A group of 6th Class pupils recently went on a trip to Chester Beatty Library and Dublin Castle.
In Chester Beatty Library, the pupils examined a variety of objects and discussed how they might have been made. The pupils learned about different materials and the methods of making the objects they saw. The pupils really enjoyed the trip, and their guide asked them some fantastic questions which really helped to get the children thinking about how the objects were made.
After visiting the Library, the pupils were brought on a guided tour of Dublin Castle. They learned about the history of Dublin Castle, from its construction to the present day.
