Today, in Miss Walsh’s room we made St. Brigid’s Day Crosses using rushes.
We had a wonderful day on Wednesday when we welcomed our grandparents to the school for Grandparents’ Day.
Following a short prayer service our guests visited their grandchildren in their classrooms where they answered questions, played music, sang, played board games, knitted and performed card tricks. The children loved showing their grandparents examples of their work as well as entertaining them with some songs, music and poems.
The day ended with some tea and coffee in the hall.
Look….we found tesselation in our classroom.
