Outdoor creativity

Second class have really enjoyed exploring outdoors this month. We spent lots of time in the woodland area of our school. The children enjoyed making mini huts and rafts in their pods.

Junior Infants have been busy creating beautiful art. They made scarecrows and painted autumn trees. They also painted lovely self portraits.
