Information on the competition can be found on http://www.miniscientist.ie/?page_id=541

Children will be working in groups. 

Children can find helpful tips and resources on various topics/experiments on  http://www.education.com/science-fair/elementary-school/


Children should choose a topic area and begin some research and establish a suitable research question i.e. what they want to find out.

We kindly ask that you enable your child to work individually or collaboratively with their peers. Adults can guide, monitor and support their work where necessary.
 
I will post further updates here soon. Any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask me.

Here is a list of some suitable websites to help with their research and brainstorming:

Hi all,

a very warm welcome back to 5th Class! I hope everyone had a well earned break over Summer. This year the format for homework will be slightly different. The children will receive homework per night rather than per week. This may understandably be a frustrating transition for the children but is important in preparing them for moving forward through the 5th Class Curriculum.

Homework for Monday 4th is as follows;
Master your Maths p. 6 Day 1 (Qs1-18)
Cloze Procedure Sheet (on Recycling)

Regards,
Shane.
