First class had a wonderful day on our school tour in Achill. Our first stop was the deserted village where we learned about what life was like 200 years ago. We discovered that it was normal for about fourteen people to live in a house that was not much bigger than our bedroom. What was even more surprising was that these people had to share the house with a cow, a pig and some chickens! We then went to the aquarium. We saw lobsters, sea urchins, scallops and a baby shark. We held a starfish and were spat at by a clam! After our tour of the aquarium we did an art workshop where we created our own lobster and decorated their tank. We finished the day at a nearby restaurant where we had a lovely lunch before returning home to Newport.
