Yesterday we went to Scarriff library. We were listening to Wayne O Connor. He was talking to us about David Walliams. He also told us two stories, one was about when he was small when he was going to school. That story was very funny. Then he told us a story called Grizenda. Grizenda was about a girl who attended a posh school for children with extremely wealthy parents but she wasnt posh at all. She played tricks on the posh people. It was really funny. We got certificates afterwards for reading books.

When we were out picking blackberries for jam. I found some ash tree seeds. I took some of the seeds off so I could show some people at school. We discovered that they were called Ash keys. They looked a bit like helicopters from the sicamore tree.
