Garden Show

Eco EventsPosted by Mrs Allen Wed, May 02, 2018 02:41PM

Every year there is a Garden Show in Antrim Castle Gardens. This year it is on from 4th - 6th May. Every year we make a scarecrow for Scarecrowland. This is usually at the main entrance and the scarecrows which come from many integrated schools form a line along the paths. In 2012 Rosie was the best in the show. In 2011 Marigold won first prize as well as Bottle Betty. Wendy and Fleur were both Highly commended.

This year the children made Bird Man. Thanks to all who contributed something for the scarecrow. Lets hope he wins a prize!



The Polytunnel

Primary One had a great time yesterday popping in and out to see what stage the polytunnel was at. We watched the men at different times of the day to see what stage they were at. Dean was the boss and he told us all sorts of useful information about how the tunnel was made and what we could plant in the Planters. He told us to remember to soak the peas overnight so they grow more quickly and to keep the lettuce seeds in the fridge before planting!!

He explained how the galvanized steel hoops were made in his engineering firm and told Sammy that he would need to cover the base in concrete and make a path to the tunnel.

We are looking forward to taking our turn in the tunnel to plant some vegetables or fruit.

Thanks again to Dean and his team.

On Friday 28th February Round Tower IPS turned yellow. Each child made a daffodil to display around the school. We had lots of fun completing yellow activities such as:
-Making lemon jelly
-Circle time
-Acrostic poems
-Painting daffodils

We had lots of fun raising money for a very good cause!

We were very lucky to have Jo from the RSPB in school on Friday 21st February. The P7's had lots of fun learning about different birds.

The RSPB have also installed a nest box with a camera, so we are looking forward to keeping a closer eye on the birds.
