Room 1 – Celebrating Grandparent’s Day

Grandparent’s Day took place on Friday 23rd of January.

Many grandparents visited room 1.

We really enjoyed their stories and we learned so much.

Visiting the ‘Jeanie Johnston’ Famine Ship

On the 28th of January some 5th class boys and girls went to visit the ‘Jeanie Johnston’ ship on Dublin’s Quays of the River Liffey.

We were learning all about the Great Irish Famine in history class. We went into Dublin City Centre and went onto the ship. We learned all about how people travelled on the ship back in 1845 while trying to escape the Famine in Ireland.

It was really interesting to learn all about life aboard the ship. We went to see the Famine statues on the Quays too.

We also went to Grand Canal Dock and did some sketching of the beautiful scenery and played in a really cool playground.

It was a really great day!!
