We saw the lights flashing and counted how many blue lights were on the car. Can you remember how many there were boys and girls?

We even got to hear the siren. It was very loud and we had to put our fingers in our ears!

On Thursday 21st of March Nurse Sharon came into school to tell us all about her job.

The postman’s bike is very heavy and has three big bags on it to carry letters.

1916 Commemorations

On Wednesday the 11th of November two members of the Irish army arrived at our school to present us with an Irish flag and our very own copy of the proclamation of the Irish Republic.  We learnt how to look after our flag and what the colours represent. We also had a very special visitor, John Stephenson, whose grandfather fought at the GPO in 1916. He told us all about the rising and about all the interesting places in our locality where fighting actually took place. We had a great day.
