We were delighted to be awarded The Active School Flag that recognises Togher N.S. as an Active School. The Active School Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. During our Christmas Celebrations we raised our Active School Flag and The Health Promoting School Flag we were awarded earlier in the year.
The children in 5th and 6th opened the boxes of our new EV3 Robotics and Coding equipment. As a School Excellence – Digital School our children have a wonderful opportunity to develop their STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) ability and as a “Hands on Minds on” school these kits perfectly enable our children to explore robotics and coding.
The children in 4th, 5th and 6th were each given a country playing in the Rugby World Cup Finals to research for a Geography Project. The children really enjoyed supporting their allocated country during the tournament. Of course the child with South Africa was delighted! The children also enjoyed presenting their projects to the children in other classes.
The children in our First and Second Classes have been busy exploring our local habitats. As well as looking beautiful, berries, fruits, nuts and cones contain the seeds of a plant and are therefore crucial for the cycle of life. Seed dispersal was discussed and samples were collected. These samples were displayed by the children in their lovely autumn nature booklets.
The children were delighted to identify a wide variety of mini-beasts in our local stream as they are a sign of healthy and clean water. It was now time for the science bit! Stephanie from the Heritage Council showed the children how to test our water samples with litmus paper. Our visual observations were confirmed when these tests showed minimal traces of nitrates.
