Rang a 6 explored series and parallel circuits involving bulbs, buzzers and motors (Energy & Forces).

We also studied the body’s digestive system and tuned into a wonderful SFI online tutorial called foodoppi. We learned how important all our senses are when it comes to eating. We also watched tutorials on forensic science and water quality (Living Things).

Rang a 5 had great fun and learned lots while investigating reflection and refraction of light (Energy & Forces).

Rang a 4 were very busy exploring the amazing work of famous scientists.

Rang a 3 investigated transpiration in plants (Living Things), created lava lamps (Materials & Change) and researched famous scientists.

Rang a 2 explored the impact of oil spills on our seas and oceans. They also simulated an oil spill with a class experiment, highlighting the importance of keeping our seas unpolluted (Environmental Awareness & Care).

Rang a 1 looked explored gravity, slopes and speed. We used marbles and toy cars to create ramps. It was totally chaos but SCIENTIFIC chaos! We also built some marble runs (Energy & Forces).

Naí Shín were very busy exploring the properties of household materials like paper, cloth, tissue, wood, foil, plastic and glass. We discovered that some materials absorb water and other repel water. It makes sense now that rain jackets are not made from paper!! (Materials & Change)

Naí Shóis investigated the Robin under the strand Living Things. We also explored the human skeleton. Ms. Madden demonstrated a fabulous experiment using skittles to show how sugar dissolves in water (Materials & Change).
