We made blackberry jam
First we picked lots and lots of blackberries and washed them.
Then we boiled the berries to make pulp. We pressed the pulp through a sieve to make juice.
Next we boiled the juice and added sugar
We had to check to see if the boiled juice had set into jam.
After the jam had set properly, we put it into jars that we had collected.
Finally we enjoyed eating our jam with bread and butter. Yum!
We visited Glendalough to celebrate National Tree Day
The children did orienteering to complete a quiz. Using a map the children had to find different trees. On each tree there was another question.
This old church is nearly a thousand years old
