Grass Heads

 

This Green School project is so simple and it provides exciting results in about a week. G4 loved watching their grasshead sprout hair and keep growing. When it’s really long, they can trim it like a barber.

The children used plastic cups and planted grass seeds in compost  in order to grow their Grass Heads. They added some odd facial features to finish them off!

Edmund Rice Ceremony

We went down to the hall to learn about Edmund Rice. Edmund Rice is called ‘Blessed Edmund Rice’ because he is one step away from being a saint. It was very interesting to learn about this good man. By Peter and Warren.
