We started the new term with a day learning about Irish culture. Mrs Sullivan told us about how her Irish family celebrate Christmas. Then we pretended to go to Ireland. We looked on the Internet to find out more about it and we found photos of a beautiful place called The Cliffs of Moher. We learned that many Irish people are Christians and that there are many churches in Ireland. We saw photos of Celtic crosses that remind Christian people about Jesus. We listened to the Irish Legend about a giant called Finn.
We made Irish soda bread.
We made Celtic crosses in clay.
We imagined and drew Finn's footprint. Then, we tried to estimate how many of our footprints would fit into the giant's footprint.
We pretended to take our caravan to Ireland.
