Junior and Senior Infant children learned all about hedgehogs and made their own hedgehogs using clay in preparation for the new hedgehog homes that are added to the garden.
First and Second Class children carried out a study on birds and examined the needs of birds. They then made their own bird feeders and brought out the bird house to the garden.
Third and Fourth Class children investigated mini beasts and created a new bug hotel, arranging plant pots, piping, wood, bamboo sticks, pine cones, ivy and lots more foliage for the bugs to feel at home in their new habitat. They also made their own bugs using egg cartons and a selection of art materials.
Fifth and Sixth class had previously painted tyres and they brought them out to the garden so that we can all plant our flowers in them in the coming weeks. They learned about pollination and then drew a selection of Irish flowers.
