3rd class trip to Glebe Gallery and House
3rd Class had an action-packed and very enjoyable day in the Glebe Gallery and House. They began the day with a tour of Glebe House where Derek Hill, an artist, used to live. Derek Hill has painted many portraits of very famous people including Mary Robinson and the Queen.
3rd Class visited the Gallery and painted their very own flower pots. They are now going to sow sunflowers in pots in school next week. After painting, they explored the grounds of the gallery and house. They were given a task to build ‘a house for a mouse’ using anything from the outdoors. Imaginations ran wild! Following this, they went on a nature trail and fairy door trail around the grounds. They put the finishing touches to their ‘mouse houses’ before boarding the bus back to school. 3rd Class really enjoyed all the activities of the day from painting, to exploring the outdoors as well as the indoors.
