1916 and Us

In preparation for the 1916 centenary next year, 3rd and 4th class are learning re the events of the 1916 Easter Rising. We are learning the Irish National Anthem – Amhrán na bhFiann and we are reading a supplement from the Irish Independent called Children of the Revolution. It is very interesting as it mentions lots of places and street names close to our school. We hope to go on a local walk in the near future to visit these places of interest, such as the G.P.O., Moore Street and the Four Courts.
