We have been very busy here in the Leavers class for the last couple of weeks, between trips away, projects, visits to the class and visits to different places around the town. Here are a few things that we have done:
We had great fun figuring out how to make a bulb light, then even more fun finding out how to make two bulbs light! We made lighthouses and made cars that we wired with our circuits and even had a visit from an electrician on safety around electricity and learning how to wire a plug.
We took a trip to Ardmore to visit the Round Tower, old church and went on the Cliff Walk.
Radio Station Visit
We organised a trip to the WLR studio in Dungarvan and met with Oliver Carroll. He showed us how he presents his afternoon show, records pieces and edits. We even got a chance to record a short message that he put on the radio that evening.
Travel and Transport
We invited a mechanic into the school to show us a few things about cars. He showed us how to change a wheel, check the oil, fill the oil and showed us all the parts under the bonnet. We all learned a lot...staff included!
