This website was recommended to us:
We like all the ideas for projects on it.
You can find them HERE
For example: Build a Bird Feeder,
Carry out a Bird Survey
Build a Bug House
Create A Wildflower Patch.
There are lots of great ideas there.
What a great website!
‘Spring Alive is an international project to encourage children’s interest in nature and the conservation of migratory birds and to get them to take action for birds and other wildlife…’
There are games and colouring activities on the website too. Click HERE to see.
Take a look at the artwork that 2nd Class Room 19 did!
They drew peacocks using oil pastels on coloured paper.
You can see some fabulous owls that this class did here.
Eric Dempsey came to talk to us about birds. We learned a lot. He taught us about swallows and other birds.
We learned that swallows can find their way all the way from Ireland to North Africa with a brain the size of a pea!
You can read more about swallows and other birds on the Bird Watch Ireland website.
These are birds that died out in Ireland.
White-tailed or sea eagle
What a pity they died out. We would love to see them in real life.
Why do you think they became extinct in Ireland?
The largest creatures that we see
in the playground are humans.
Dogs are not allowed in the school grounds,
but sometimes, they wait at the gate.
The largest wild creatures in the yard are
the big, black crows that wait
to grab a sandwich that has been dropped.
They seem to know it is lunch time
and gather on the roofs
looking down at us.
These are the largest wild creatures
that we see in the yard.
