Heritage in Schools update
The Heritage in Schools website has been updated during the summer months with lots of useful resources and activity ideas. The Resource section is now bursting with materials, which are easily located in specific pages for wildlife, archaeology, built heritage etc.
Éanna ní Lamhna's Wild Things worksheets, designed to accompany the ever-popular teacher’s book, are now available to download and provide an abundance of material for use in the classroom. Exercises are divided into class groups from the simplest, such as counting for junior infants, to stimulating debates and field studies for older children.
Both teachers and parents will find lots of children's outdoor activity ideas including Bird Food Bingo, Leaf Hunting and Wild-Day Out. The site is also open to teachers, parents and heritage specialists to upload their own activities and resources.
