Spring Walk

We went on a Spring walk especially to see some bridges in our area.
Can you figure out where this bridge is?
That's right, it is on Ballyloughane Road.
We had a good look at the different shapes we could see (triangles, diamonds, rectangles, semi-ciricle, circles, cylinders and cuboids).  Can you spot each of them in these pictures?
We looked at various materials around us, and we had a good look at the shapes and materials in the bridge and its surroundings.
This is a railway bridge.  The railway line runs on top of the bridge and cars and pedestrians pass underneath.
We also found a small bridge with a little tunnel.  We think this is to allow animals and water to pass safely under the railway.  We were horrified to see all the litter that has collected there.
We loved the circular pump and had fun turning it clockwise and anti-clockwise.
The houses nearby are so interesting.. We found bungalows, two story and three story houses.  We saw detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.  We even saw a thatched cottage!
We also saw some really interesting shaped windows (pentagon and semi-circular).
It is so great to go to school in Renmore.  It is such an interesting place to live!
