Junior Infants have spent the month of October learning all about Autumn. We have been studying the Hedgehog πŸ¦” and learning about 'The Big Sleep' or Hibernation.

We decided to make a Hedgehog Hotel, where Hedgehogs can come and hibernate.

We went to the river bank and collected lots of twigs and dried leaves πŸπŸ‚. We cut out holes in a cardboard box and covered it in a sheet of plastic, to keep it warm. It was important that our Hedgehog Hotel went under a covered tree where it is hidden.

Thanks to the sixth class boys and girls who helped us! 

We hope that we will have some guests over the Winter πŸ¦”πŸ¦”

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is now" - Chinese proverb. 🌿

We read the story 'Little Acorns' which followed the journey of the little acorn when he fell off the oak tree.🌰

We learned all about the Life Cycle of an Oak tree and how it will take 20 years for one to be fully grown! 

To celebrate Tree Day, each group planted an acorn. We put them in the School Polytunnel where they will be nice and warm and we will water them every day. 

We will have to check back in 20 years time! 🌳
