In the Solas Room we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We have read about the River Nile, the Pyramids of Giza and also Tutankhamun (the boy-king.)
We looked at a slide show of pictures of Egyptian art and hieroglyphics. We found this very interesting. In art we constructed our own pyramids and our own Egyptian collars. We made the collars very colourful and glittery. We designed our own Egyptian masks, which was great fun. We loved learning all about Ancient Egypt and we are looking forward to learning about Ancient Greece next.

The Scientists of 4th/5th class were busy exploring the force of gravity. As part of the Junior Entrepreneur Programme the class was required to work effectively in small teams whereby each student would take on specific roles/tasks. Each team was assigned a Science experiment and their objective was to plan, design and make a sturdy shuttle using card, string, paper-clips, cotton-wool and a balloon. Once each shuttle was built, each team was given an egg (hard boiled to avoid mess!). The egg was then placed inside their shuttle before it was released from a launch height of about 5 feet. The best shuttle was determined by the egg that had the safest landing with no cracks to show for its journey! 🙂 We had great fun doing the launches at the end of the lesson so here are some of the best photos taken on the day.

“The pupils in B.M.M.S were full of joy on December 18th. Everyone wore their Christmas jumpers in exchange for bringing in €2 to help raise funds for a special cause. We all had very funky jumpers and even the teachers and SNAs wore wore Christmas jumpers too. It was one of the best days in school and Mr. O’ Donoghue took photos in each class. Here are some photos below”.
