Science- Paper Bags

Here is an account of the experiment from a 5th class pupil: We did an experiment about how to make a paper bag. We split up into teams and got a €2 budget. Masking tape was 10c and a sheet of paper was 20c. Our group bought 5 sheets of paper and 10 pieces of masking tape. We made a bag and then we went outside and had races with our paper bags and saw which bag could hold the most water bottles. The most was 6.

Science- Parachutes

Here is an account of the experiment written by two 3rd class pupils: Last week 3rd class, 4th class and 5th class did an experiment on parachutes. They had access to bags, string, tape, masking tape, play dough and stick men. They had to trick gravity into slowing down the parachutes fall. Everyone was separated into 8 groups for the experiment. Everyone had two bags to work with, one was big and the other was small. Most people used the big bag, but our group managed to used both the big and small bags. Everyone got about 10 minutes to make the parachute. When they were finished they took it outside in the yard. Everyone got to throw their parachutes in the air when a gust of wind passed by. The team that won was the team that used two bags.

The girls from 4th, 5th and 6th classes had a very interesting science week. On Wednesday the girls in Ms O Briens class went to UCC where they listened to the Across Africa talk. They found it very interesting. On Thursday the UCC Cell Explorers team came to the school where they did a workshop and experiments with Ms. O Leary's and Ms. O Brien's classes. The Fantastic DNA Project let the children try and extract DNA from bananas. As you can see from the pictures below the children were very interested in the experiment and successfully extracted DNA from the bananas.

Basketball with Ciarán

On Friday the girls from 2nd to 6th classes went up to Neptune Stadium where Ciarán from Cork Sports Partnership showed the girls some more basketball skills. The girls really enjoyed playing the games that Ciarán did with them and benefited from the skills that he showed them. They will be practising their new skills over the coming weeks and months when they go up to Neptune with their teachers.
