The Middle Room learnt about the Solar System and Earth in Space. They learnt that the earth travels around the sun and about the different planets in our Solar System. They learnt about the northern and south hemispheres. As a result of this project, each student created 3D dioramas of the Earth in Space. Watch the video below to hear about what they learned and also how to make these amazing dioramas.
Eco Brick and Fundraiser for Seal Rescue Ireland Eco bricks are an innovative way to reduce plastic in our oceans. Banogue NS will participate in this exciting project to bring awareness of plastic consumption to our students and help support a greener planet. Each child will be given a 2 litre bottle of water. We are asking that each child fill their bottle with soft plastics used by them in their daily lives. Wrappers, food labels and such plastics can be squashed and put i

4th, 5th and 6th studied the variety and characteristics of humans. They were develop a simple understanding of the structure of some of the body’s major internal and external organs, including the skeleton. They were able to incorporate Maths as part of their Science lesson. They made life-sized skeletons by measuring themselves. They displayed their life-size skeletons in their classroom.
The Junior and Seniors Infants are trying to look after and attract some feathered friends to the school grounds. They made bird feeders with Ms. Mannix. They used pipe cleaners and cheerios. As well as being a great science activity, it was a great way of practicing our fine motor skills!
Taking place from 27 February – 5 March, STEPS Engineers Week encourages young people, their teachers and parents to explore the creative and limitless world of engineering. The pupils of Banogue NS took part in Engineers Week this year and engaged in a number of hands on activities which combined different curricular areas including science, engineering, maths, art and design. As part of Engineers week, the Infant class took part in a Tower building activity with Ms. Mannix.
Junior and Senior Infants were challenged by Ms. Costelloe to design and make a
3D tower for teddy to climb up. They had a variety of materials including playdoh, matchsticks, spagetti and cocktail sticks. The tower had to be freestanding. The children came up with lots of different designs for their towers. Another day, they were challenged to design a playground for themselves. The children were given strips of paper and encouraged to find interesting ways to bend, twist,
