Scoil Bhride Gardening News

Here in Scoil  Bhride we are very busy gardening . We have started to plant our seeds. First we had to prepare the soil . We pulled the weeds out. We dug the soil and put in the cow manure. Carefully , we raked the soil so it would be easier to plant the seeds . We made a shallow line to plant the seeds in. They were planted 15 – 20 cm   apart  . Our groups planted a wide variety  of vegetables such as  French beans ,  carrots , lettuce , broccoli and shallots.  We planted wild garlic and transplanted the strawberries . We also planted seeds in the polytunnel.

We hope the seeds will grow well and that we will have a good supply of vegetables for the summer .

Last week we had a visit from the Road Safety Authority who taught us and reminded us of some very important pedestrian and cycling safety tips. We  had great fun role playing and also learned some valuable lessons to keep us safe on the road.  Here is a summary of what we learned.

Pedestrian Safety:

  • Stop, look and listen
  • Don’t try to cross the road between parked cars
  • If possible, cross at a pedestrian crossing or traffic lights
  • Never cross at a bend
  • If there is a footpath use it
  • If there is no footpath, walk/run/jog on the right hand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic and keeping as close as possible to the side of the road
  • Walk no more than two abreast and if the road is narrow or there is heavy traffic, walk in single file
  • Always wear a pair of reflective armbands, high-visibility belt or other reflective or fluorescent clothing which will help you to be seen from a distance

Cycling Safety:

  • Never cycle in the dark without adequate lighting – white for front, red for rear
  • Always wear luminous clothing such as hi-vis vests, fluorscent armbands and reflective belts so that other road users can see you
  • Wear a helmet
  • Make sure you keep to the left. Always look behind and give the proper signal before moving off, changing lanes or making a turn
  • Maintain your bike properly – in particular, your brakes should work properly and your tyres should be inflated to the right pressure and be in good condition


5th class Easter baskets and bunnies!


This week 5th class weaved baskets out of paper.We then made colourful 3D bunnies by stuffing them with newspaper. Then we put the bunnies into our beautiful baskets. We found the weaving challenging but they turned out fantastic.
