September 2018

1st and 2nd class have enjoyed learning about the different types of trees that grow in Ireland and how they change during each season. They studied the animals that live in the trees such as squirrels and birds. The class particularly loved going to Corkagh Park where they identifed some trees and picked leaves and berries. They then created some colourful leaf rubbings from the leaves collected on the walk.

They are also having fun listening to Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. We began reading the story this month to celebrate Roald Dahl day on the 13th September. Each child has created a fact profile for Mr. Fox.
