Our school was so lucky to have a Science Presentation by Paddy Madden, a Lecturer on Social Environmental and Science Education at Marino Institute of Education.
We loved listening to Paddy’s stories about the plants, animals and mini-beasts of Ireland. He showed us lots of interesting plants, bugs, shells, rocks, animals homes, insect hotels – so many many things! We could listen to Paddy forever!
St. Fiachra’s SNS and Belvedere College participate in a joint Science event each year in our school. The secondary school boys present many different Science Experiments to our Third Classes. The Third Classes participate in hands-on activities during these presentations.
Science Buzz is an annual event in our school and is a very enjoyable experience for students in both schools.
Down below we can see photos of the Rocket Launches!
There were wonderful Maths Display noticeboards in many areas of our school during Maths Week. They were bright and colourful with so many interesting mathematical facts on display. We learned so much from these noticeboards.
During Maths Week we all enjoyed a Maths Table Quiz in our classrooms. We worked in small groups and had great fun working together on the answers to the questions which were shown on our Interactive White Boards.
During Maths Week we became very aware of evidence of Maths all around us.
We hadn’t really noticed before but when it was brought to our attention, we noticed Maths everywhere! We had lots of posters around the school illustrating Maths in our environment. We discovered Maths everywhere!!
Third Classes are very busy planting and maintaining the flower beds in the school courtyards. These flower beds make our school look so pretty and colourful. Lots of watering and weeding to be done on a daily basis to care for the flowers and plants. What great gardeners we have in St. Fiachra’s SNS!! Our brightly coloured flowers attract lots of butterflies, bees and insects.
