Project-Irish Counties

For this fortnight each child will complete a project based on one of the Irish counties.

Each project should include information such as the:

  • Flag
  • Crest
  • Population
  • Motto
  • Geography (Rivers, Lakes and Mountains)
  • History ( Origins of county, meaning of the name)
  • Famous people
  • Places of interest
  • Sport
  • Transport
  • Large towns
  • Photos
  • Drawings of landmarks
  • Any other interesting information you may find while researching the county!

We recommend that the children consider the project carefully to begin with. They should talk at home about how they would like their project to look. Each child should plan their project and timetable at this point as they are becoming more au fait with completing them. For example, each boy or girl can decide which photos they would like to print and which famous landmarks they will draw etc. We are really looking forward to seeing what the children produce this time as their work just keeps getting better and better! Good luck everyone.
