Last Wednesday, 4th Class walked to the National Museum of Ireland and enjoyed a Viking tour. The class saw a real skeleton, learned about the Vikings’ lives and looked at the artefacts they left behind. It was interesting and engaging! A pit stop was made at Merrion Square Park Playground for some lunch and play, followed by a visit to the National Gallery of Ireland to take a sketching tour. The class learned about the elements of art and experimented with line, shading, tone and even the balance of movement in art. The class finished the day with some emergency ice creams to make sure they had enough energy to make it back to school.
All in all – a great day out with a great group of children!
