Nature Walk

We’re lucky in Ballyneale school to be able to walk out the front gate and be amongst beautiful rural countryside. Infants and third and fourth class took part in a nature walk through the village and down a local boithrín and into a family’s field today. We looked out for plants in the hedgerows from bindweed to forget-me-nots, dandelions to docks. We spotted interesting creepy crawlies. After a picnic in the local family’s field we set off back to the school. On the way back Ms. Fogarty gave us a mini history lesson of the village. To finish the day the children used plants they collected to make some nature art. A busy outdoor day today!
