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.

SCIENCE WEEK 3RD & 4TH CLASS

Third and Fourth class had great fun exploring magnetism during Science week. We divided into groups and explored and tested whether objects were magnetic or not. Some of the results really suprised us.

We are also looking forward to welcoming engineer Tom King to our class next week. He is going to speak to us about his job and all the different types of engineering that exitsts. We can't wait !

SCIENCE WEEK 1ST & 2ND CLASS

In first and second class we were learning about Heat. We talked about natural and man-made heat sources. We talked about how heat is measured. We investigated how a thermometer works by measuring the temperature inside and outside as well as putting a thermometer in hot and cold water. We then recorded the results in our copies.

SCIENCE WEEK INFANT ROOM

The Infants had great fun experimenting with water and what will soak up water and what won't. First we talked about what we thought might happen and then we carried out experiments to see if our predictions were correct. There was lots of laughter and fun.
