A chairde! Parents, Guardians and friends!
This week we will be celebrating Irish language and culture as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge. We will be busy learning Irish songs and dances, playing games through Irish, reading and writing stories, listening to Irish music and promoting the Irish language throughout the school.
We would like to invite you to join in the fun next Friday 16th March.
· Join us between 8:30 and 9a.m. for an Irish breakfast in the school hall. Some of our students will be serving Irish tea, scones, brown bread and other baked goods for parents to enjoy! They will be helping parents to learn some Irish phrases so that you can have chat ‘as Gaeilge’ while you sip your tea!
· Classes will be performing some Irish songs, poems and dances for parents in the hall between 9 and 10a.m.
Please come and celebrate with us! Bígí ann!
We would be delighted if anyone would like to contribute baked goods for our Irish Breakfast morning. Some ideas of Irish foods include:
· Soda bread or brown bread
· Barmbrack or fruit bread
· Potato cakes
· Oat cakes
· Apple cake
· Spreads: blackberry jam, apple jelly or Irish butter
We are learning about clothes in Irish this month
The children know 'Tá _____ orm' which means 'I am wearing _____'
Ask them about it!
Here is a little clip with some of the irish words for some clothes
Bia/ Food is our November topic in Irish, the children might know the irish words for their food at home, and they will certainly know the names for the foods in their lunchboxes!
