Space Week is Ireland’s newest national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week, in parallel with World Space Week, taking place from 4th to the 10th of October. The children in Mr. Higgins's class have started a project all about the various aspects of space. We are using books in the classroom, our library, people at home and the computer room to help find and gather information about the planets, orbits, the moon, the sun and the constellations we can see at night.
We discussed Neil Armstrong, Yuri Gagarin and some of the other information we already had as a starting point for this project. We are working either in pairs or on our own and we are really enjoying using some of the cool apps and websites that NASA and spaceweek.ie have available for kids to use.
4th and 5th had great fun dressing up this Halloween with some very spooky masks, make-up and outfits!
