Every day, lots of us are busy investigating aspects of the science curriculum. Take a look below at some of the hands-on science investigations we have carried out.
We celebrate Science Week every year, and this year we hosted and attended events to mark it. Check those out here.
Junior Infants Room 5 investigated "How does a plant grow? What does it need?"
See also how Mr Kennedy's Senior Infants class used technology to help them better understand living things here.
Energy and Forces
Junior Infants Room 10 and 1st Class Room 15 checked out floating and sinking.
While Senior Infants Room 3 had a look at energy and forces at work in their lava lamps.
Senior Infants Rooms 1 and 13 had a look at the effects of heating, cooling and water on materials.
Environmental Awareness and Care
Senior Infants Rooms 2 and 14, as well as Junior Infants Room 8, investigated our local environment and how we can look after it.
Guzzler and Claire McDonald from the SEAI visited three of our first classes on Wednesday, 12th October. They did some energy workshops with the boys and girls in Room 37 (Ms Conway), Room 36 (Ms Kaye) and Room 15 (Ms O'Riordan). Everyone had great fun, and we learned lots about how energy works and how we can save energy every day. They came back again on 18th January 2017 for more Science fun! This time, they visited Room 35 (Ms Boyle), Room 38 (Ms Feeney) and Room 16 (Ms Crooke).
