Mr. Russell's 5th Class were celebrating Space Week Ireland 2019, part of World Space Week. The boys were learning lots about planet Earth, our solar system, and other interesting things about space, as well as doing some science experiments with a space theme. As well as all of that, they were joined on Skype by Juan Miro, who spent many years working with the ESA (European Space Agency). The class also Skyped with Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork to learn more about the stars in the night sky. Click any of these links to see what the boys were at for Space Week 2019!
