Mr Smyth’s 4th/5th Class have been examining the properties of 3-D shape. Check out some of the shapes they have tried to recreate using printable nets which they cut out and glued. Here is a fun 3-D shape game you can play at home: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/maths/shape_space/3d_shapes/play/
The pupils of 5th and 6th Class attended a Switch on STEM workshop in DIT Grangegorman recently. Switch on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) provides hands on workshops and resources for primary and secondary school pupils and teachers. The pupils really enjoyed the different activities and experiments that ranged from making slime, using forensic science to investigate a crime scene and investigating our sense of smell to name just a few. It was a fantastic workshop and definitely inspired a few future scientists!!
