A visit from a scientist to Room 2

Science Week 2014

We had a visit from a scientist today who works in UCD. He is Ben’s dad Tom. Tom came to talk to us about electricity. We had lots of fun learning about conductors and insulators. We worked in groups and investigated what items were good conductors and what were good insulators of electricity. We had lots of fun for science week. Thank you Tom and thank you Ben for organising it.

Room 2 had lots of fun in PE.

We made up our own dances to pop music.

We enjoyed working together.

Room 4 – Science Week activities

For Science week, Room 4 conducted a minibeast hunt in the Millennium Playground. We looked at the different habitats in the school environment and using pooters and magnifying glasses, we were then able to examine and classify the various minibeasts that we found. We never knew that so many different creatures lived in our school environment!

String telephones in Room 15

The boys and girls in Room 15 were learning all about sound and how it travels through different objects.

We made string telephones and investigated whether sound travelled through the string.

Some pupils from Notre Dame university in America came to teach some of the senior girls some basketball skills.

It was great fun.
