Science Week in Room 1 #scienceweek2020

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!

EU Code week in St. Brigids’s #codeweek

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:
