Science week takes place from 12th to 19th November this year and Saint Kilian’s Junior School will be actively involved. We will be applying for a STEM award once again this year, following our success in the last three years. Each year group will be working on a separate science theme, doing experiments and activities as follows.
Junior Infants: Working with Magnets
Senior Infants: Investigating Materials around the School
First Class: Investigating Temperature
Second Class: Investigating Sound
The best scientist will be selected from each class and they will receive their prizes and their special Science Certificates from Ms. Sweeney at Assembly at the end of the month.
A mobile planetarium will visit our school on Tuesday 14th and will set up in our school hall. The children will see 3D movies relating to space themes, they will have the opportunity to ask questions about what they see.
Room 10 and Room 16 will be visiting The Natural History Museum on Thursday and will take part in the Skullduggery Tour.
The children will be engaged in lots of exciting experiments and fun scientific activities during the week. Lots of our science work will be on view during parent teacher meetings on 22nd/23rd November.
