As part of our Science programme this year, we have introduced a 'Science Experiment of the Week' in all classes. The children have had fun exploring and learning about scientific concepts in a fun, and interactive way...and learning that experiments don't always work out as expected the first time round!
Check out the photos below, showing some of the experiments and activities which were conducted by children throughout the year, and some photos of our visit from the Dublin Zoo Outreach programme.
A visit from Dublin Zoo
The Senior Infant children were delighted when Enya visited our school on March 22nd. They got to feel a tiger's fur, touch an elephant's foot and handle a tiger's skull. They watched how zoo keepers care for elephants' nails, and learned why stripes are so important for some animals that live in rainforests.
