Seo cupla pictiuri.
Chuaigh rang a sé go dtí an halla inniu. Bhí ceoilteoirí ann. Bhí siad ag seinm an veidhlín, an bodhrán agus an feadóg stáin. Bhain gach duine taitneamh as.
Our class had to make up a dance to the music of an Irish reel. A reel is a dance in 4/4 time.
We worked in groups of 8! Here are some pictures. Our teacher said we did really well to come up with a dance on our own.
We might post a video when we have practiced our dances a bit more.
Sarah in our class won a big trophy for her set dancing. Her group did really well today.
Our trip to Music in the Classroom
Last Friday the 18th of January all the 4th classes went to see Music in the Classroom with the RTE Concert Orchestra in the TLT in Drogheda.
We got on the bus at 9.30. It was a double-decker bus and we sat upstairs.
When we arrived in Drogheda it started to snow. It was freezing cold but we didn’t mind too much because we were so excited. We saw other classes and teachers going in to the concert also.
Before the concert began we took our seats on the balcony. We could see all the instruments from the orchestra on the stage.
First the conductor introduced the orchestra and all the different families of instruments, the strings, the brass, the woodwind and percussion. Our class like percussion instruments the most.
After that the orchestra played Dance Party, we all danced and sang along to ‘Rock around the Clock’, ‘YMCA’, ’King of the Road’, ‘Bobby’s Girl’, ‘Greased Lightning’, ’Cotton Eyed Joe’, ‘Ice, Ice Baby’ and ‘Lipstick’ and many more.
Later there was a comedy act between the conductor and his side-kick who was trying to hit the conductor with a hammer. It was very funny. We also listened to a piece of music called ‘Surprise’ and some of the musicians were messing. There were also girls dancing, they did American Dancing, Irish Dancing, The Blue Tango and Line Dancing. Our class really liked Line Dancing.
Finally, they played ‘Lipstick’ one more time, we all sang along and danced. Then it was time to go home on the bus. We were all sad because we had to go back to school. We really enjoyed ourselves and we wish we could go again By Ms Sullivan’s Fourth Class
