Mr Smith’s class

This month was very busy for our class.

After the Halloween break, we really enjoyed the Tipp teams visit to the school.

For science week, we got to do some fun activities. Ms Brophy came to our class, she helped us understand chromatography and its uses. We carried out our own chromatography experiment also. In class, we heat conduction using balloons. We carried out some floating and sinking experiments too using different fruit.

In maths we have looked at shapes and symmetry and addition with renaming too.

In history, we learned about Grainne Mhaol.

In art, we created our own galley and drew our own winter/polar bears.
