Exploring our School Garden with Dave – 2nd class

Exploring our School Garden with Dale

Second class were so lucky to have Dale from ‘Heritage in Schools’ in the class for the day. During his visit we enjoyed doing bark rubbings on the different trees in our school garden. He shook the branches and we examined what minibeasts fell from the tree. We used magnifying glasses to spot spiders, centipedes, woodlice and lots more! We looked at all the colourful flowers and observed bees, wasps and hoverflies.

It’s wonderful to recognize what is growing and living all around Ballyraine NS. Dale even gave us lots of information about dinosaurs and fossils too! We learnt so many cool facts.
