To celebrate World Earth Day, G3 used the scientific method of Chromatography to create a 2-D Earth.
They also wrote a class poem entitled “Earth Day”.
R6 had a bicycle safety workshop with Sorcha Brophy from Green Schools’ Ireland.
They learned how to carry out a maintenance check on their bikes and how to fit a helmet correctly.
They also got to take part in the egg test, where an egg is thrown from different heights to show the importance of wearing a helmet at all times when on your bike! The egg was damaged even at the lowest height. Your head is more precious than an egg but just as delicate!
PLEASE ALWAYS WEAR YOUR HELMET!!
On Wednesday 4th October, the 5th Classes took part in a Science workshop run by Sustainable Energy Ireland. They learned all about the energy we use, fossil fuels, climate change and renewable energy.
They took part in experiments including the Alka-Seltzer pop where they saw how chemical energy is released and the potato battery experiment where they found out about amounts of chemical energy stored in food.
It was a very informative and enjoyable day.
