Eco Safari Description

Season of the visit: Spring

Getting was simple. All we had to go up the stairs and go out into the yard.

2nd class went out for some fresh air to look at the trees. Normally we do this in Autumn when it is easier to identify the trees. We were learning about native trees and non native trees in our S.E.S.E so we anted to see what native trees we have. We saw a mixture of native and non native trees: We have a birch tree, a horse chestnut tree and a cherry blossom tree. Do you know which tree is native to Ireland?..... It's the birch tree.
Look at some of our photos of our work below.
