Christmas decorations for Mowlam.
6th Class were asked to make Christmas Decorations for Mowlam. So they were challenged to construct a Snow Scene, from scratch. They were allowed to choose from many materials, such as cotton wool, card, ribbon, newspaper etc.. The following are the amazing results. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience. And we are feeling so proud knowing they will be displayed in Mowlam and we are bringing a little Christmas cheer to our community!
6th class thoroughly enjoyed Science Week this year. We watched about the progress of Science and Technology nationwide and world wide on RTE's Future Island. We investigated the 3 forms of matter, gas, liquid and solid. We also completed fun experiments in our pods. From an unleaking bag to an egg drop to which substance was the best coin cleaner! Here are a few photos capturing those moments.
We have been studying China and Ancient China in Geography and History. We decided to use clay to reproduce our interpretation of the Terracotta Army that was discovered in 1974. Pupils concentrated on design and features of soldiers, horses and chariots. Here are some images of their wonderful work.
