The three second classes went for a walk to St. Enda’s park for National Tree day.
We are learning all about trees and the seasons in 2nd class. We went for a walk and looked at the trees in St. Enda’s park. We also saw berries in the brambles and holly. We saw sycamore leaves and the seeds are called helicopters or sycamore seeds. We found 8 things on our list. It was my birthday on Tree Day. The weather was cloudy but warm. I really liked the day as a birthday treat.

We had a fantastic day out and about exploring and appreciating the autumnal weather and trees. National Tree Day was on the 6th October.
We did a scavenger hunt. We collected leaves and seeds from the trees. We collected leaves and seeds from the trees. As we found them we ticked them off on our list. If we didn’t know the name of the leaves we checked our leaf identifier page.
We saw a horse chestnut tree and some conkers! est
