Science Week in Room 9

Room 9 were very busy for Science Week! We hosted a Science Fair for 4th, 5th & 6th classes showing them some very interesting experiments. We also had a visit from Rachel’s mum, Emma who is a professor in Science in Trinity College! We learned about the eye and experimented with some dry ice too – it was really good fun!

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!

Room 9 – History of Rathmines trail

6th class in Room 9 have been busying learning about the history of Rathmines and are currently working on some projects. Last week, we went on a history trail of Rathmines. We discovered lots of history in our locality and learned lots of new information about the church, the Swan River, the library, the town hall, St. Mary’s, the old Kodak building, the Post Office, Belgrave Park and even the houses along Williams Park! Our last stop of the trail was in Belgrave Park and we were lucky enough to enjoy a break and some fun in the autumn leaves after our busy morning!

Listening to 6th class in Room 12

The 6th class pupils were busy writing stories and then they went to Room 12 and shared them with the 2nd class pupils.

It was so interesting to hear their stories.

 

Intercultural Sports Day

Last Thursday, the 6th classes took part in an Intercultural Sports Day. We got to play different sports such as dodgeball, penalties, bean bag toss races, and mini games of tennis and soccer. We were also given some treats to eat and had a medal ceremony for the winners! Thank you to An Garda Síochána for organising such a fantastic day!

Roald Dahl Day in Room 9

Room 9 celebrated Roald Dahl Day on the 13th September by dressing up and having an art lesson inspired by Roald’s Dahl’s book The BFG. Check out our great costumes and dream jars!

3rd class school tour
