On the 06/02/18 we went to our school hall to watch a show. It was based on the movie Sleeping Beauty. It was about a girl that was a princess but she did not know she was a princess because when she was very young a witch cast a spell on her. Then on her sixteenth birthday she would prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and she would die. But then the good fairy reversed the spell when she pricked her finger and she would not die but fall into a deep sleep from which she could only be woken from by being kissed by a prince that truly loved her.
So the Fairy brought her to a cottage in the middle of the woods away from all the wheels in the land. So soon her sixteenth birthday came but the witch found her and put on a disguise so that the princess would not find out that she was the witch. She then gave the princess a present and it was a spinning wheel, she forced the princess to touch the spindle of the spinning wheel and the princess fell into a deep sleep. But she knew no prince, let alone a prince that loved her, the only person that loved her and that she loved back was the wood cutter’s son. So the wood cutter’s son went to go find the princess but he got locked in the witche’s dungeon. But the witche’s minion did not like the witch so he helped the wood cutter’s son to get out and get to the King so he could change him into a prince. He went over to the princess and kissed her. She awoke and they had a huge wedding and invited all the kingdom and they lived happily ever after
That’s the original story but they done like dances in between all the scenes. It was really funny because they got two teachers to get up and dance with them it was really good. Everybody in my class enjoyed it. It was the best version of sleeping beauty ever!
On the 4th of February 5th and 6th went to the Dublin Peace Proms concert were we had to sing. There were about 2,500 children singing from different counties, we had to sing about 12 songs. We wore a white t-shirt, black trousers and black shoes. The peace proms concert started at 2pm and we came back home at 6:45pm. It was a lot of fun there. We had to bring a bottle of water, lunch, a treat, a snack and a plastic bag. You were not allowed to bring a phone, IPad or money, they were very strict about that. There was a conductor there, his name was Greg Beardsell who is renowned for his extraordinary ability to lead powerful exhilarating performances. And there were soloists too their names were Ross Scanlon, Tenor Lauren Murphy, Vocals St. Colmcille, Pipe and Drum Corps Cormac Keegan, Uilleann Pipes King Academy of Irish Dancing, Katie Weir, Soprano Patricia Treacy, Violin Grahame Harris, Bagpipes Michelle Johnson Dancers. The whole class enjoyed going to the Peace Proms concert. Thank you for reading my story.

On February 4th we are going to the RDS in Dublin to take part in Peace Proms so we are practicing really hard. There are some of our favourite artists/bands like Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons and the Vamps included in the songs. We are doing Disney songs like Moana and Zootopia. 5th and 6th class are doing Peace Proms. There are a lot of schools doing peace proms from all over Ireland! Peace Proms is supported by the Department of Education. The CBOI (cross border orchestra of Ireland) is a charity in Ireland and the UK. Peace Proms give school children all over Ireland (North and South) a chance to sing and get together to have fun and also raise money for charity. I think it will be very fun and I hope that we have no homework on Monday.
