Have a little sing song...

Firstly I'm sorry it has been two weeks since my last post I was absent last week and so had nothing TY to blog about.

This week has been a busy one in the wonderful land of TY, not that that is anything new. We began the week with much discussion on what we were going to do in each of our subjects for our end of TY Night on the 27th of May. By the looks of it, it will be a night of projects, drama and music.
In English we will all be performing some of our own written plays which are based on classic fairy tales. We have written both alternate endings to the tales, as well as totally re-writing them altogether.
In French, my own personal project will be on the wines and cheeses of France. This will include the top ten wines and cheeses, along with where they can be found in Ireland for purchase. I also will include how wine and cheese is produced in France, along with what wines go with what foods.

For our other subjects we are not 100% decided on what we will be doing to showcase our years work. For music though, we are going to do a TY group performance of Pompeii by Bastille. Speaking of music, we have recently been working on an entry for an Irish competition in which we must write a song in Irish based on an Irish proverb or "seanfhocal" as it is in Irish. A group of four girls wrote our song based on the proverb "Níl saoi gan locht" which basically means, "nobody's perfect". They then put it to the music of "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" by the Script. It sounds amazing and the lyrics are great, we recorded it both on video, and for audio to be submitted next week. (Hope we do well!)

In other unrelated random TY news, the frenzy has begun. With news quickly spreading about people and whether or not they got their subjects choices or not, people are going into mad panic and worrying like crazy. We are all hoping not to get called upon.... (eeek)
