6th class parents joined us for their special science assembly. The science display was all about the human body with research on topics as diverse as the brain, the genetic influence on fingerprints, the structure of blood and how samples are taken, diabetes, asthma and how to live with it amongst many others. We all felt we were emerging from the doctors surgery rather than the assembly room at the end. We knew more but weren't quite sure we wanted to know THAT much.
Fantastic research, model building, experiments and displays accompanied the projects. It was both entertaining and a real scientific tour de force by sixth class.
6th class finished their assembly with the cup song as gaeilge - a miracle of rhythm and co-ordination.
