All the pupils in 3th, 4th, 5th and 6th class presented at our senior science show this year. It was amazing to see all the scientific investigations that have been going on in all classrooms this year.
3rd Class demonstrated investigations on the conduction of heat, friction and shapes for all the senior classes.
Mrs Crossan’s class presented to Junior Infants, Senior Infants and Second Class some of the topics that they have been learning about throughout the year.
The children were excellent at presenting and explaining about Bones, Senses, Plants and the Life Cycle of a Frog.
The children were able to ‘create’ a tornado in a bottle and a cloud in a jar – very impressive.
We had great fun this week planting. We spent time cleaning up around the school, picking up litter, getting rid of the weeds and digging for fresh soil. Each class then took it in turns to plant a range of items.
Thank you very much to Joanne for helping to organise all the planting and also to the team of parents who helped us throughout the morning.
It was a great success!
This is what we planted:
Junior Infants– Broad beans
2nd Class-Lettuce/spring onions
4th/5th Class– Potatoes
6th Class– Carnations
6th class also planted lettuce and they are going to carry out an experiment to see which materials deter slugs and snails.
2nd Class really enjoyed themselves as they invited Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class into their classroom to talk about the topics that they investigated in Science and Technology this year.
Our Topics included – Senses – A taste test. Space – the planets; Magnets – repel &; attract; Insulation – the best material; Internet Safety; Sound – soundwaves are vibrations; Plants – how to they drink? Materials – making pancakes.
We investigated air pressure in Junior and Senior Infants. We used paint, card and a straw. We discovered that the paint spread if we used the straw to blow through because there was more air pressure. We decided to make blow paint aliens!
