Cumann na mBunscol Boys Blitz


Congratulations to the boys hurling team, who all put in excellent performances in the Cumann na mBunscol blitz in Ballinakill last week. They won three matches against Coolfancy, Kilcoole and St. Fergals, with clean sheets in their first two games. Unfortunately, they narrowly lost out to Scoil Chualann who were the eventual winners.

Well done boys and everyone in the school is extremely proud of you!

4th Class Secret Agents!

James Bond needed help from some 4th class secret agents. Last time he was chasing bad guys, he slipped and fell. He couldn’t understand why so it was up to us to show him that he needs to create friction between his shoes and the surface to stop himself from slipping. We used force metres to measure the force needed to move shoes across different surfaces. We had to repeat each measurement three times and find the average to make sure that our findings were accurate. We then drew bar charts to show James Bond that different surfaces need different amounts of force to move the shoes. We found that very little force was needed to move shoes across our tables. So, James, beware of running on tables!
