Knex Workshop

On Friday, the boys had great fun taking part in a Knex workshop. We worked together in pairs to make different knex creations. Thanks to Sean for all his help.

We love to Read!

After our trip to the library, where the boys choose their own books we came back to school to get started on reading them. Some relaxing music also helps. 馃摎馃榿

Science Week 2019

This week we tried out different experiments for Science week. We really enjoyed our skittles experiment today. It was interesting to find out how much sugar is actually in a small portion of skittles.

Science Week

Science week got off to a great start in 3rd & 4th class today. We decided to find out whether or not our brains are affected when we eat chocolate and sweets. We watched a video clip about the parts of the brain.We then carried out an experiment to measure how fast our brains can see something happening and then react to it.We worked in pairs. One partner held a ruler in between their partners fingers. The ruler was held at the top at the 0cm marking. The ruler was then dropped and the partner had to catch it. We recorded the marking. Our next step was to eat chocolate and sweets and to carry out the experiment again. When we compared our reaction time before the chocolate to our reaction time after the chocolate we found that over all our reaction times had changed.Our finding were that 19 boys said their reaction time was quicker after eating chocolate and 5 said theirs was slower.
