Our Holy Island expedition

15th January 2024

This 'expedition' supports our learning in our current theme of 'Ice Explorers' - the children planned the expedition first, choosing a suitable map and plotting a route to Emmanuel Head. 

We began the week on Monday when we went on our ‘expedition’ to Holy Island.  Despite the cold, the children were fantastic.  Luckily they were wrapped up warm as we walked first to the bird hide by the Lough and then on towards Emmanuel Head.  We were lucky enough to see deer in the tussocks on the way as well as various birds, including swans on the Lough.  Mrs Stiansen has set up our school wildlife camera near there in the hopes of capturing more activity and perhaps even a glimpse of the otters.
