The middle room went on their school tour today. We went to the Museum of Country Life in Turlough. The children were split into two groups and took part in two activities. First we got a tour of the Museum, learning all about life in the past. We saw lots of old objects and tools from life in rural Ireland years ago. We even got to try on some clothes from the past which was great fun!
We enjoyed lunch in Brambles Café.
After lunch, we had a ceramic painting workshop. We learned that cups and plates are made from clay, dried in a kiln, decorated with special paint and then glazed in order to make them shiny. We designed and decorated our very own ceramic plate with special ink. We really enjoyed this workshop!
We had a great day!
