We designed bridges using only paper, Sellotape and paper clips. A toy car was able to travel across them!
Good luck to the 6th class students who are doing the entrance tests for Ardgillan Community College and for Balbriggan Community college.

I learned about this website through SeomraRanga.com. Click on the image to go to the Help My Kid Learn website.
This website was developed as part of the National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy among Children and Young People 2011 — 2020 by the
Department of Education and Skills.
The website’s purpose is to provide fun activities that parents can do with their children to develop their literacy and numeracy. It includes general information, fun activities and useful tips. Help My Kid Learn is a website where people can see that supporting a child’s literacy and numeracy development is a natural, easy and fun activity that can be integrated into any part of their day.
You can choose to browse the site depending on the age of the child: 0-2, 3-4, 5-7, 8-9 or 10-12. Within each section there are suggestions for activities under the headings Talk, Play, Read, Write, Count. Some are tips, others are links to websites, activities or ebooks.
In spring our class will be going swiming it will be really fun the swiming place that we are going to is Gormanstown. Today is water day and everyone is wearing blue, teacher sends people to go to the hall to make boats.The choir won the Compation in Drogheda and they got a night off homework. We are learing to conserve water because last year we spent 8,000 euro on water. This week we were learing 2s and 4s and we were learing about the stone age.we leared new song called first you click your fingers. We are doing gaelic with Barry.We might get the water flag.When we were at the hall we thought Miss Mc Niclos was the best.
Yesterday in Maths we did Capacity. We had to guess how much water could fit in the different size bottles and shapes. There was a 2litre, 1litre, 1litre 500ml, 1litre 50ml and 500ml bottle. It was hard to guess the right amount because the small ones held more than we thought!!!
