Calling all Junior Explorers!

Autumn is here, it’s getting colder and the leaves are changing colour. It’s time to get out and explore!

Get your class together and, with your teacher, explore the natural environment of your school grounds or local neighbourhood.

Nature on your doorstep at Tymon North Park

Spot the signs of the changing season and discover the fun and adventure of nature.

Investigate why leaves change colour, which animals are storing food, which birds are leaving for warmer climates, why acorns are falling from trees . . . and so much more! Record your findings and, with your teacher, create a colourful photo collage of your Autumn Adventure.

Folens love to support initiatives that help children to develop their inquisitive natures.
This fun activity is in line with the Primary SESE Curriculum.
Send your class photo collage to The Echo and you could win a €200 voucher for your classroom!
