Brigit's Garden

On the 19th October, our class took a trip to Brigit's garden in Roscahill. We travelled there by bus, it was very exciting!
Our guide was called Dolores, and she let us explore the woods, we looked for leaves and berries, and searched for nuts, We listened for birds, and heard the robin and bluetit. We examined mini-beasts such as woodlouse, slugs and snails, and other insects.
We played with a parachute inside the crannog, and there we also coloured leaves and made our very own tree to bring home with us to our classroom.
They had a stone clock, and a lovely play area with wicker basket swings, and logs to climb.
At the end of the day, we had a parade for the Queen of the Autumn, we all got shakers to shake to the beat of the drum. And we followed the Queen to the throne.
We had to say goodbye to Brigit's Garden, and go back on the bus, we were all tired, some people even fell asleep...
Here are some pictures from our trip, and there are more running along the side of the site. So many special memories...
