Technology and coding – Technology

The pupils in Room 6 used Python to code the inputs and outputs of a raspberry Pi to record light levels using an LDR (light detecting resistor) and capacitor.

The light levels were recorded in Python and the code turned on and off an LED depending on the readings on the light sensor.

Powerpoints in Room 15 – Technology

The pupils in Room 15 were learning how to create their own PowerPoint presentations to share their learning on The Burren, Co. Clare.



Making paper planes in Room 17 – Maths and forces and energy

The pupils in Room 17 designed their own paper planes while learning about forces and energy. They used different designs to investigate how far the plane would travel.

They recorded the data on tables and used metre sticks and trundle wheels to measure how far the planes travelled.

Room 15 visit UCD science department – Forces and energy

The boys and girls in Room 15 were invited to UCD science department by Ben’s dad Tom. He told us all about the planets and the moon and sun.

We got to make our own rockets using air pressure and water.

It was such a great day. Thanks to Tom for organising.
