Our Nature Walk
We took a walk around the school garden. We heard birds, cars, children and planes. We looked at the school garden and walked by the hedgerow. We collected leaves that we looked at back in the classroom. We will use them in an exciting activity in Art next week!
Our Nature Box
We have a nature box in our classroom. It has lots of interesting things in it but we look forward to adding to it during autumn.
We have learned all about Tom Crean. He was an explorer from Kerry. We read a story called Tom Crean's Rabbit.
Tree Day 4th October
Thursday the 4th of October was National Tree Day. We did lots of fun activities, including a wordsearch, drawings and looking at trees. We signed a Tree Pledge to look after trees on www.treeday.ie as a reward we will be sent a tree in the post! We can't wait to receive it.
Finn was lucky enough to have a hedgehog visit his garden He brought in some amazing photos to show us all. Doesn't it look cute?!
Education in the Past
Educate Together is 40 years old this year. We have been looking at schools and education in Ireland. Here is a video from RTE from the 1960s - what do you think?!
