Even though we are apart, I think it’s important that we stay in touch! I will be making some videos, posting photos and suggesting activities over the next while. I want to keep you up to date on what is happening with your plants and suggest some nature and art tasks for you to do, if you like.

Our school is special because it’s very creative. It’s creative because we all get to recycle things when we’re making art so we can have a better environment. Our school is a great place to learn because the teachers are very kind.Lotte and Jane, 3rd class

Birdwatching in Kilshanroe
All of the children are observing birds this term. We have bird identification charts on the windows, as well as a tally chart in the older children’s classrooms. We have spotted lots of different types of birds so far, and are keen to attract the birds we have not seen. Many thanks to the parents and guardians who have donated bird food and birdhouses.
Some of the children went to great trouble to paint and decorate birdhouses – Gavin made this one himself and Ava’s is beautifully decorated
Many thanks to the parents and guardians who sent in bird seed, suet balls, feeders and even binoculars! Below is a wonderful book of nature poetry for children.
School polytunnel makeover!
Over the Christmas holidays, the VanStaden family kindly painted our poly tunnel. It is now a beautiful multicoloured structure and a very welcome addition to our fabulous garden. We will grow tomatoes and other Mediterranean herbs and vegetables in it, later in the year. A huge thanks to Henric, Jordan, Kayla and Ruby for their help.
