Gravity and Parachutes in Ms Forde’s First Class

  We did some fun experiments in Science in February and March. We learned about gravity and air resistance. We made predictions about which would reach the ground first – the book or the teddy. We dropped them from the top of the stairs to observe the result. We did this test three times to make it fair. We also learned about air resistance. This is a force that tries to slow down objects that are moving. We predicted which would reach the ground first – a crumpled up piece of paper or a sheet of paper. Can you see which hit the ground first? The air made the sheet of paper slow down. Then, in our groups, we made a parachute. We dropped our parachutes from the stairs to test them out.

Ms. Lynch’s 3rd Class on T.V.

For the month of March, Third Class were working on the topic ‘An Teilifís/The Television’ in Irish. As part of this, Ms. Lynch’s class decided to work on a T.V. project and record some mini television programmes. The children in our class voted on what T.V. shows to include in our project and then worked on writing Irish scripts for the different programmes. After we wrote the scripts, we practised reading them to each other.  Next, we used one of our school iPads to record our classmates reading their scripts in front of our whiteboard. We also made voice recordings for an episode of ‘Peppa Pig’.  We really enjoyed writing and recording our class project, and are very proud of our finished project. You can watch our video...
