Before the mid-term break, our class did a Nature Walk along Seafield Road, to investigate Sycamore and Ash trees near the school. We collected leaves and seeds.  The class also did bark and leaf rubbings.

The class used the school laptops to research the Ash tree, using the website https://treecouncil.ie/project/ash/

In November, we will continue our tree study by researching the Ash, using http://www.askaboutireland.ie/learning-zone/primary-students/1st-+-2nd-class/1st-2nd-class-environment/leafy-lovelies/trees/native-trees/ash/index.xml

We’ll study the Sycamore on http://www.askaboutireland.ie/learning-zone/primary-students/5th-+-6th-class/5th-+-6th-class-environme/leafy-lovelies/trees/non-native-trees/sycamore/index.xml
