We made clay Hedgehogs and gathered some leaves & twigs to build them a hibernation nest for winter. They’ll be lovely and snug in their new home until Spring!

Our class were delighted to have a visit from Tessa’s mom Aisling last Friday. Aisling is a nutrionist and she spoke to us about healthy eating and how different foods can help us stay healthy. She made a delicious green juice, jammed packed with lots of vegetables and fruit. Aisling also brought in some dough (made with cacao and lots of other healthy ingredients) so we could roll our own healthy treats.
As part of SESE the three second classes along with Jamie-Lee, Teresa, Deirdre, Daire and Andrea went on a hike up Tara Hill which is a wooded hill near the coastline that can be seen from many parts of Northeast Wexford. We were fortunate to have a crisp, dry and clear day for our trip and everyone was well prepared! A great day was had exploring in nature, admiring the stunning views, tree-hugging and of course some picnic-pit stops to refuel! We (almost 70 GETNSers!) reached the cairn at the summit in good time with lots of first-timers vowing to go again in future – we look forward to hearing about your hillwalking adventures and are glad you all had a wonderful day!
As part of SESE recently we had been learning about recycling and inventors – we decided to make our own inventions from recyclable materials. Lots of creative results – a jetpack, rockets, an underwater world, a camera, a truck, a bedroom, a house, lanterns, fairies, a cricket bat, an owl and an owl bird-feeder and many more on display at our classroom. Well done second class on a great effort and presentation today
