Leaf Printing in Rang 4

Fourth class went to the Bushmount one day. The day before we went to Bushmount we were talking about leaves and trees. The teacher divided us up into groups of three. We split up and found lots and lots of leaves. Ben found an acorn and we found a lot of conkers. It was a really fun cool day there. We came back and we sat in our groups in the classroom. We were lucky with what we found. My friend Ben found the conker from the horse chestnut tree so he kept it. We made these little packets and put the conkers inside and stuck the leaves on paper and named the leaves. It was a very good day. By Logan Farrell Kelliher
