fifth and sixth class
On Saturday the 16th of January 2016, the pupils of 5th and 6th class were offered the amazing opportunity to participate in the RDS Primary Science Fair. Our project was "How big is a drop of water?" We carried out many experiments and did lots of research. We headed off to Limerick early in the morning and made our way to the exhibition. We arrived at the venue at 8:50 and when we got inside we started to set up our project. There were many slideshows that attracted us on that day. We all took our turn at the stand, where we informed the general public on our project. Everyone commented on how much they learned and how much they had enjoyed listening to us.
The judge thought we had put in amazing effort and commented on how confident, enthusiastic and competent we were. We were all so proud of how well we performed and felt very privileged at what we had achieved and were delighted to be participants two years in a row. The judge presented us with our trophy and gave us all certificates. When the day had come to an end we dismantled our project from our stand and headed back to Mayo after an excitement-filled day! We were all exhausted when we came back to The Neale and began to tell our families about our experience.
Spaghetti Building CHallenge
Fifth and Sixth class took part in a challenge to see who could build the tallest free-standing structure using spaghetti and masking tape. It was a tricky and tedious affair! Jennifer, Madeleine, Seán and Ronan represented the school in the Mayo Challenge which took place in the McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris.
