Our Clay Pets

For art we made clay pets ... cats, dogs, .... a lion!!!! It took more than one art lesson to complete the project. Patience is a virtue!!!

Our Trip to Coole Park

Last Thursday, thanks to Ms. Hardiman we visited Coole Park outside Gort as part of our Green school's programme for this year concerning Biodiversity. To find out more about Coole Park please click on the following link:

A Beech tree's bark is soft and smooth so it's easy to identify.

Fungus and insects are nature's recyclers. They break down dead material
which can then be used to feed living plants and animals.

Mushrooms are a type of fungus. 

Off on our nature hunt. 

One of our nature hunt groups with their findings.

Oak leaves, like the ones found on our oak tree inside our schools's front gate.

The park ranger even let us peek at the badger's sett (a badger's home). We had to be really quite.
Badgers are nocturnal creatures so they we all asleep. There are eleven setts in total in this one area. 

Here's a badger's sett up close.

How many people did it take to get around the bough of this tree?
