"Eggy Easter" Project 1

The children at our linked school in Poland have been busy celebrating Easter too although they are still at school. Take a look at the pictures and the messages that they have sent so far.

 

"We are from Poland a country situated in the central Europe by the Baltic sea. Let us introduce ourselves. This is our group, the group number 6 from the nursery in Olsztyn in Poland.This is our nursery in which we meet with each other from Monday to Friday. It is situated in Kortowo, a housing estate in which most departments of Warmia and Mazury University are located."

 

"Pisanki (Pisanky, pysanky) are colored and decorated Easter eggs. The art of pisanki is cultivated in Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania and many other East and Central European countries. The name pisanki comes from the word "pisac" means "to write" or "to print". Easter eggs are in Polish called jajka wielkanocne."

 

"It's our Polish tradition to go to church on Holy Saturday before Easter to bless the Easter basket called "święconka" in Polish."

People put meat, coloured eggs, cakes, bread, salt, horseradish, ham and little lamb. At church a priest sprinkles baskets with holly water. The blessed food remains untouched Sunday morning.

 

"On Easter Monday we celebrate "Śmigus Dyngus". Traditionally, boys only boys would throw water on girls, however, nowadays boys and girls throw containers of water over each other. It is said that a girl who is not wet will be a spinster."
