In first class, we became engineers, we made our very own catapults! Here’s how we did it: Firstly, we had to investigate how catapults worked. We watched different videos which showed us loads of different catapults, how they were made and how they worked!Each group then decided which catapult they wanted to make. Each group then decided on the materials they wanted to use. They could choose from straws, lollipop sticks, bottle caps, plastic spoons, pipe cleaners, elastic bands, sellotape and plastic.

STEM for Fun with the junior classes started a couple of weeks ago.

Humpty Dumpty STEM Experiment   Here in Junior and Senior Infants, we had great fun reciting the Humpty Dumpty rhyme.

Before beginning the experiment, we discussed the different materials we would use to try...

Inspired by our visit from ‘Sam’ the puppet today, Senior Infants decided that we would like to learn more about how to use puppets.  Our friend in 5th class has kindly offered to pay us a few more visits to help us out.  We are looking forward to introducing our own puppets to ‘Sam’ over the coming weeks and we hope to create a puppet show for other classes to show off our skills. This afternoon senior infants were visited by ‘Sam’ the puppet. We had a great laugh speaking with him and listening to his interesting stories. Many thanks to our friend in 5th...

Today one of our classmates in senior infants brought in a pepper plant they grew at home. They taught us all about peppers.

What a fun day we had! pic.twitter.com/zF7GssdgTY — St. Peter’s Primary (@StPetersBray) January 11, 2019
