Le linn na seachtaine bhí gníomhaíochtaí Eolaíochta ar siúl ag na páistí. Seo roinnt griangrafanna a léiríonn cad a bhí ar siúl acu.

(Rang a 4,5 & a 6 investigating how much sugar a variety of drinks and foods actually contain.)

Trialacha éagsúla déanta ag na páistí go léir sa rang ag baint le bia, siúcra, uisce agus maighnéidí.
