Scoodoos have arrived at St Attracta’s national School in Charlestown Co. Mayo!

Last December Doodoo visited St Attracta’s to do a work shop with first and second classes. Doodoo had great fun meeting all the children and watching them make pots from newspaper and then sowing broad bean seeds in organic peat-free compost.

While Doodoo was at the school the children asked lots of questions about Scoodoos and they knew lots about trees too. Doodoo was very impressed that the children knew that trees help the environment by cleaning the air. Lots of fruits that we eat also come from trees, such as;

  • PEARS

  • APPLES

  • PLUMS

  • CHERRIES

  • PEACHES

  • ORANGES

 

And they knew that oranges do not grow in Ireland because it is too cold.

Doodoo visited St Attractas national School in December 2013 for a paper pot and seed sowing workshop.

Doodoo had such fun when visiting the school and was so excited when he told other Scoodoo friends about the visit. The Scoodoos thought that is sounded so great that they decided to go and visit St Attracta’s National School and help the children to learn lots more about trees and nature.

 

Here are some pictures of the Scoodoos in the grounds of St Attracta’s School and you can find out their names too.

 

We Scoodoos live in trees and every tree has a Scoodoo. Scoodoos help protect trees. Scoodoos have been around for a very, very long time, as long as there have been trees. Not many people have seen Scoodoos until now, because we have been very shy. Scoodoos have been happy living in the trees and enjoying the company of all the animals and birds that live in trees and forests.

But recently we have been worried. Scoodoos see that there are less trees in the world and we are worried about climate change. So now we have decided to show ourselves more often and meet with people to help them learn about how important trees are to the world. Thats why Scoodoos are visiting St Attracta’s School in Charlestown, because we know that the children there like trees and that they care about the environemnt too.
