Venue: Roundwood National School
Day: Mondays

14:00 – 14:50 for Infants

This term we are going to introduce the children to zoology and then space science.
In zoology the children will do an observation of a live animal, investigate birds and their beaks, dissect a chicken wing (for health and safety reasons it will be cooked in advance ) and a number of experiments relating to bees.
In space Science they will learn about the relative size of the planets and the relative distances between them. We will study the moon, its orbit, its effect on the tides. We will make space food. We will consider the challenges for colonising Mars and see if we can grow plants in a carbon dioxide environment.

    Everyone must be safety conscious at all times.

    No one is allowed to leave the venue without permission from the leaders.

  • Cancellation by Customer - Ongoing clubs

    If a child is unable to attend due to illness we try to accommodate the child at an online class in the same week.

    In the event of a red weather warning, closure due to Covid-19  or other force majeure any classes that are unable to go ahead in the venue will be held at the regular time in our Zoom classroom.

    If we have to cancel a class for other reasons the class will be  rescheduled.
