In Fifth class we have been studying the Normans, their origins, their invasion of Ireland and their legacy. We have researched, completed and presented projects on this topic, either electronically or on paper. We have constructed castles in Art classes, incorporating as many features of the Norman Castles as we could. We have further explored the theme of the Normans through literacy, with the story of "Strongbow" by Morgan Llewellyn striking a great chord with us, especially learning about his first conquest in battle at the tender age of 15. We have used Hotseating and Conscience Alley techniques in Drama to further our understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the topic. We have loved exploring this topic, and we hope that you enjoy looking through our work!
