Last Thursday and Friday, 1st Class learned all about St. Brigid, her cloak, and the way she wove a cross. The children created lovely, colourful cloaks after hearing the story of how Brigid got land from the king so that she could build a church. Afterwards, the children got a chance to make their own St. Brigid’s crosses from rushes. Everyone was delighted to have a cross to bring home that day.
