4th Class visited The National Gallery & Natural History Museum

4th class trip

The two fourth classes went on a trip to the National Gallery of Ireland and the Natural History Museum. The two classes were brought around the gallery by tour guides. We saw paintings by Picasso, Caravaggio and Jack B. Yeats. Our favourites were the paintings by Picasso and Jack B. Yeats. We had our lunch and played in the playground before visiting the Natural History Museum. We saw lots of different animals. The ground floor was full of native birds, animals, fish and insects. The first floor was more exciting because there were bigger animals. We liked the Indian elephant the best. There was a big collection of bats. Some were cute but some were quite scary.
