Take a look at these river birds Ms. Horan found! If you click on each you will find out their name and the sound they make! Very cool!

Let’s get creative with nature!

Hi everyone! Check out the PowerPoint below of the beautiful pictures taken by Ms. Brennan whilst out for a walk. She spotted loads of different plants and flowers and also some lovely swans! Ms. Horan had the idea to practise your Mindful Square Breathing whilst looking at these lovely images!

Below are some ideas for what you could make with things you find in nature! 

Here’s a Woodland Fairy made from leaves.

Here are other ideas for designs you could make with leaves!

These simple designs can be made with twigs and flowers!
