Garden Notes: November/ December 2015

It was Junior and Senior Infants time to do some gardening in November. Jane, Vanessa and I decided to make homemade bird feeders with them.

The kids cut oranges in half, scoped out the inside and filled it with bird feed. Using string, they tied them into hoops to place over the branches of the trees. The friendly robin watched on which the children were delighted about!

Valerie and Caroline made Christmas wreaths with 5th & 6th classes in December to bring home. Valerie & Caroline gathered holly from nearby woods & the cuttings of pine from a Christmas tree.  The children enjoyed creating their master pieces over pre-shaped wire and some added decorations to them for some bling!

Happy New Year to all from the Garden Committee and we look forward to more gardening next year…
