Carrick Library 1916 Projects

Pupils from 3rd to 6th have been working on a project run by Carrick Library based around Easter 1916 and an imagined one in 2016!

The pupils worked very hard on these and the projects have now been submitted to the library.  Call into the library over the coming weeks to view their work.

As part of the project they wrote some sense poems based around the Rising.
