Posted by Diane On December - 18 - 2019

In school we have been making lego robots with Lego WeDo 2.0. The theme has been climate change. We made lego robots such as a flood gate and an electric car. It was great fun.

Lego WeDo 2.0

Posted by Dayna On December - 9 - 2019

We made a lot of things out of lego like Milo the robot, a water-gate, a slug and a windmill. We programmed then to move, change colour, make noise…

I really enjoyed making robots with Lego WeDo and can’t wait until next time!!

Lego WeDo 2.0 and climate change

Posted by Lily On November - 25 - 2019

We are building Lego robots with Ms. McDonald. We are building little robots that can move, play music and a lot more. We are also talking about climate change and how it is melting the ice. The temperatures on earth are getting warmer and the weather is getting more extreme all around the world. The sea levels are rising and we made a lego flood gate which shows how to keep rising water from flooding cities.

Sonic Explorations Day

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On April - 1 - 2019

As part of our Creative Schools Programme the pupils from the senior room took part in a sound workshop with Ed Devane today. Ed is an Irish multidisciplinary artist working primarily with sound. The children completed several activities throughout the day which included finding electro magnetic signals, working with a contact microphone to listen to sound vibrations, making recordings using an a digital audio recorder with various sounds from around the classroom. The class really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to the next stage of the workshop in early May.
