Springtime on the Farm


Juniors and Seniors were delighted to welcome back a former pupil today as we explore the theme of Springtime on the Farm. Brendan brought his New Holland tractor for a hands-on lesson with the boys and girls. He gave each one of us a bag of barley and explained how it is sown. He gave us lots of insights into his work as a farmer and remembered fondly his time in Junior Infants many years ago when he drove his pretend tractor around the yard at playtime!
