March in 5th class


At the beginning of March, 5th class took a trip to the Athenry Heritage Centre.We had a fantastic tour where we got to dress up in Medieval costumes and act out scenes  from the past.Some of us got to dress up as medieval ladies, others as peasants and knights.We loved dressing up.
