It is Autumn and the animals are hibernating but the Green Team in Kilruane N.S. has reawakened for another year! We welcome two new members from Mrs Kennedys class who have joined us in our work on the Green Team.

Joanna  our Drama Teacher and Sinéad our Teaching Practise student are busy working on the theme of Biodiversity with all classes in our school.Each class has been learning about our local bog and about the plant life and animal life in the boglands around us through drama,art and general discussion.Every child also has an interesting Drama Journal that is being compiled each week full of wonderful information and illustrations on topics covered.

We have recently bought a bird table, bird boxes and some bird feeders for the school and you can see the fantastic signs that have been put up. We thank Ms.Kirby for her help. We hope our school will be a welcoming and inviting habitat for the birds this Winter. We have filled these and will keep a vigilant check on them over the Winter months.

We have also bought some hedgehog homes which are located beside the Bug Hotel.

The Green Team put together a leaf mound with the fallen Autumn leaves around our school.This will also be a cosy habitat for some little creatures for the Winter.We would also like to invite all classes to take a little wander around these habitats

So we are well prepared for the Winter months and have created many habitats on our school grounds!…..More news next month!
