Science

Science is one of our favourite subjects in St. Margaret’s National School. Throughout the year classes are busy exploring, hypothesising and experimenting. We cover a variety of hands-on experiments based on the four strands of the curriculum. 

  • Living Things
  • Energy and Forces
  • Materials
  • Environmental Awareness and Care

Each class hosts a science assembly during the year and this provides an opportunity for children to showcase what they have been learning as well as teach others new and exciting science facts. This page showcases all the wonderful scientific work done in our school. Read on to learn about what we have been up to since the beginning of the year.
