grave adventures

Well , here in scoil Dai , things are busy as ever...and with the sun shining , its a perfect opportunity to take some classes right outside ! This week we went to the old part of the college here in Maynooth and took some grave rubbings from the oldest graves we could find (the graves are from the time the college was a semenary so mainly priests are buried there) , and we had a talk about how the style of grave markers changed over the years...also it was a nature walk as we picked a few flowers to press...hopefully the results will be good ! we are also talking and studying about how people years ago made their own entertainment and indeed their own basic necessitys...we studied ragrugs and are at present collecting old t-shirts etc to make our own !
science this week (via webcam) was "Bubble science" so even little Daisy got involved ! (sorry we havent many photos the batteries ran out!)...tomorrow we visit my home village in County Wexford on the southeast coast of Ireland and hopefully we will get to both take rubbings from the old graveyard there and also photos and we will be looking out for different flowers to press too...hope you are all enjoying the wonderful sun !
