First class were constructing boats as part of a STEM challenge this week. To begin we decided to test different items to see if they would float or sink. Here are some pictures that show our test:

After this first class started to make a plan in groups of three to decide what materials they would use to build their boats.

The boat had to hold a trailer and stay afloat for 10 seconds. All of the boats were successful and passed the STEM challenge. Take a look at us designing and some of our finished products.

John Treanor, a building services engineer, came into 6th yesterday to teach the children all about motors. He is also a past pupil of Peters which was lovely. He knew they had a big interest in electric scooters and bikes, so they all made their own motor! We used magnets, batteries and a bolt. They really enjoyed it. Thanks a mil for coming in!

5th class are currently doing JEP (Junior Entrepreneur Programme). JEP is a programme that encourages students to become entrepreneurs and come up with a business idea. We spent time working in groups and came up with lots of ideas for products to sell.

We then took part in the Meet the Dragons event. An entrepreneur called Brian McGovern came and judged our projects alongside Ms Roche, Ms Keane and Mr Foley. We had lots of fun and the winner was ‘Figet Pencils’🏆

We started to do some market research. We went around to different classes, teachers and students with a survey of questions.

We are currently makng the figet pencils and are taking orders. A Figet Pencil costs €1.50

Today in first class we explored static electricity with balloons. Take a look at the items our balloons could pick up.

We also found out that static electricity makes our hair stand up. Look how silly we look!

Senior Infants had special visitors this month – some caterpillars! We have been learning all about Spring this month and about lifecycles, particularly the lifecycle of a butterfly.

Our caterpillars arrived into us in their little tub, full of food to keep them full so that they could grow nice and big and get ready to form their chrysalis after a few weeks.

Once they formed their chrysalis, we moved them from their tub into their butterfly net so that they could continue to hang vertically and prepare for when they would change into butterflies.

After another few days, ‘the painted lady’ butterflies came out of their chrysalis as fully formed butterflies. They needed to let their wings harden so they couldn’t fly straight away. They were fed fruit while they stayed in the net.

Once they were strong enough, they were let free and they flew away.
