Commiserations to the 6th class debating team who took park in the West Cork education centre debate against Knockskeagh. We were proposing the motion “We should only eat food produced in Ireland”. Sadly, they did not progress to the next round. Congratulations to everyone involved! You did the school proud!!
They learned all about gravity and forces and made paper rockets and had a competition to see who’s could fly the furthest – Congratulations to our winner Doireann – her rocket flew 4 meters!!
In Geography we learned about Mexico: learning a dance and a song and we also made Mexican maracas!
In Science we made wag-the-dog levers and investigated simple machines that use levers, gears, screws, wedges, inclining planes and wheels and axles.
