No Celts project

Hi guys,

There will be no Celts project due to the Intel Mini Scientist investigations that the children will be doing.

Intel Mini Scientist

The mini scientist competition is upon us again. As most of you are aware, our school placed 2nd in Ireland in last years competition. All children participate in the science fair. The children work in groups up to 4. The school science fair will take place on Thursday, November 16th. The school science fair will be judged by Intel staff. The children have started to come up with ideas this week that need to be finalised by next week. This will give them just over 4 weeks to work and develop their ideas, build models etc. Their idea's will be on display for the whole school, as every class has an opportunity to see their work.
Time will be allocated to project work in class, but children will have to further develop their ideas and projects at home. Adults can guide, monitor and support work where necessary. I appreciate your support and patience.

More Information and criteria can be found at:
 https://www.intel.ie/content/www/ie/en/education/mini-scientist-important-stuff.html

**Side note if any parents who work in science would like to come in during science week to give a talk or do some experiments with the class, please send me an email. You'd be very welcome!!

Bees and Trees project

Bees and Tree' project:

As some of you know Bio-diversity week is running from the 22nd to the 26th of May. As part of the week our class has been asked to do a project on either bees or trees. The children have partaken in  some research in class on bees and trees and most will have their topics already chosen.

Children's projects should:

- Be presented on a poster page (A2/A3) as they will be presenting them in class to others. (I've really enjoyed all the children's projects that have been in PDF/ PowerPoint form but when the projects are being presented the children won't have access to a computer)
- Be written or typed and printed.
- Include information and facts about the chosen topic.
- Have some part of the project about the environment or human interaction (for example if a child is doing about types of bees in Ireland they could include a piece in their project about how humans can help keep bee populations up)

I look forward to seeing all the projects as the children have chosen some brilliant topics!

Due date for the projects is the 17th of May (Wednesday of the week before Bio Diversity Week)
