In school we are learning all about the lifecycle of a chicken. We are using our incubator to give the children the experience of seeing chick hatch out. The boys and girls are great at keeping an eye on the temperature of the incubator and making sure that the water is topped up regulary. Thanks a million Kevin for supplying us with the eggs and answering lots of questions from the boys and girls.
This week the boys and girls were learning all about the different types of birds that visit our garden. We talked about how they build their nests and what they use to build them. The children got the opportunity to hold some old birds nests and look at all the work that is put into building them. As it is nearly Easter we made our own birds nests out of chocolate and put some eggs and a chick into our nest. The boys and girls did a super job. Well done!
Broughall NS was delighted to welcome two little visitors to our school yesterday. With the lambing season in full swing, two baby lambs visited the boys and girls of Broughall NS. The boys and girls got the opportunity to feed and embrace the recently new born lambs. It was lovely to see the children engage in such a gentle, caring manner with the two lambs. Míle buíochas to 'Feirmeoir Michael' for bringing the lambs to our school.
As part of 'Wellness Week' the boys and girls picked a secret friend for the week. Each child picked a child's name out of a box and the boy/girl that they picked was their secret friend. They then had to be a good friend to this person and be extra kind to them.
Last week was 'Wellness Week' in our school. Children took part in many different activities to make them feel good about themselves and others. The boys and girls favourite day was definitely Feel Good Friday where pupils had a non uniform day and we ordered pizza for our lunch.
In school we have been learning all about how to look after animals. The boys and girls were delighted to put what they had learned into practice by taking care of two pet rabbits for the week.
We had a busy week in school this week. The boys and girls enjoyed taking part in many different science activities to celebrate Science Week.
Today the boys and girls were encouraged to get creative. We recycled household items and made them into cool robots. The boys and girls enjoyed making their robots and they were very proud of their finished art work.
Check out the videos below to see the boys and girls of Broghall NS giving it their all as they disco dance to some top Halloween tunes!
On the 21st of October we visited a local pumpkin patch. Many thanks to Alan Feighery for giving the boys and girls of Broughall NS the opportunity of picking out their own pumpkins from his pumpkin patch.
