On Tuesday 4th February 2020 5th & 6th class participated in their school workshop of the LEAF (Learning about forests) programme run by an Taisce.
This was run by Niamh Ní Dhúill, who taught us so much and planted trees with us in the school garden area. We explored all the products that can be made of wood and we explored our native trees and ‘special guest’ trees that are in Ireland.
Niamh also kindly brought in frog spawn from her own pond that we looked at and showed the rest of the school.
In the afternoon we planted bare root trees in the garden. 6th class were busy digging while 5th class gathered twigs and grass to keep the protective cardboard in place.
We were so lucky that it was a sunny and dry day.
We had a brilliant day and thanks to Niamh for such a super fun and educational workshop.
