At home Educational Activities
Need some educational activities for your children while at home?
Over the next few weeks, Seamus Heaney HomePlace will be posting literacy-based activities that can be done at home. Please feel free to share these posts with friends, parents, teachers and anyone else that may find them useful.
Our second literacy-based activity is inspired by Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘Blackberry-Picking’.
In the poem ‘Blackberry-Picking’, Seamus Heaney describes going on an adventure to pick blackberries.
We have lots of different types of wild plants growing in our area. Choose a wild plant that grows nearby and create a fact file on it.
- use a search engine
- ask around
- explore hedgerows nearby
- use this website to get you started: http://www.habitas.org.uk/flora/index.html
You can find a template for your fact file here.
Post your fact file to our Facebook page HERE or email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org we would love to see them.
