STEM with 5th & 6th classes

posted 7 Oct 2019, 12:29 by Margaret Mullane   [ updated 7 Oct 2019, 12:30 ]

This week we resumed STEM for 5th & 6th classes.  The theme was Energy & Forces.  
It was a very productive workshop as always and lots of investigation, adjustments, observations, predictions and recording took place. 
All 51 students were grouped, engaged and actively learning at their assigned stations.  There were many 'lightbulb' moments.  It was an enjoyable experience for all involved.  We can't wait to change stations next week.

Visiting Authors

This year with the implementation of the New language Curriculum we are placing a big emphasis on literacy. We were delighted to welcome Marc Seither Children's Author & Susy Flory New York Times best selling author of Thunder Dog, to speak in our school. The children were captivated by the two speakers and it definitely sowed the seeds for our upcoming authors in schools.
