5th Class had a great time at the Epic Museum yesterday (6th of March). We got the bus there and back, which was a great treat! The museum had lots of interactive exhibits and we learned lots of facts we didn’t know before. Both classes had a great time and enjoyed getting out of the classroom!
Julia in Áine’s 5th Class did a wonderful write-up of our trip which I will share with you now.
“Today we went to the Epic Museum in Dublin! It was very fun! It was a great experience. First when we got there, we got a fact sheet that we had to fill in as we were walking, and a passport we could stamp in every room. We walked down to the rooms. They were very cool! The rooms had lots of facts, videos and cool statues. One of the rooms was about the Titanic, and there was a really nice statue of a ship. There was lots of rooms about famous Irish people and emigration. We learned lots of cool facts.
Victor Herbert was an Irish classical singer. John Tidol was the first person to explain why the sky is blue. Sir James Martin from Down was an engineer. Orla Kiely is a famous Irish designer. Agnes Clerke from Cork was an astronomer. We also watched a mini movie.
Overall it was a great experience and I had a lot of fun! I would recommend visiting the EPIC Museum because you will learn lots of new facts.”
We had a great day out, and learned a lot. A few people have said they want to go again with their families! Thank you so much to all of the teachers who came with us especially Robert, Brenda and Máire.
Here are some of the photos Áine’s class took while we were there.
We hope you enjoyed reading about our trip and maybe check the museum out for yourselves!
