The remaining 6th classes took part in virtual STEM sessions with the DreamSpace team today. It was a fantastic experience for all the children. They learned lots about the world of STEM, mixed reality, artificial intelligence and also coded with MicroBits. Lots of complicated code was written and tested!
Thanks to Niamh and Michael of Microsoft DreamSpace for facilitating the sessions today. We look forward to hopefully making an actual visit some day soon.
A big well done to Vincent from 5th class who took home three paralympic medals at the weekend, for javelin, shot put and discus!
Vincent’s Mum kindly agreed for us to share his picture below. What a fantastic achievement!
Two of our 6th classes took part in virtual coding and STEM sessions with Corey from the DreamSpace team today. It was an amazing experience for all the children and they learned so much about the world of STEM, coded with microbits and even designed a rock, paper, scissors game themselves!
Thanks to the DreamSpace Team for facilitating us and hopefully we will get to visit at some stage in the future.
The other two 6th classes have their sessions to look forward to next week.
Take a look at some behind the scenes photos of RTE and Virgin Media news crews visiting our school for the CyberSafe kids report.
6th class has a special day out today for a final Teddy Bear’s picnic.
They brought the same teddies they had in Junior Infants to the picnic!
The children in Ms. Ní Fheargail’s 6th class have been working on lots of different activities for Engineers week 2021.
Take a look at a chain reaction video with books, the pringle ring challenge, and playground designs. The class also participated in a virtual show for Engineer’s week, provided by Engineers Ireland. This focused on building bridges and creating secure structures using different shapes and angles. Fantastic engineering work!
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.
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:
