Room 27 - Bee Workshop

2nd class were busy little bees recently when Mark Nolan from Biodiversity Ireland visited. The children enjoyed a fantastic 'Pollinator Project' workshop learning about pollinators in Ireland, bee hives and how to help keep our pollinators protected. Children found lots of bees in our school environment and we are going to make a great effort to continue to help bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies. One of our classmates even became our beekeeper!

Room 27 Science Lesson

Ms. Moran’s Second Class did an amazing Science activity at school recently. We were very lucky to have Calum’s Mom and Dad come in to our class and show us some really interesting things about biology.

We chatted and discussed different parts of the eye and how we see.  We also talked about blindness and diseases which can affect eyesight. All of us got to feel what it would be like to be blind by wearing a mask over our eyes.

We looked at a monkey’s eye and a mouse’s eye.

We then got to dissect the eye of a cow!!  It was SO cool and interesting!

We looked at a mouse’s eye through a microscope too.

Lots of us want to be scientists when we grow up.

Science Week in Room 1

For Science week, the students in Room 1 explored how to make a paper bridge stronger by investigating how forces act on objects. They had fun designing a bridge that would take the heaviest weight!
