Room 12 – learning about birds

Room 12 are learning about the winter birds that are living in Dublin City. We went on a nature walk to the canal to take a tally of the various kinds of birds we saw.

Science Week in Room 9

Room 9 were very busy for Science Week! We hosted a Science Fair for 4th, 5th & 6th classes showing them some very interesting experiments. We also had a visit from Rachel’s mum, Emma who is a professor in Science in Trinity College! We learned about the eye and experimented with some dry ice too – it was really good fun!

Room 11 – learning about food in the past

Room 11 have been learning about food from long ago and how they produced it all. We learned how to make butter! We discovered what buttermilk was and how it could be used. It was yum!

Science Week fun in Room 2

The boys and girls in Room 2 had lots of fun learning about science with some cool experiments.

Science week fun in Room 14

All of the pupils in Room 14 were very busy during science week running their science fair for the rest of the pupils in the school.

A special visitor in Room 15

The pupils were very lucky today as Emma (Kate’s mother) came in to the class to tell us lots of science facts.

We learned all about the eye and how it works.

We also learned about dry ice and carbon dioxide.

We learned so so many new things from a real scientist. It was fascinating!

Thanks so much to Emma for coming in to Room 15!

Science fair fun

Room 15 went to 3 different science fairs this week to celebrate science week.

Ms. O’ Shea’s class (Room 17), Ms. Doherty’s class (Room 9) and Mr. Coghlan’s class (Room 5) all hosted wonderful, interesting science fairs in their rooms.

We were asked some tricky scientific questions and were shown some amazing experiments on our visits.

Thanks so much for all the hard work from all the classes and teachers.

Science is so fun!
