Pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed Space Week 2017 at Edmondstown NS! Ms. Wallnutt’s Junior and Senior Infant Class created a wonderful rocket display while Ms. Cooney’s Third and Fourth Class designed an amazing solar system.
As part of our participation in the national Space Week 2017 programme, Edmondstown NS also received a unique image of the moon from Blackrock Castle Observatory!
Space Week 2017 has kicked off at Edmondstown NS! 5th and 6th class began by learning some key facts about the planets in the Milky Way. Pupils learned about the relative volumes of each planet and used fruit to compare them. We used DK Findout on our school laptops for research.
We also learned about the effects of space travel on astronauts’ bodies. Check out this link below for yourself at home for more information!

Ms. Wallnutt’s Infant classroom was pleasantly surprised to spot a visitor at the fence!
Ms. Collins’ 1st and 2nd Class recently conducted a science experiment to explore how water travels up plants. Using celery stalks in jars of water mixed with food dye they were able to observe this phenomenon very clearly!
