June has been a busy month in 4th class. Ms Besanson presented a lovely assembly mid month where she spoke about resilience, something we have learned a lot about in 4th class. We shared with the school ideas on being resilient and the tools that are handy to draw on.
Unfortunately, our school sports was cancelled because of the rain but we managed to have a mini sports day with 3rd which was fun.
We were very busy preparing for the music generation concert at which we sang beautifully in front of the school, parents and Grandparents. Some pupils performed beautiful solos during the concert, it was simply amazing.
On mid summers day, June 21st, 4th class boarded the Dart at Greystones for a fun filled, action packed tour to Dublin city. Once off the Dart we strolled to the Ark in Temple Bar where we took part in a Game Plan Workshop. We designed our own board games using a variety of materials. After a quick lunch at the Ark we strolled over to Trinity College and queued to see the Book of Kells and the Long Room in Trinity. It was so interesting and we asked many interesting questions of the people that worked there. We learnt all about how the books are organised, saw the book of Kells and saw one of the 12 remaining Proclamations of Independence from 1916. After this we found our way to the Zoological Museum where we took part in a very interesting Skulls and Skeletons Workshop. We held live giant cockroaches and giant African snails, the skulls of cows and a Siberian Tiger and much more! We boarded the Dart back to Greystones just after 3 pm tired and exhausted after a really fun day of learning.
