Science week took place from 11th to 16th November this year and Saint Kilian’s Junior School engaged in a week of experiments and science work. We will be applying for a STEM award once again this year, following our success over the last four years, and we will be using lots of the investigations we worked on this week in our submission. Each year group worked on a separate science theme, doing experiments and activities as follows.
Junior Infants: Looking at Materials and their Properties - Designing a Winter Coat.
Senior Infants: Living Things, Planting cress and mustard seeds, Planting spring bulbs, caring for them and watching them grow.
First Class: Investigating Gravity - Designing a Rocket
Second Class: Investigating Floating and Sinking - Designing a Rocket
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.
Jungle Dave came to visit on Wednesday and brought his wonderful array of animals with him.
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 21st/22nd November.
