Summer Sunflowers

Summer sunflowers were planted last week in the infant room. We cannot wait to see them grow.

Flowers, flowers everywhere.

Biodiversity Action Day

We had a great time yesterday celebrating Biodiversity Action Day. The children in the senior room went on a trip to Cloondroon Lake with the naturalist Gordon D’Arcy. The children in the junior and middle room went on a spring flower hunt, sowed cress and runner beans, furnished and bug hotel and we finished off the day with a quiz. 

Here is Gordon Darcy’s website.

Where are you Mr Robin?

The children in the junior room went on a hunt for the robin today. They had a toy robin that emits the call of the robin. They were hoping to hear a robin call back. I think it was too cold today for the poor robin.
