Poem for Spring

Spring: You bring back the beauty of Nature to combat it’s harshness.
In your endless wonder, we lose ourselves.
Lost, is the cold and darkness.
Victory is yours, Spring. The Winter is repelled.
And now is the time to put the ice cream back on the store shelves.

Henry McMenamin

THE STORY OF SAINT BRIDGET

Many years ago…
There was a woman named Bridget. She was born into slavery. Which means that she worked for someone without being paid. (Kind of like your Mum and Dad!)
One day, Bridget and her master went to visit the king. The king was a Christian and and could see that Bridget was holy. The king convinced Bridget’s master to let Brigid be free. Years passed, and Brigid wanted to build a school only for women.

Brigid went back to the king who set her free to ask for land. Brigid didn’t have much money, so she asked for the land for free. The king said: ”No.” Brigid left. She prayed to God for help. God said he would help. Brigid went back to the king and asked: ”If I place my cloak on the ground, Can I have the land it covers?” ”Of course!” said the king. Brigid and the king went to the land Bridget wanted and Bridget laid her cloak down. Animals came and stretched the cloak until it was 15 acres in size!

The king knew this was a miracle and let Brigid have the land. With the land, Brigid could build her school. She did, and she was made a saint after she died. Saint Brigid’s school is still enjoyed by people today.

TASTY TREATS

Tasty Treats Shop

I love tasty treats. We have lovely customers, they have lovely manners. We don’t just sit there looking around; we are pleasant at all times. We love selling, its fun.

We always have something new in our shop. At the moment we have Wagon wheels, Popcorn, drinks, marshmallows, Jives and Spuddy’s crisps.

The best salespeople in our class are Dan, Michael, Ronan, Max, Robyn, Brandon, Cian, Aoife, myself and Victoria. We are all really good at it.

We get the stock in Aldi’s.

We do tasty treats on Thursday, we all take turns at being the manager. The manager writes a letter to our mums and dads to say tasty treat is on and to send some money in for tasty treats. The manager tells us what job we have to do. The manager makes sure the customers are happy.

We call the students early in the morning class by class. After tasty treats is over we make a new shopping list and count our money and work out our profits. My favourite part in Tasty Treats is working in the shop.

Each week we put our profits in the bank. When we get enough money we split it up for all of the students to take home their wages. Everyone loves getting their wages.

Tasty treats has helped us all to learn about money. Its hard work but it’s worth it.
