Third/Fourth class used their construction skills today to design and make paper aeroplanes ahead of competition to see whose plane could fly the furthest!
Mrs Brosnan then brought the children outside where the ‘flights’ took place. Following this the children used the measuring skills they have been honing this week during maths to measure the distance travelled by their creations. Well done to Christian whose plane flew the furthest!
Our Active School Flag committee began the New Year with a meeting to start working on new initiatives for 2019. The school has been working on different elements of the Active School Flag programme since the start of the school year and now the committee will place more emphasis on break times and on planning for Active School Week.
Congratulations to our Star Award winners for December! One pupil from each classroom was selected by their class teacher and the award winners were presented with certificates at today’s assembly. They were also given a night off homework for their efforts!
An extra award, decided on by Ms O’Dwyer and Mrs. Brosnan, is presented to pupils for a particular act of kindness or to pupils who have completed an exemplary piece of work in school. Well done to the latest recipient of this award.
The pupils of third & fourth class investigated the effects of Coca Cola on old coins.
The pupils documented what the coins looked like before submerging them in Coca Cola for 24 hours and then checked the results. The majority of groups noticed a big difference in the coins once they gave them a clean up once they came out of the coke.
