Different pupils in Ms. Eaton’s room were busy planting bulbs and watching them grow.
The children in Room 7 3rd class did an experiment on Forces and Energy, exploring the effects of friction on different ramp surfaces. They integrated measuring in Maths using meter sticks to measure the distance the cars travelled on ramps at varioius heights and with various levels of friction using a variety of ramps with sandpaper, carpet, corrugated cardboard and smooth wooden surfaces.
Room 5 planted beans and have observed them growing in their classroom.
Making clay pinch pots in art.
We are learning about natural and manmade materials in Science. Today we made abstract art using materials we found outside or at home.
Room 6 and Mr. Roche attended the Young Scientists Awards. They were showing their experiment all about whether the use of digital games would improve their table’s test score.
They also got to see lots of other experiments and tests.
It was a great day.
With Mr. Lane, the pupils created their own figures using tin foil. Using these figures they were able to shine a torch on one side to create a silhouette.
The pupils then sketched the figures onto the paper.
Well done everyone!
Some ladies from Leinster Cricket Club in Rathmines came into school to each us lots of cricket skills.
It was so much fun.
The pupils in Room 15 were learning about acids and bases and were testing different substances.
We used litmus paper to figure out if a substance was an acid or a base and we used the colour scale to find out its pH level.
The boys and girls wrote their own Gaeilge dramas this week and performed them for the rest of the class.
Well done everyone.
