La Fheile Padraig

Hello Everybody and a La Fheile Padraig Shona Duit as we celebrate St Patrick's day in Ardenza this week! Here is what each room will be doing to celebrate it!
In the baby room Suzanne and Geraldine will be doing the colour green with the babies and making Patrick's day crafts with them. In circle time they will have a green mystery basket of all things green and say the colour green. They will tip the basket over and ask the babies to pick up the green toy and put it into the basket to reinforce the word green. They will put on Irish dancing music and do dancing and make handprint shamrocks and flags. The babies will also get to play with green glupe and explore it.
In the toddler room Bernie and Laura will talk to the children about St Patrick in circle time and how he got rid of the hissy snakes. They will do actions and sounds of a snake and Bernie will pretend to be St Patrick! They will have great fun playing chase in the toddler room! They will learn about the colour green and the colours of the Irish flag and for arts and crafts they will make flags and shamrocks and colour pictures of ST Patrick.
Upstairs the ECCE room and Preschool rooms will be learning all about St Patrick.
Shell, Mary Ann and Lisa will read the story of St Patrick to the children and do questions and answers after. They will do role play acting like snakes and St Patrick and listen to Irish music. The girls will do their best at trying to remember how to do their 1 2 3 ‘s and teach the children! The girls will also talk about how people around the world celebrate it with parades and they will look at pictures and videos of celebrations. The kids will do lots of arts and crafts making shamrock hats and Irish flags which will come in handy for the parade. The girls will also use a few Irish words like ‘slan’ and ‘Dia dhuit’ to greet the children. Have a lovely St Patricks day!
