March 14th – 16th

We will be closing for Easter holidays on Wed 16th March, reopening on Mon 4th April –

Happy St Patrick’s Day, and have a wonderful Easter everyone!!

We look forward to seeing you after the break!

This week in The Children’s House will be an extra busy one as it’s an extra short one – so much to do, and so little time….we will be making St Patrick’s Day crafts and decorating the classrooms, doing dressing up, and having a mini parade on Wednesday, as well as an Easter hunt!!

St Patrick’s Day Song (tune of If You’re Happy & You Know It)

If you’re wearing green today, dance a jig,
If you’re wearing green today, dance a jig,
If you’re wearing green today, dance a jig then smile and say –
Have a very happy St Patrick’s Day!

If you’re wearing green today, clap your hands…
If you’re wearing green today, spin around…
If you’re wearing green today, stamp your feet…
If you’re wearing green today, shout hooray…

March 7th – 11th

This week in The Children’s House we will be looking forward to Easter and making some Easter crafts, as well as doing some cooking, drama and yoga – another busy and fun week ahead!!

Seachtain na Gaeilge continues for another week, and we had a great time last week learning the names of body parts, weather and animals in Irish, and it was especially fun trying our hands (or feet…) at Irish dancing! Within the classroom we use Irish phrases such as ‘faigh do chóta’ (get your coat), ‘dún an doras’ (close the door), ‘cé leis é?’ (whose is this), ‘anseo’ (here) etc on a daily basis, so we are trying to expand our Irish vocabularies greatly during Seachtain na Gaeilge!

5 Little Easter Eggs (fingerplay)

5 little Easter eggs, lovely colours wore,
Mother ate the blue one, then there were 4.
4 little Easter eggs, 2 and 2 you see,
Daddy ate the red one, then there were 3.
3 little Easter eggs, before I knew,
Sister ate the yellow one, then there were 2.
2 little Easter eggs, oh what fun!
Brother ate the purple one, then there was 1.
1 little Easter egg, see me run,
I ate the last one, then there were none!!

Goodbye to February!!
