Higgledy Piggledy

The Cork Circus came to visit our school on Friday 10th December with their show Higgledy Piggledy. Pupils from Junior Infants to Third class enjoyed the performance. Three actors performed in a variety of sets interacting all the time with the audience, from the sea, to car washes and pirate ships.  Some pupils also joined in the performance. Everyone loved the show and look forward to seeing the Cork Circus again.

Science with Scott

When Scott came to the school last Monday 29th November, he showed

us what potential energy and kinetic energy was. He told us we knew

what it was already, he just showed us exactly what it was and how it

worked. Kinetic energy is the energy an item has when it’s moving.

Potential energy is stored energy.

Outside in the hall we made roller-coasters with foam sticks, paper

cups, marbles and masking tape. The roller-coaster was quite easy

to make. We had to stack four to five chairs and then we had to stick

the foam sticks on to the chairs, in whatever way we wanted.

Scott came up with different challenges e.g. make a roller-coaster

with a hill, with a loop and with a certain amount of cups. We had

great fun and received points for every challenge completed! We learned

a lot that day!!!
