On Friday, March 29th 2019 the children in first, second and third class went on a very exciting trip to the McHale factory in Ballinrobe.
When we arrived we were met by our tour guide and we were all very excited. We went to the board room and we got to look at a video about the history of the company. It was very interesting! After that we had a tour of the showroom and we learned all about the balers and different machines. We have done lots of work on inventions and science this year and it was great to see real inventions and how they are made in real-life. We learned that different materials and pieces are put together to make the machinery. They even use robotic machines to make the balers!
When we came home we typed a story about our trip on our Chromebooks.
We were very lucky to have the fantastic opportunity to see real-life inventions. We had a magical, fun-filled memorable day!
