Wow! What a week of science we have had, from building bridges, creating an electrical circuit, making an apple clock, blowing big bubbles, exploding coke, lava lamps, crystals and much much more. We took part in a zoom with Kerry Science Festival. Below are some of the amazing things we learned:
Lodestone is a natural magnet that was discovered by accident 9,000 years ago. The earth is a big magnet. Sea Turtles and the Bogong Moth use the earths magnetic field to travel. The fastest train travels at 600km per hour and is supported by a magnetic field. The highest jump on a trampoline is 6.7metres. Science is Everything!!
The Junior Room painted mini hurls to help them learn how to hold a hurl and where to it the ball. Thank you to Conor Daly (GPO) for teaching the children of All Saints’ GAA. They have really enjoyed learning GAA skills.
The children are working very hard towards their 7th Green School Fag: Global Citizenship Energy. They had great fun designing a new way to save energy using Lego. The children had some amazing ideas. We hope you enjoy reading their poems on the theme of Energy. Our Green School Motto is : Turn it off! Switch it off! Plug it out! REPEAT!
