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!

Learning about Jackson Pollock

In Room 15, our Artist of the Month for November is Jackson Pollock.

This artist is known for his expressionism painting and we took inspiration from his work.

They look great!

Does it tessellate???

Room 15 were learning all about 2-D shapes.

We learned about tessellation – that means shapes closely fitted together, in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping.

We then investigated whether different 2-D shapes tessellated.

 

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!

Room 11 – fun at the science fair

To celebrate science week Room 11 had a great time enjoying all the wonderful science experiments in room 14.

We got to learn how to make slime, playdough, periscopes and a mini volcano!

Thanks to room 14!

De Le Salle soccer with 4th class

The boys and girls in 4th class are very lucky as some past pupils of St. Louis came back to our school from De Le Salle secondary school and were teaching them soccer skills.

It was so much fun and we are looking forward to next week already!

Team Hope shoe box appeal 2018

St. Louis was very happy to take part in the Team Hope Shoe box appeal.

The shoe boxes were filled with lots of different toys and clothes for boys and girls around the world who are less fortunate than us.

WOW – look how many boxes we filled to donate to others this Christmas??!!

Well done everyone who donated!

Science fun in Room 14

In room 14 we have been learning all about light, we even made our own periscopes.
