Take a look at the children in room 8 coding with Bee Bots in their pods!
Room 2 had great fun this week for Science week. We made our very own volcano, explored static electricity and what classroom items sank or floated.
The children in Room 30 have been working in the HUB in their pods.
They have been learning to code using Sphero EDU bolt robots.
Sphero is a robot ball with several features that can be controlled through the Sphero EDU app.
Take a look at some of the fantastic Science experiments in Senior Infants Room 6 for Science Week 2020. They have been very busy!
Room 4 had a very busy week this week!
Take a look at some of their science experiments: Dancing Raisins, Lava Lamps, Coke and Mentos Explosions, Static Electricity with Balloons, Gummy Bears Experiment, Making Levers, Ramps and Surfaces, Drawing Insects, Fire: Oxygen v Carbon Dioxide and Floating and Sinking.
Future engineers in Room 21, creating freestanding structures using spaghetti and plasticine for Science week 2020. They also explored lots of different science experiments this week.
The children in Room 3 Junior Infants have been very busy for Science Week 2020. They completed five activities focusing on floating and sinking, levers and pulleys, ramps, materials and friction, analysing insects and investigating how a candle need O2 to stay lit.
Science week is a little different this year in our school unfortunately but there are lots of exciting activities and experiments still going on in class!
Take a look at what the children in Room 1 have been learning about this week. Working in stations they have explored objects that float or sink. They looked at different insects and counted their legs. They tried to build a wheel barrow. Ramps with different surfaces were also used and the children discovered which surfaces were the best for speed. The children also discovered that flames need oxygen to stay alight!
Some of the children in Senior Infants, 3rd and 6th class took part in EU code week.
The children were coding in their pods with Bee Bot floor robots, the Rainforest coding adventure game and using code builder with Minecraft Education.
EU Code Week is a initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.
Take a look at some photos and videos:
