For the last number of weeks, Ms Brennan and Ms Sexton have been organising an after-school club to prepare for the Creative Schools. We’re working on a collection of stop-motion animations to show the greatest moments of invention and discoveries. It’s called the ‘A-ha Moments Project’ and we can’t wait to show you all of our hard work. So far, we’ve chosen our moments of discovery, storyboarded our animation, written the scripts and started to build with clay. Next, we need to film! Here’s a sneak peek at some of our work so far, courtesy of Patryk from...

In October, a video showing the history of Ireland in 6 minutes took the Internet by storm. We posted it here on our blog and 5th class were so impressed by it that we contacted John Ruddy, the maker of the video, to ask him if he’d do a quick Q&A on animation. We have a really exciting project coming up in the New Year related to Science and Animation, and Leon and Eduard already showed off their stop-motion skills as part of Culture Night here. John Ruddy kindly agreed to answer any questions and we started thinking about the questions we wanted to know about animation. We were interested...

Every year, Culture Night takes place in late September. This year, it’s on the 20th of September – a Friday. It’s an amazing night where you can access venues and events around the country for free. Although all events are free, some may need to be booked in advance – which is why we’re drawing attention to them nice and early!

  Hi, I’m Dillon Ebbs and I’m in 6th Class. Every year, St. Peter’s BNS participates in the BT Young Scientist Competition. Most people don’t know this, but the BT Young Scientist has a primary section called the ‘Primary Science Fair’. We have entered this for many years and our projects have been about many things including a study on lifeboats, the physics of the Funfair and how chocolate is made.
