Well done to everyone in 2nd class who made their First Communion on Saturday the 21st of April. It was a really special day for all the boys and girls who worked so hard to prepare for it. Congratulations boys and girls!
Mr. McCarthy’s, Ms. Trihy and Miss Kelly’s classes were very busy this week working on their science experiment.
We even created mathematical word problems to complement our word problems!
The children in Room 2 experimented with raisins in water and 7up. We dropped five raisins in to a glass of water and we dropped five raisins in to a glass of 7up. We saw that the raisins in the 7up started to jump up and down but the raisins in the water did not move.
After studying bridges near our school, Ms. Cantwell’s 4th class decided to build their own. The task was simple – using only two pieces of A4 paper, we needed to construct a bridge that would support our pegs.
It was easier said than done but as you can see from the above pictures, we definitely have some future engineers in room 18A.
