Science week – part 2

Science week in the infant room

Just a couple of ‘mad scientists’ before entering the exploration dome which visited the school on Friday.

It was a big hit with the children and was a nice way to draw a lovely science week in first and second class to a close. 

Third and Fourth class enjoyed dressing up as crazy scientists on Friday

Launching balloon rockets in 6th class

The 5th class children had great fun during Science Week. We investigated how to make liquid (milk) become solid. How to separate pepper and salt when mixed. How to make cloud dough. What happens when you leave gummy bears in water? We also investigated our sense of taste without our sense of smell. 

Success and Celebrations

In Mick Neville Park on Thursday, November 11, Shanagolden NS won the West Schools Division 4 Football title, with a very exciting win over an excellent Feenagh NS team. 

Playing with the aid of the breeze in the first half, we were a little slow out of the blocks and Feenagh struck for two early goals. However, we worked ourselves back into the game to leave the half-time score, Shanagolden NS 0:3 Feenagh NS 2:1.

Down on the scoreboard and facing into the strong wind, everyone put their shoulders to the wheel and with all showing a “never say die” attitude and no little skill, we outscored a gallant Feenagh NS team to be victorious on a final scoreline of Shanagolden NS 1-8 to Feenagh NS 2-1.

Matthew Nestor lifted the cup for a panel who trained extremely hard since early October and represented themselves, their families and their school with great distinction. Well done to all!!

October Aistear in the Infant Classroom

The first Aistear theme this year in Infants was Halloween.
The four stations were:
> The witches den-children worked in a witches shop and cafe, cooking and selling potions and ingredients.

> Making potions-children created very imaginative potions using “blood”,  magic, rats, bats etc.

> Art-children made their own hedgehog using clay.

> Construction-children built their very own haunted houses.

Enjoy the pictures.
