Santa visit to the odd classes

We had a very exciting,  socially-distanced visit from Santa Claus to the school on Tuesday. He told us all about his busy preparations in the North Pole. He  especially enjoys his visits to St. Brigid’s as his reindeers can go to visit their Irish cousins in the Phoenix park. Santa is back in our school today to meet the boys and girls in the other classes so look out for some more photos later!

 

EU Code week in St. Brigids’s #codeweek

Some of the children in Senior Infants, 3rd and 6th class took part in EU code week.

The children were coding in their pods with Bee Bot floor robots,  the Rainforest coding adventure game and using code builder with Minecraft Education.

EU Code Week is a  initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.

Take a look at some photos and videos:
