P6/7G made Christingles today.
The orange represents the world. The ribbon symbolises Jesus. The four cocktail sticks are the seasons and the sweets God's bounty. The candle is the light of Jesus.
KR and year 11/12 spent a morning with Peter Crutchley from the BBC. We chatted about Christmas and the traditions we have in our family. Our finished report is now on the BBC website - have a listen!
In 1888 Queen Victoria granted Belfast city status. Construction of The City Hall began in 1898 and was completed in 1906. So it was a Victorian design!
Not only did we tour the City Hall but we got to meet The Lord Mayor, Deirdre Hargey and Alderman Tommy Sandford. They kindly gave the children selection boxes!
We then had a lovely lunch in The Bobbin before we toured The Christmas Market.
As part of our maths we made Victorian recipe Gingerbread Men. We did add a 21st Century twist by using mini smarties and silver balls. Everyone preferred them compared to raisins!
We used measure for weighing, temperature and time.
Our recipe can can be found on the BBC website
