This month in Mr Smyth’s First Class the children were learning about static electricity.
The children carried a number of experiments using balloons.
Check out what happened when they rubbed a balloon on a wool jumper and brought it close to running water. We made it bend magically!
It shows the power of static electricity!
Suzanne from Dublin City Council Parks came to talk to 5th and 6th class about an initiative being run by DCC which aims to make parts of the city greener and more environmentally friendly; this could be through planting trees, bushes, flowers or other plants, or simply by making a few changes to make our neighbourhoods greener, safer and nicer places for children and adults to play and live in.
Stoneybatter Greening would like to hear family ideas; full details and submission form is available here. http://www.dublincity.ie/greeningstoneybatter Feel free to chat with your children about how your area could be greener! Submissions deadline is the 3rd of December.
Parent and Teacher meetings will take place on Thursday 14th and Thursday 21st of November for children from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. The class teachers and support staff are looking forward to meeting with parents and guardians to discuss all the progress that the children have made so far. If you are unable to attend these meetings, please let your child’s teacher know so that a meeting can be arranged for another date.
The children from 1st to 6th Class will finish school at the earlier time of 2:15pm on Thursday 14th November only.
