Christmas Time

It has been a very busy few weeks preparing for Christmas in Wandesforde School. 4th, 5th and 6th class have been busy doing lots of Christmas activities in different subjects. In art we made wreaths from tissue paper, then made bells and stuck on bows.

In English we read the story The Little Match Girl and then painted scenes of the Christmas things she saw through the window each time she lit a match.


In English we also read the poem The Night Before Christmas and answered questions on it. Then we sketched our favourite images from the poem.

In Religious Education we made a Jesse Tree for Advent. The tree is decorated with symbols from the bible to remind us of the stories of the Old Testament before the birth of Jesus. Each star on the tree represents a pupil in our class.

We read information about the origins of Advent and wrote about it. The work was displayed around our Advent Calendar. Each day a pupil had a chance to take a treat from the calendar.

In Gaeilge we drew Nativity scenes and 5th and 6th class wrote about their favourite Christmas things.



Merry Christmas to everyone, enjoy the holidays!
