On Thursday the 4th of October 2018 the three 2nd classes travelled by bus to the National Botanic Gardens for Tree Day.
We were brought around by two tour guides and had so much fun! Michelle brought us to see an elm tree and the children’s garden where we created leaf and bark rubbings. We learned about the rings of the tree, and did a quiz based on seeds. Ms. Mc Mullen and Ms. McGrane were given an apple each that had been grown in the garden. They were delicious!
We visited the wild Ireland section of the gardens and saw some oak trees and a hawthorn tree where Michelle told us tales of how the fairies granted wishes to those who tied ribbons onto the tree. We collected leaves and also saw some squirrels collecting food for hibernation.
