Today marked the end of our science exploration “The pyramids have stood the test of time but are skyscrapers built to last?”. We packed up our presentation and excitedly made our way to the RDS for Science Blast!
The study has brought together our thematic units of Ancient Egypt and Buildings allowing the children to apply acquired knowledge to further learning potential. They have researched, investigated, questioned, designed and built throughout their study. It allowed us to incorporate Engineers week through Lego building projects of pyramids, skyscrapers and earthquake simulating shake tables. STEM is so important in our school and the children showcased their project brilliantly today.
We were so proud to see how confident and capable they are in explaining their work to others. As always, they did us proud with excellent manners and behaviour throughout the day. They enjoyed the interactive exploration area, science shows based on circus tricks and the invisible world, as well as visiting projects by other schools from all the country. We were privileged to take part in this event and delighted with the glowing praise given by the judges in our feedback with our Science Blast award.
Well done to each and every one of these students and indeed all our students throughout the school. They have set a wonderful example for all our younger students and proved that with hard work, determination, enthusiasm and confidence in their own abilities anything is possible.
We look forward to what the rest of the school year brings!
Finally to conclude a very special word of thanks to Ms.McDonagh for all her hard work with Rang a Cúig agus a Sé with this project. We sincerely appreciate her hard work, enthusiasm and interest.
