The Dunmanway Agricultural Show judges were amazed by the wonderful artworks created by our children as part of their Art Competition.
The Heritage in Schools Scheme provides a panel of Heritage Specialists who visit primary schools (in-person or virtually) to help children and their teachers learn about and appreciate their local heritage. The children in Miss Daly’s class enjoyed a wonderful virtual visit from Marina Levitina. The children enjoyed a virtual woodland walk, and learned about a variety of Irish wildflowers and trees of the woods and meadows. The children were amazed to hear plants “sing” through the Music of the Plants biofeedback device and listened to traditional stories about native Irish trees and flowers. Marina then helped the children create some beautiful chalk drawings of the flowers they had learned about.
We really enjoyed a virtual visit from Marina Levitina from the Heritage in Schools programme. Marina Levitina is a herbalist, nature educator, film-maker and artist, and a certified Forest School leader. She loves sharing the magic of wild plants and trees with children, through listening to the Music of the Plants, and through storytelling, drawing and other fun activities that help foster creativity and imagination, while encouraging children to connect with nature and learn about biodiversity.
