Ireland’s Boglands

In SESE, our topic for the month has been Boglands. We started by learning how bogs were formed and examining the types of bog we have in Ireland, particularly blanket bogs which can be commonly found in Clare.

More recently we used the Chromebooks to research the history and role of Bord Na Móna. In the past week we have examined the process of cutting and saving turf and how this has changed over time.

We even took to the school yard to practice the art of footing turf!
