Visit from the Fire Service
On 18th November, we were delighted to welcome members of the Fire Service in Mountmellick to our classroom. They spoke to us about Fire Safety in the Home. They also spoke to us about what to do in case of a fire emergency at home.
We are learning all about the explorer Christopher Columbus. Columbus discovered America by setting sail from Spain in 1492 with three ships - the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. Columbus originally hoped to sail to India, however he landed in America by mistake. When he landed in America he thought he has made in to India and called the local people 'Indians'. We now know that these people were Native Americans.
