“You must never feel badly about making mistakes ... as long as you take the trouble to learn from them. For you often learn more by being wrong for the right reasons than you do by being right for the wrong reasons.” ―
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Year 4 have been learning to play the guitar this year. We performed some of the songs we have been practising. Some of the songs we performed were, La Farrucca, Jazzy Promenade, Sambatini and My Granny is a Super, Super Gran.

As part of our topic, Passport to Europe, we took part in a dance workshop, where each class learnt a traditional dance from a different European country. 4W danced an Irish jig, 4M danced the Spanish Flamenco, 4KM learnt a tradition Greek dance and 4J learnt a German ‘tanz’, which is the German word for dance. We had so much fun sharing our dances with the other classes!

To begin our topic of Passport to Europe, each class learnt all about a different European country. We had lots of fun learning about different languages, cultures, food and music from that country. We had a go at making traditional Irish soda bread, we found it difficult to knead the mixture into a dough but we really enjoyed eating the result.
