Grandparents visit in Rang a Sé

Sixth class were so delighted to welcome the most interesting, funny and warm visitors ever to the class this week: Our Grandparents!!!

We entertained them with our singing and Bodhrán playing and even read them a poem.

The best part of the visit was hot seating some of the visitors to ask them questions about their school life. We had some very interesting answers and we learned so much!

School when our grandparents were young was very different but there was a lot of similarities as well, which surprised us!

We’re so grateful to have had the chance to speak to a primary source of evidence for our historian work.

Here is the poem that Kashmala composed and read today:



Today Today, it is grandparent’s day

And we hope it is special in every way

We would like to thank each and every one of you

To take the time out, to come and see what is new

I am sure that everyone is very glad to see

All of our dear relatives, let’s face it, we all agree

We have a song to sing and Bodhráns too

Just to sing it all in front of you

After all of this is done, we hope you aren’t let down

For we have worked day and night and even turned upside down

All of us have worked to make that little extra mile

Because today is Grandparent’s day and it only happens

Once in a while!
