St Patrick’s Day

Grade 5/6 have been writing acrostic poems about St Patrick. Here is the poem that we wrote as a class. Grade 5/6 share your poems here. To our visitors do you know any facts about St Patrick that you can teach us?

St Patrick,

The patron saint of Ireland and Melbourne,

Patrick is his name,

And we celebrate on the 17th of March,

To celebrate people dress up as leprachauns,

Really it’s a laugh for young and old,

If you find a 4 leaf clover it is lucky,

Celebrated around the world,

Kicked out the snakes from Ireland.

  1. I love St. Patrick’s Day! Because then I know what to wear!:) My sister has a basketball game on Friday, and if she wins, then she plays on St. Patrick’s Day! What color do I wear? Blue, or green?

    • In Australia we wear green on St Patrick’s Day. Why do you wear blue on St Patrick’s day?

      In Australia some people get dressed up. My Mum has always loved to buy St Patrick’s day dress ups for my children. What sort of things do you do to celebrate St Patrick’s day?

  2. Stolen by the pirates
    The 17 of march that is when it is celerbrated

    Patrick is christian
    And Holy also
    The pirates made him become a slave for them
    Rich and powerful and had faith in him
    It is a myth that he kicked out the snakes
    Ccaring and loving
    Kind with the leprachauns
    By Dean

  3. Here is my Saint Patrick’s day peom:
    Siant Patrick is his name
    Told everyone in Ireland about God

    People dress up as leprechauns
    A four leaf clover is a lucky sign
    Taken from friends and family
    Really lets people bring out their inner leprechaun
    Is born in the forth cenetury
    Celebrated on the 17th of March
    Kicked out the snakes from Ireland.

  4. This is my St Patrick poem:

    St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and Melbourne
    Taken away by pirates

    Patrick didn’t believe in God until he was 16
    And the pirates sold him as a slave
    Then he escaped from the person who bought him
    Religion was what he turned to
    If you find four leaf clover
    Call yourself lucky
    Kicked the snakes out from Ireland

    IN GOD

  11. St Patrick was
    Taken from his family at 16 by
    Pirates then sold him

    Caring and
    Kind person.

    Ireland was where he was born
    Called by god
    Known by christians

  15. St Patrick,
    Taken away to become a slave,
    Patricks his name strong and brave,
    always waiting and wanting to escape,

    Remebering Patrick still now to the day,
    If you come across a four leafed clover keep it with you. make a display,
    celebrated around the world on the 17th of March,
    Kidnapped and taken away, st Patrick in our hearts.

  20. Here is my St. Patrick’s Day poem:
    Saint Patrick was slave
    Taken by pirates and sold

    Patrick was stolen when he was 16
    And born in the fourth cenetury
    The people celebrate on the 17th of March
