There was great fun and great learning going on in St. Brigid’s & St. Patrick’s school last week. We celebrated Space Week with a wide range of activities. The infants learned about Space through Aistear, designing and making rockets. They also took part in a cosmic space yoga session. The third and fourth classes engaged in ‘space coding’ through Scratch. Mission badges were designed by Mrs Dolan/Ms Troy’s third class. Ms. Fitzpatrick’s First Class used play dough to design space aliens. Ms. A. Kennedy’s sixth class designed and made rockets that they could make fly through the air. Ms. Rooney’s second class did some space themed Art and Mrs. Hamill read a space themed story with the class.
Space is always a popular topic in school. The children learned about our world, the planets of the solar system and the realities and wonders of the Universe around them.
