Today we went on the Viking Splash tour. First we got a bus from our school to town. After we were all out of the bus we got into the Viking Splash tour boat. The Viking Splash tour boats were made by women in America during the second World War. They called it the DUKW (pronounced duck). We got into seats, put on our helmets and off we went. Real Viking helmets didn’t have horns but on the Viking splash tour the helmets did have horns. We passed some really old houses that were made in the Georgian times. We drove through town until we reached a ramp with water. We put on our life jackets then the boat went into the water. We saw some divers and the Google offices.
On Sunday, 4th February 2018, 4th class went to Peace Proms. We met at the school at 4:15 . I was quite excited but late. We took a bus to the RDS and everyone was chatting about this thing and another. When we got there we had to wait on the bus because the concert before us hadn’t cleared out yet. When we finally got inside we had to wait even more because everyone had to be seated. When the rehearsal started we all stood up and sang all the songs. Greg, our conductor, gave us a few pointers. After the rehearsal we ate our snack. After that parents poured in and took their seats. It took ages because they were chatting to their children. Well, it ended up taking over an hour. At the start of the concert we were the opening act with the Disney Medley. The orchestra and soloists did a few things then we did Hairspray. Earth Song came next. Then Pop Medley. I really enjoyed everything and reach came next. Last but not least You’re the Voice. At the end of the concert we went to the waiting area. A lot of parents were already there.
Last week, 4th class took a short walk down to Rathfarnham Castle where our tour guide, Eoin showed us around. Over the last couple of weeks, the children have been researching and creating projects based on the locality.
There was a wonderful variety of projects from posters to books, scratch projects to videos.
Keep an eye on the Kids’ Blog over the next few days as some of the children’s recount pieces will appear.
Meanwhile, have a look at Saul’s fantastic video project!
