European Week of Sport 2018 #TugofWar

What a fantastic week we have had here in St Clare’s! We have been busy this week taking part in different activities for European Week of Sport. To finish off the week today, 6th class took on the teachers in tug of war. The teachers definitely need to work on their strength as 6th class beat them 2-1. Congratulations 6th class!

Well done everyone for participating so well in a superb week of sport!

The Globe Project – 4th Class Room 6 and 5th Class Room 7

Today we completed cloud observations in groups. We examined the clouds in the sky and then some of us were given the opportunity to use the CALITOO. This instrument measures the amount of aerosols (particles) in the air. We hope to be uploading this data to the GLOBE website in the coming weeks. P1030922

GLOBE Project

Our fourth and fifth classes were getting started with some cloud observations in preparation for our GLOBE project this year. GLOBE is a project run in conjunction with the EPA, An Taisce and ESERO, the European Space Agency.

The project monitors aerosols and air quality around the world. Our young scientists were practicing their skills at cloud observation and classification. They will be recording their results  online and sharing them with schools and scientists around the world.  Here you can see them hard at work.
