Science

Science is taught as part of SESE (Social, Environmental and Scientific Education) and is integrated with geography and history. We enjoy doing experiments with the children and sometimes we participate in science workshops such as the “Discover Science” programme in the Discovery Park in Castlecomer.

Third Class completed research projects on topics of their choice.  They thoroughly enjoyed finding the information, putting the project together with lots of interesting facts and pictures.

The boys completed their projects on “Cattle” and “Sheep”.  As a teacher, I learned so much about these animals as I do not live on a farm!  Well done boys….

The girls completed their projects on “The Famine in Ireland”, “Dance” and “Bugs”.  They did wonderful work.  Well done girls!

Water Birds of Ireland

Date posted: 4th May 2011 | Category Blog, Science, Senior Classroom |

4th, 5th and 6th Class have been learning all about various water birds which live in Ireland. They read about gannets, cormorants, herring gulls, oystercatchers, dunlins, mute swans, whooper swans and bewick’s swans.

They wrote  information about each bird and drew illustrations to go with their work

Some of these birds live in Ireland all year round, while others only come here for our mild winters!
