"Classroom Travels...Home of O'Barney!" Classroomtravels's Profile
Hi from Classroomtravels 2011/2012
Hello from all at classroomtravels. We are the newest group of children to take over the classroomtravels VT page. Thank you to last years class for starting this VT page and for all their hard work - Check the Personal Album "Classroomtravels 2010/2011" for memories :(
We are now looking forward to learning things from all around the world. We are proud to take over the classroomtravels page from last years class and hope we make as many nice friends as they did. This is all so new to us and we hope that we can do a good job as shepherds to O'Barney!

Hello and welcome to classroom travels. This page is all about our travels, places we have been, things we have seen and people we have met. We hope to share our travel memories and information on places we have visited and learned about in class.
This week we are going to be learning all about Australia. We got presents from our friends Aussie Barney and Marg in Australia and we want to learn all about Australia now, especially about the cute koalas and kangaroos. Later in the week we will set up an Australia page about all we have learnt. Check back later!
We had great fun in school for Hallowe'en. The pumpkins in our garden were ready just in time and we picked them and our teacher carved scary faces in them. We made pumpkins from paper mache too!!
Congratulations to Ellie who won the competition in Mr. Simm's Sweet Shop to decorate and design the best sweet bag. Her bag was so colourful and bright and a little bit spooky too!

Céad Míle Fáilte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes) to O'Barney who has just touched down in Ireland and has come to live with us in Ireland. O'Barney is the newest member of the Barney family and we are very lucky to have been made his shepherds and shepherdesses!
Our mural in the school garden is coming along very nicely and should be finished in a week or two...we will post a picture soon. We also planted pumpkin seeds in our garden and they should be ready for Hallowe'en!
We have a new member of the Barney family! He arrived on Monday from VT headquarters in America and we think he came with President Obama on Airforce One because we got him on Tuesday and the President was here on Monday! We dressed Irish Barney up and it is a boy. His name is O'Barney and he is looking forward to meeting his brothers AussieBarney, AsiaBarney, EuroBarney, BarneyUK and AmericanBarney.
He is very shy but loves his new clothes. He is already great friends with Professor...our class teddy and Little Irwin from Australia. We have him in the class right now and he is going on his first trip to England with Abby next week even though we only got him yesterday. We are really lucky to have our own Barney - John Joe aged 7
The Newest Member of the Barney Family
Calling all Barney brothers all over the world. The newest member of the Barney family is O'Barney and he lives here in Ireland with us in our classroom. Congratulations AussieBarney, AsiaBarney, EuroBarney, BarneyUK and AmericanBarney...you have a new brother and his name is O'Barney. I would like BarneyUK to know that O'Barney is coming to visit Luton next week on a trip with me and I can't wait to show him around. He is dressed up in a leprechaun jacket and has a big Irish hat! Thank you VT for sending Barney to live with us. Thank 'ewe' from everybody in classroomtravels. We are all really happy. Baa Baa - Abby aged 7
This is 'Professor'. Professor teaches us all about the world. He knows lots of interesting facts about the world. He told us that you will never see a penguin and a polar bear together...except in a zoo! Polar Bears only live in the Arctic and Penguins live in the Antarctic.
Professor is back from a great trip to Holland. Tom took him to visit Amsterdam on a family trip in March and Professor told us all about Amsterdam especially about the canals, wooden clogs, cheese and tulips!
Over Easter, Professor went on a trip to Scotland with Amy. He loved the castle in Edinburgh and the statue of Greyfriar's Bobby!
We go to school in Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside, Co. Waterford in Ireland. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place as we have lovely beaches, big mountains, waterfalls, rivers and woods nearby so there is always plenty to see and do.
Our school is very close to the sea and we have a lovely beach close to our school which we visit when the weather is good.
