Science Week

We had great fun taking part in lots of different activities during Science week 2020.

Water Pollution and oil spills

We learnt all about water pollution.  We learnt about oil spills, how they effect the environment and the various methods that are used to clean up oil spills.  We then conducted an experiment to investigate the different ways of cleaning up oil spills.  We also investigated the effect oil can have on birds feathers.

Virtual Workshop:

We also took part in a virtual science workshop and took part in lots of fun experiments where we learnt about

-the cohesive and adhesive properties of water which create water tension,

-capilliary action in plants  and

-how water gets to our taps

Show and tell

We concluded the week with a fabulous ‘Show and Tell’ session where we showed off some of our really cool science projects experiments.

Class Presidential Election

We have been following the American Election closely this year, and decided to have our own election for class president.

Candidates worked hard to perfect their election speeches and manifestos.  They ran very successful campaigns coming up with excellent slogans, and tag lines.  Their classmates worked hard to ensure their campaigns were successful producing election posters and flyers.

Prior to our ballot, our candidates went head to head in an election debates.

Well done Eoghan Conroy who won the election and is our new class president.  He is already working hard to fulfill his promises and has already begun his work on organising lunchtime leagues for our 5th and 6th class.
