The children in 1st to 6th class went to Carlow IT today. In the morning, the children completed two activities. One activity was in the sports lab and the other in a hall. In the lab, the children measured their speed sprinting, how high they can jump and developed strength through squatting. In the hall, the children did a circuit workout and then a relay race.
In the afternoon, the children engaged in the ‘Cell Explorers’ Programme. The children extracted DNA from a banana. The children really enjoyed being a scientist and even got to wear a lab coat!
Thank you to Carlow IT and Ciara for organising the day for the children. They had a great day! Thank you to Claire and Tara for coming along and helping the children and teachers with the activities.

We worked in small groups and investigated a country in Europe. We created a poster to display what we learned and we made a building from the country. Didn’t they do a great job?
Ms Brownrigg is very impressed with all the hard work that the children have put into their projects and buildings!! 🙂
The projects are displayed in the hall and parents are invited to come and see them on Friday 7th June 2019 at 2 o’clock.
We will have food, which is associated with each country, available to taste on the day.

The children in the Senior Room have been very busy today! They painted the fence in the school garden. Do you like the colour that we chose? Zara and Ms Connolly drew some designs on the wall of the garden, which a group of children helped them to paint.
Well done to all the children involved. Ms Brownrigg is really proud of her class as they worked really hard and as a team!

The children in the Junior and Senior Room were brought to the park today. The children soaked up the sunshine as they played on the swings and other equipment available.
Next time, we might bring a picnic!

In Science we studied electricity and after doing some experiments with static electricity, we moved on to building circuits.
First we built a maze. Bee Bots were programmed in Maths lessons (shape and space / programming) and sent off into the maze. If they went wrong, we needed an alarm.
Then we designed switches to close the circuits that lost Bee Bots would set off. Some amazing imagination and creativity here in first, second and third : )

This term in the Middle Room, we have been learning about the Vikings.
The Vikings lived in wooden longhouses, often built with wood cut in places far from home and shipped back to Scandinavia. Materials, animals and slaves were taken from Celtic Ireland to new settlements in Iceland and Greenland too.
We made models of Viking longhouses to picture this and their way of life better. We learned a lot about design and building as well!

The children in 3rd to 6th class went to the VISUAL in Carlow today, to conclude the ‘Bees Needs’ programme. We met children from other schools in the Carlow area, that took part in the five week programme. Two children from each school spoke about what they enjoyed doing and learned. Each child received a certificate and we all look forward to taking part in the programme again next year.
Well done to all the children involved!!
