On 15 December, Mr. Noel Power visited Glór na Mara. Every year he works with a team and builds the crib in the church. The team start work on the first Sunday in December, and the crib is unveiled at midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

Noel described the Holy Land at the time of Christ’s birth and showed the children a map. He also spoke about the history of the Holy Cross crib. The crib is made from local materials: moss from the Comeragh mountains, reeds from a bog four miles away and limestone, bushes and pines from the Tramore area. There are twenty seven wooden figures remaining in the crib, and they are made out of Austrian oak. From time to time, Noel and his team have to repair the figures which are over 120 years old.

The BFG

In school we are reading The BFG.  We’ve drawn a picture of the Bloodbottler because Roald Dahl gave a great description of him.  The BFG is nice, jumbly and kind. The Bloodbottler is 20 feet taller than The BFG.  The Bloodbottler eats human ‘beans’.  The Bloodbottler wears a cloth around his waist.  The Bloodbottler is greedy, hairy, horrifying, fat, yucky, nosey, ugly and scary.  The Bloodbottler is a bone crunching brute.   We like laughing at words like ‘whizzpopper’, ‘snozzcumbers’ and ‘bellyhoppers’.

Observational Drawings
We were learning about drawing and how important it is to look at what you are drawing.  We turned the pictures upside down before we drew them so that we would concentrate on the lines.  We drew straight lines, wiggly lines, chubby lines, wavy lines, curvy lines and lots more.  It made it much easier to copy the picture by looking at the lines rather than the whole picture.
