ST.E.M. with senior classes

posted 25 Nov 2019, 11:11 by Margaret Mullane   [ updated 26 Nov 2019, 03:50 by Eileen Barrett ]

Here is a taste of S.T.E.M with our senior classes.  
The theme this month is 'Plastic'.  
Our budding scientists, technological experts, engineers and mathematicians are busy investigating, recording, constructing and calculating.  
There were fifty pupils actively engaged in the S.T.E.M. hour and the only complaint is that they want more time at these activities. 
Some comments from our pupils:
 "We love S.T.E.M."
"Can we do S.T.E.M. everyday?"
"I love that we get to make design and make things ourselves"
"S.T.E.M. is cool!"

Well done to both Liscarroll and Churchtown National School football teams on a spectacular Sciath na Scol B3 Football Final played in Carrigoon Mallow this morning.  It was a thrilling contest from start to finish with both teams leading at different stages of the game.  

The score at half time was 2-3 a piece.  Churchtown got the upper hand in the second half and
ran out winners on a score line of 2-8 to 3-3.  
Congratulations to Churchtown on your win.  

A sincere thanks to both sets of players for such a sporting final. Sincere thanks from all of us at Liscarroll NS to Mike Shanahan, Seamus O'Callaghan and Mick Dillon for coaching the Liscarroll boys.  
The sky is the limit for this bunch of lads as they all play together with Granard Gaels Juvenile club.   We wish them all every success in the future.

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.
