PostHeaderIcon Science Week 2020

Science week took place in our school on the 8th – 15th of November. Unfortunately this year, we were not able to have our Open Day in the hall but the boys and girls were very busy creating science experiments in their classrooms. Here’s just a look at what some of the classes got up to :

3rd – 6th classes took part in Science workshops with ‘Anyone for Science’. They learnt about acids and bases and tested a variety of liquids to see what happens when you add acids to bases. The boys and girls loved the workshop!

Ms. Gorman’s class loved experimenting with the electrical circuits!

Ms. Byrne’s class had great fun making slime!

Ms. Goggin’s class tried out the beebots and loved using them. They also created rainbows using skittles and made some colourful slime.

 

PostHeaderIcon India and the Festival of Lights in Room 11

November 2020

The children in Room 11 had a super time learning all about the country India and the huge festival of Diwali!

Diwali is called the festival of lights and is celebrated every year at the beginning of November. We learned a song about Diwali and watched videos that taught us about the traditions of Diwali. We also made some art that celebrates Diwali. We made Rangoli patterns. These patterns are usually made using sand and placed outside people’s homes during Diwali. We made our own sand Rangoli together. Didn’t the children do a great job?

We also made special candle holders called ‘Diyas’. The children made them really colourful and we placed an artificial candle in each Diya.
