This week the boys and girls of Room 13 designed a Sarcophagus for an Egyptian Pharaoh. We first planned our designs on paper before picking up our tools and setting to work. We used a template for the shape of the sarcophagus and then carved intricate designs. Once our clay designs were dry we then used paint to add even more detail. What do you sphinx of our work?!
Room 2 really enjoyed learning all about the flora and fauna along the Grand Canal with wildlife expert Éanna ní Lamhna and investigating pollution in the canal. It’s cleaner than you’d think!
Room 2 really enjoyed a day out to Kilmainham Gaol with a guided tour around this historical building. We saw some of the cells where the 1916 rebels were imprisoned and the yard where some of them were executed. We were happy to enjoy lunch in some wide open spaces after all that confinement!
This year we are trying to get our 3rd Active Flag for the school.

Room 1 had fun today exploring the concept of static electricity. Static electricity is the build-up of an electrical charge on an object. We used static electricity to make hair stand up, move a can without touching it, and even pick up pieces of paper using a balloon!
