Miss Griffin’s 6th class had an amazing day at the Primary Science Fair in the RDS on Friday. They did amazingly well answering all the questions that the public asked them, and did their school proud. Our class would like to thank everyone that made the day possible, including parents that came with us and helped out on the day, parents that helped by talking about the experiment and research at home, parents who helped to send emails, and anyone who popped in to see us and offered us words of encouragement and support. We’d also like to thank Mr Vance for coming in to see us in the RDS, and to all the teachers and students who took part in our experiment or helped in any way.
Please find a selection of photos from the day below (there are at least 3 past pupils from St Kevin’s, as well as a few other famous faces!!), but if you would like to find out more about our project and see all of the photos from when we began planning our project right through to Friday’s presentation, please go to https://perceptionofsightandtaste.wordpress.com/photo-gallery
After months of preparation, including weeks of research, 6 experiments, 40 participants from 1st class, 3rd class, 6th class and teachers, 3 minor heart attacks caused by Mircosoft Word bar charts and pie charts, 6 litres of smoothies and 7 litres of ice cream, we’re finally ready to present our research in the RDS tomorrow.
If you would love to know what we did, but can’t make it to the RDS, everything you could want to know about the sense of sight and taste in humans and animals, our experiments, results, and photos of us from every stage along the way, check out our website (created and run by members of our class) by clicking the image below!
Mark Jenkins paid a visit to Mr. O’Neill’s 6th class and played ‘The Elephant’ from Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. Did you know that part of the bow for his double bass is made from a mammoth’s tusk? Neither did we.
Two weeks ago we had the school book fair which went great. We ran a competition last week as a thank you for supporting the Book Fair and all you had to do was leave a comment on the blog saying why you liked/loved the Book Fair. Everyone who left a comment was entered into a draw to win a few books. The winners of the books were Lauren from Ms. Griffin’s Class and Caelyn from Mr. McDonnell’s class. Congratulations girls!
