We really enjoyed our annual Harry Potter Quiz. We got to work in teams with children from all different classes. We worked really well together and had lots of fun. Many thanks to Ms O'Kelly from the secondary school and her lovely students for organising and hosting the quiz so well. We are already looking forward to next year!
We learned all about symmetry in Maths class and then in Art class we made these super symmetrical self-portraits. We focussed on our sketching skills and shading to make our pictures look as symmetrical as possible.
In science we have been exploring and experimenting with floating and sinking.
During our first experiment, we used oranges and bananas (items which float) and experimented with changing them in different ways in order to make them sink.
During our second experiment, we used a ball of plasticine (an item which sinks) and experimented with how we could change it to make it float. We made some great boats- some of them could even hold passengers!
We found out that the density of an item, as well as its shape, is what results in it floating or sinking. Like real scientists, we observed and recorded our results carefully.
Have a look!
At the end of last term, our non-uniform day raised €185 for the Laura Lynn Charity. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
