PostHeaderIcon Science For Fun – parents needed

20th September 2017


Science For Fun will be starting soon and we are looking for parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles to help out. 3rd class will be participating but you don’t need to have a child in those classes to help out. All help is welcome and appreciated. If you think you could join in the fun and help the children or if you have any questions, please speak to Laragh in the Parent’s Room.

The sessions will be on Wednesdays 9 to 10am from the 4th of October to the 15th of November excluding the 1st November (6 sessions in total).

This month (March 2017) in EX1 we have been sowing and growing some plants! We planted some cress seeds, green beans and carrots! Thank you to Mr Shovlin for providing us with the materials from Sow and Grow. We have a chart where we monitor the growth each week and a member of our class is awarded the ‘Star grower’ award for the week! Their name is then written in on the chart! We have learned all about the conditions required for a plant to grow! They need water, sunlight and oxygen!We cannot wait to see how our plants turn out!

In November 2016 we had our Science week and had lots of fun experimenting. Our favourite experiment was making Elephant Toothpaste. We were delighted to show our experiment to the Minister of Education and Skills, Richard Bruton. We even made the RTE news!
