Science is probably one of the most popular subjects on the school curriculum.  It is very “hands on” and the children enjoy questioning, predicting, investigating, experimenting, estimating, measuring, analyzing, classifying, sorting and recording.

Every year since 2008, our school has received a Discover Primary Science and Maths Award in recognition of the work done in both these subjects. To be eligible for an award, the school has to engage in an extensive range of activities and provide evidence that the children have

  • been involved in hands-on science experiments.
  • organised or attended a science event.
  • used technology as part of their school work.
  • investigated engineering in class or in the local area.
  • used their maths skills as part of their science work.

Teachers are very enthusiastic about this award as it recognises the high standard of the work they do in their classrooms in these subject areas.

19 December 2017: Intel Mini Scientist Competition
Congratulations to Ms Cauley and her class who competed in the Intel Mini Scientist competition recently. One group from her class was selected to represent the school in the Regional Finals in the Institute of Technology in Blanchardstown on 8th December. They were Isabel Whitty, Róisín, Róisín Carroll, Jack Doyle Brownrigg, Ryan Austin and Michael Rooney. The class had worked in groups to do their own projects. The winning project was on Diabetes. Judges from Intel visited the school on 13th October and selected the group to go forward to the Finals. Well done to Ms Cauley and all her class – especially the group which represented the school so well in Dublin.

4 May 2017: Science Day
Science Day is part of our application for the award. On this day the children can bring their pets (more details on restrictions will follow). Parents are welcome at 1pm. The children will talk about their projects. This is wonderful for oral language development and confidence building.

4 - 10 March 2017: Engineers Week
Engineers week gives the children an opportunity to learn about the work of engineers and perhaps to inspire some of them to think of becoming the engineers of the future.
All classes participated in science activities.

The pupils in Mrs Warren’s class enjoyed a workshop with Krzysztof. They learned about the construction of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World and the 7 Modern Wonders. They even decided to select their own 7 Irish wonders. They also learned about the work of an engineer and viewed the plans for the 2 storey extension for our school. Krzysztof worked on these plans and could give the children lots of details. He also examined bridges with the pupils in Ms Cawley’s class. On 9th March 2017, Mrs Warren’s class visited the “Scientific Sue” event for Engineers Week in Carlow IT.
