Room 12 – Having a blast at the Science Blast

Room 12 attended Science Blast in the RDS with their project ‘How to create an erupting volcano’. It was an insightful and fun day out!

Bee seed bombs in Room 13

As part of the action to achieve our 5th green flag for biodiversity, we are looking at ways to encourage life in our school. Ms Ivers kindly came in and taught us about the importance of bees and the ways different countries are helping them. Using clay, soil and seeds we created bee seed bombs which is perfect for pollinators. We can’t wait until the weather is drier to put these into some grassy/wild areas!

Mexico projects in Room 17

We in Room 17 worked hard for the past month on group projects about Mexico. Every person in each group had a different role  and each group researched and based their project on a different aspect of Mexico.

 

We presented our projects to Room 1, who were a wonderful audience. They asked some great questions and gave us some wonderful feedback. We even sampled some Mexican foods including guacamole and salsa!

 

Everyone really enjoyed the presentations and it was great to celebrate all of the hard work we put in 😊

Celebrating Chinese New Year

Room 1 were learning all about Chinese New Year. We made paper dragons.

This year is the Year of the Rat!

Eruptions in Room 13

Room 13 have been learning about rocks and volcanoes. We made a volcano in class using water, vinegar, bicarbonate soda, washing up liquid and food colouring. This chemical reaction showed us what it’s like when volcanoes erupt and spew molten rock.

Becoming Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs in Room 1

The boys and girls in Room 1 are learning all about Ancient Egypt. They created headpieces and neck pieces that pharaohs would have worn in Ancient Egypt times.

Learning about Ancient Egypt in Room 1

The boys and girls were busy learning all about Ancient Egypt in Room 1. They learned all about the art that was drawn in Ancient Egypt times and got to become a part of their own art.

They look great!

 

Room 9 – WW2 dioramas

Room 9 have been busy learning about WWI in History and about trench warfare. We then took our knowledge of the trenches fro History and used it to make 3D models for an Art project! Check out some of the great dioramas we created!

Science in Room 13

We had a great time investigating internal organs and the skin. Each group focused on one organ and presented it to the class. Did you know that your intestines are the length of two tennis courts?!

Learning from an explorer in Room 17

Room 17 really enjoyed their trip to Rathmines Library where they learned all about Paul Strzelecki, the Polish explorer who helped many Irish children during the Great Famine. What an informative morning we had!
