This week Sixth Class had to put their engineering caps on and complete the EGG DROP CHALLENGE!!
The objective was to design a landing craft that would protect an egg from cracking or breaking from a high fall. Each student had to design, build and test their landing craft for homework. They made them using a variety of materials, such as, show boxes, pillows, plastic bags and popcorn. Many students also made parachutes and wings to help their landing craft.
We had great fun testing them and checking to see whether our eggs ‘survived’ the drop. In the end, we only broke three eggs!
Have a look at some of our EGG-CELLENT landing crafts!
Our Party Bag Busters are hitting the headlines! Check them out below.
Our annual Art Exhibition takes place today. The wonderful pieces of art that we created in class will be exhibited in the hall. Our families have been invited to the school to view our masterpieces.
Why not have some fun over the weekend and get skipping! Below you will find a link to the skipping skills needed to achieve the different skipping awards.
Sixth Class visited Kilmainham Gaol on Wednesday. They visited the cells of Patrick Pearse and Countess Markievicz. They saw where the seven leaders of the 1916 Rising were executed.
