1st March Celebrations

Tuesday the 1st of March was a busy day for celebrations this year!

Sophia and Bea taught us a little about Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, an Italian festival which signifies the last day of Carnival. Sophia was dressed to celebrate Carnival.

Alesia, Rares and Bogdan taught us a little about Martisor which is a Romanian celebration marking first day of Spring. They brought lovely Martisor trinkets to bring us luck and wealth.

Carol’s Junior Infants made shaving cream pancakes to celebrate Pancake Tuesday while some of the other classes enjoyed the real thing!

Lorraine’s First Class were learning about Spain and Carla taught everyone some Spanish dance moves and some Spanish phrases. Thanks to Carla’s mam for providing delicious tortilla de patatas which were a big hit in the classroom.
