On March 6th, 6th class took part in the first ever ESB Science Blast in the RDS. We were really proud to attend and to present our project on the science of the playground. We had a brilliant day, attending two workshops, speaking to the judges and exploring the other stands.

Over the last few months, we’ve taken part in a number of investigations related to the playground. These investigations taught us a lot about slides, zip lines and surfaces, but more importantly, we learned a lot about fair testing, the process of design and make and the skills of STEM. Thanks to the RDS and ESB for a fantastic day!

5th and 6th class pupils are currently taking part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and have been working hard over the past few months to learn about what it takes to set up and run your own business! We have learned about the qualities that it takes to become an entrepreneur and the different aspects to running a business, from marketing, finance and product/ service design.

We worked in groups to develop possible business ideas and pitched them in the Dragon’s Den! Mr. Foley and Brian, a guest entrepreneur, listened to our ideas. Teamwork and communication were key during our presentations and the dragons gave us all feedback and chose which business idea would go forward into production in each class. We were delighted to hear such positive feedback on all the ideas we presented!

We were also lucky enough to have a business person visit us to discuss how to set up a business, what types of costs are associated with running a business and what motivates them to continue to develop their product. Christy came to speak with us about his hugely successful business, Beverly Hills Formula! We were very interested to hear about how his business has grown and what types of people work with him on his team. He told us to remember that you must have a unique idea to develop and be able to/ enjoy talking to people. We had the opportunity to ask him a variety of questions and he very kindly answered all of them! We were encouraged to hear that entrepreneurs often like hiring recent college graduates with ICT skills, so we’ll bare this mind in future!

Second and Fifth class decided to join together to celebrate Engineers Week on Wednesday and had lots of fun completing a STEM challenge. We worked together in small groups to try to build a structure that was strong and tall. We had to build using either a square or rectangular shape because we wanted to see if this would make any difference to how strong and tall our structures would be. Teamwork was also very important! We used plasticine and and small match sticks to create our structures.

Check out some of our photographs below to see us in action!

   

We worked really well in our teams, making sure that everyone had a chance to contribute. We found that it was important to mould the plasticine carefully as this helped in making our structures strong.

  

Paddy arrived as our guest judge and scored the structures out of a possible 30 points – 10 points for strength, 10 points for height and 10 points for teamwork. We were so proud when all teams taking part received 10 points for teamwork! A huge well done to all the pupils for their hard work and congratulations to the winning team who won a homework pass for the night! Check out our finished structures below:

We kicked off our new school year with a good start on attendance. Despite the usual coughs, colds and sniffles we made a big effort to get in to school and had an extra special bonus prize this month. Any child in everyday for the last 2 weeks of January got to go to the “School Cinema”. We had the hall set up with a giant projector screen and watched Gnome Alone in the morning, complete with popcorn. We also had several classes beat their attendance from January last year and will be kicking off the prizes for those classes with pizza parties this week. Keep up the good work on attendance and well done to all our superhero attenders for January.
