Science Week

Science Week

This year our focus in 5th and 6th Class was on the Irish Coast and Climate Change. We explored the various bays, headlands and islands around Ireland and investigated marine life that is found on our coasts.

We also explored what effect the North and South Poles melting would have on sea levels through experiments with melting ice! We finished off our week by creating an underwater collage in art.

We also worked with Junior and Senior infants to make parachutes!  It was a very busy science week!

5th and 6th Class have just finished reading Wonder by RJ Palacio and really enjoyed it! It is a book which really makes you think and delivers very powerful messages about kindness. If you are in the school corridors have a look at some of our book reviews and art work.
