Activities completed by the children in 4th to 6th Class

‘Eggcellent Experiments’

17th May 2019

The children learned about Air Resistance in Science last week. Today, they made their own parachutes using a variety of materials. Each group needed to include a basket, for the egg. The egg represented a person.

They dropped the parachutes from a height. Most of their parachutes brought the egg safely to the ground.

An artist, working with VISUAL Carlow has been working with the children in 3rd to 6th class over the last number of weeks. They have been learning about the importance of bees and things that we can all do to help them. The children have made bees using clay and created a collage about bees. They also helped in the design of a Bee Sanctuary called ‘Bee Barn’ which is now located at the front of the school.

The children in the Senior Room planted cress, sweet pea and tomato seeds in pots on Tuesday 2nd April 2019. Today, we decided to move the plants from the hall and to plant them outside near our ‘Bee Barn’.
