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 Рthat 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!
