On Tuesday the 17th of December a scientist called Declan came to do fun experiments with us. He taught us how an aeroplane flies, showed us how to make a musical instrument out of a straw and also how to make rockets. He also demonstrated the weight of the air using a ping-pong ball and a jar of water! It was amazing! Everyone had a great day and thanks to the teachers for organising it.
On the 9th of December we went to the cinema to see Penguins of Madagascar for a Christmas treat. We would like to thank all the teachers for bringing us on the trip and for the popcorn and drinks. We had great day.

Your generous support and contribution is most appreciated.
On the 13th of November 5th and 6th class went to a science competition in Claremorris. It was part of science week. We had to build a structure using 200 toothpicks and 50 jellytots. The structure had to hold a 1 kg bag of sugar. We had practised hard and both structures held the sugar. We didn’t win a prize but we learned a lot and had a lot of fun. We hope to take part in the competition next year.
