Second class had a fantastic field trip last week to the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve. We learned all about our native birds and the excellent work the reserve is doing, as well as some interesting facts about birds of prey further afield. We got to climb the lookout tower and spot some of the birds with the telescope and binoculars. We then had some fun activities and our packed lunch. Before returning to school we made a pit stop at O’Hanrahan station in town where we studied the architecture and uses of the building. This consolidated some of our learning from our History lessons on the evolution of rail transport and the history of Wexford town. We also did a fun questionnaire and some maths timetable work! Later that week we made our own architectural impressions of the railway station.
