Today is the first day of Spring and today is also the patron day of St. Brigid. We listened to a story about St. Brigid. She lay her cloak down on the ground and that is where she built her church. Then the two classes made a giant St. Brigid’s cloak with lots of beautiful colours and fabrics.
Then we coloured in their own pictures of St. Brigid and her cloak. We tried colouring on our tummies. It was hard but really good for strengthening our core muscles.
St. Brigid also had a special cross for teaching people how to bless themselves. We made our own crosses using lollipop sticks.
