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.  

You could: 
- 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: seamusheaneyhome@midulstercouncil.org we would love to see them.
