Ms. Farrell's 5th class have begun the Sow & grow initiative for 2018. The girls planted cress, spinach and peas. They studied the process of photosynthesis and now know that plants are autotrophs and use sunlight to make their own food. the girls are looking to caring for their plants and watching them grow. They are also looking forward to harvesting the crop in a few weeks time and tasting them!

The girls in Ms.Flynn's 1st class designed and made Greek masks recently. When theatre first started in Greece, male characters played male and female parts. To show the difference between the two, white masks represented female roles while brown masks represented male characters. the girls in 1st class looked at examples and noticed that emotions could be portrayed in the masks by changing the shape and size of the eyes and mouth.

Some of the Junior Infant-2nd class pupils had lots of fun on Wednesday morning indoor planting with Ms.Diffley. Our two planters near our entrance door were in much need of some colour so we added some lovely pink, yellow, white and purple plants to them. The girls did a great job planting!

Despite our short week on account of the snow, Ms.Concannon's 4th class got to experience some fun activities during engineering week. They learned all about gravity and air resistance. They had the challenge of making a parachute for an egg and had great fun working in groups. The aim of the experiment was to ensure that the egg had a 'soft landing'. The girls were very creative in their constructions and had an 'egg-cellent time! Did they pass the test? That is the question...

The girls made catapults out of Lego. They learned all about forces and had to investigate which catapult could fire the longest distance!

6th class had lots of fun with Scratch, a computer program which helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively!
