First Class Trip to Skerries Mills

On Friday the 3rd of March First Class went on a class trip to Skerries Mills.We had been learning about windmills at school and we were very excited to see a real windmill. IMG_3006The tour started in the mill house. We seen the ovens where cakes and bread were baked using flour made in the mills.

IMG_3008 IMG_3007We also got to see some grinding stones, which were used before the invention of windmills. We even got a chance to use the grinding stones.
