We have been dancing for four weeks now. We do Irish dancing. It is great fun. Our dancing teacher is called Sue. She is a brilliant dancer and was in the All Ireland dancing competition last week. She came first in the first round. We now know the Walls of Limerick, the 3 hand reel and the easy reel. Check out our latest updated video!

Just a short post this week to point out a few good websites with Halloween games and activities. Don’t forget this list of activities from last week for things to do out and about over the midterm

  • 1Halloween has lots of ideas for costumes and decorations. They also have plenty of colouring and activity pages, along with a few simple games.
  • PBS Kids is a nice one with lots of activities for younger children
  • Scoilnet is an Irish educational website with lots of activities for students. This one is more suited to senior classes (3rd class up) (more…)

We just loved The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me. Roald Dahl is our favourite! We hope you like Dylan’s interview of us. It is our favourite podcast so far! Let us know what you think!

Next week, schools are closed for midterm! This week’s Wednesday for Parents focuses on ideas for entertainment, here in Bray, around County Wicklow and a few further afield. Some events may need to be booked early.

In no particular order, our top recommendations are:

  • Sealife! Sealife have a Scary Fish Festival on next week with zombie pirate trick or treating, design a ‘Frankenfish’ competition, facepainting and a pirate quiz trail! If you can, it’s well worth booking online as you can save up to €14 on family tickets. It’s €29 to book online for a family of 2 adults and 2 children, but €43 if you book on the day. More information here!
  • The Mermaid! The Mermaid have a showing of Monster’s University on Tuesday 29th October. Tickets cost €5 each and information can be found here.
  • Kilruddery have a number of creative events on – for €20, you can use materials to build a scarecrow and be in with a chance to win a prize. For €5 you can choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, draw a design and leave it with the master carver to be collected later. More information here.
  • Wicklow Gaol go all out for Halloween and while some of the activities are for adults only (and the staff of Peter’s can vouch for the creepiness of these events!), there are a number of family activities, such as treasure hunts, facepainting and a ‘terrifying touch tour’ – intrigued? Check out their calendar here! Family tickets seem to run at €19 each (2 adults/3 children) for each event. (more…)
