Primary 4 have been making Advent Lanterns

December 12th, 2018

Primary 4 have been making Advent Lanterns.

Our lanterns are like the ones that Polish children carry to Morning Mass throughout Advent.

We made them by drawing two Christmas pictures on the sides of an old oatcake box. We cut the pictures out then painted the lantern with sparkly paint. Then we stuck tissue paper on to make  windows.

We put a little battery powered nightlight into the box so that the light glows through the little windows.

We used string for a handle.

Here are pictures of us making the lanterns then pictures of the finished work:

Christmas in Primary 3

December 12th, 2018

This week has been a great start to our Christmas fun!  We watched a pantomime, ‘Dick Whittington’.  It was so funny.  We loved singing along with the songs and doing the actions to ‘Baby Shark’.  We booed for the Rat King and helped Dick Whittington.  It was great.

We had a delicious Christmas lunch.  On the menu was Turkey, Steak Pie and Lasagne with the usual trimmings of pigs in blankets and stuffing.  There was Christmas music in the background and the P7s were our waiters for the day.  Thank-you for such a good service.  We enjoyed having lunch together with our teachers sitting with us.  Thanks to all the kitchen staff for making it such a special experience.
