Hello Parents and Scientists,
Welcome to all our new scientists, we are very excited to starting a science club in Scoil San Eoin Redcross. The new term of Science Club will be starting on Thursday the 6th of June. This email contains some important information about Science Club this term, (Class Times, Science Club Collection/Meet Up, Science Teachers and Contact Info, Club Dates and other important information.)
Junior - Senior Infants: 14.00 -14.50
1st - 6th Class: 15.00 -16.00
The Science Teachers:
The science teacher will be Christine Campbell. Should you wish to contact her at any stage you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can phone us at the office on 040440563.
Science Club Dates:
Science club this term is 3 weeks long and the dates are as follows:
June 6th, 13th, 20th
We have found that in all our afterschool clubs the children are often hungry after school and find it hard to concentrate. We recommend that everyone brings a science snack to eat at the beginning of science club while the teacher is introducing the science experiment.
Science Coats and Safety Glasses:
Sometimes our experiments can be a little bit messy in Science Club. To protect everyone's clothes and school uniforms we recommend that every scientist brings in an old large t-shirt that they can pull on over the clothes that they are wearing. Alternatively, if you wish, you can buy a children size science lab coat from us for a cost of €20. Similarly we recommend that safety glasses are worn while carrying out the experiments. If you have safety glasses at home, please bring them along, alternatively you can purchase safety glasses from us for €5. Please contact us if you would like to place an order for either a lab coat or safety glasses. If you have already placed an order it will be handed out on the first day of Science Club.
We are delighted to announce that we have a "Parents Page" on our website. On here you will find a short blog about each experiment explaining what the class got up to in science club, what they learnt, discovered and even a few photos and videos of their experiments! There are some experiment procedures so that you can try out the experiments together at home! The page is password protected and the code to log in is "Autumn18" (the "A" is uppercase) - https://anyone4science.com/parents-page/
We are all looking forward to an exciting term of science!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us, we would be delighted to help. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 6th.
All the best,
Niamh Kelly Senior Science Outreach Executive0404-40563
