A number of the 3rd classes wrote poems about what Ireland means to them, in light of what it meant to those in 1916. They mentioned many different elements of our country - the people, the culture, the music, the places to visit, the freedom they have. Below you will find a number of the children's own thoughts. In Mr Hickey's class they each wrote a poem, and filmed eachother reciting it. They then got to watch the videos back.
