SCIENCE WEEK 5TH & 6TH CLASS

The children in 5th & 6th class learned about famous scientists during science week. They learned about the inventions of Thomas Edison (light bulb) Percy Shaw (reflectors on the road called cats eyes) Robert Boyle (flames need air) Frances Rynde (the syringe) and Sr. Francis Beaufort from Navan (wind speed).

The Digestive System was studied by the children and the function of the Mouth, Oesophagus, Stomach, Liver, Pancreas, Large and Small Intestines was explored.

The life cycle of the fish was aso studied. Children found this very intersting to research and loved looking at the differences between the fish.

Our "NO Smoking" projects were examined and discussed. Each child presented their project in a poster and explained the dangers of smoking. We examined warning signs on cigarette packets and watched an interesting film about the contents of cigarettes. All of the above certainly turned them off smoking. An oath was signed by each child promising that they would never smoke.
