Newspaper investigators in Room 15

The boys and girls in Room 15 have been learning all about The 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland.

They also got a chance to explore some newspapers and read about life at the time of the Rising and the people involved. They read about how much Dublin City changed during this time and they looked at maps of the places that were used during the fighting.

It was really interesting and we reported back what we had learned to the class.
