We learned all about St Brigid in history and religion recently. The children learned to sing 'We Sing a Song to Brigid', made their own St Brigid's matchstick crosses, and also researched and presented different myths and facts about St Brigid. The children discussed the stories of 'St Brigid and the Fox', 'St Brigid's Cloak', 'St Brigid and the Harp', 'St Brigid and the Ever-Burning Fire', 'St Brigid's wells and 'St Brigid's Religious Life'. The children then illustrated, wrote about and presented these stories in small groups to the class. The children also created a whole-class St Brigid's cloak for display in the corridor.
