St. Bridget’s Crosses

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 23rd January 2012

On Friday the 27th of January, we are making St. Bridget’s Crosses as part arts and crafts. We have to bring in elastic bands to tie the ends of the cross. We have to bring in 6 incase 1 snaps. Our teacher is going to bring in the rushes. We get to make as many as we want but we only have time to make one cross. We get to take it home with us but the best one goes on the diary. Sometimes when were done ours we help the younger class. We really enjoy doing these every year.

Green schools

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 23rd January 2012

Every Monday our class goes out side to check the water metre for the school. We are doing this to try and help us to get our third green flag(For Water). There are eight numbers on the metre. We have a sheet for all the readings we are going to get. Shauna Courtney was the last person to check the metre. The water metre is outside the gate of the school so a teacher has to go out with us to check the metre.
