This week we are celebrating Science Week in First and Second class.
The children started with an exploration of materials used to build houses and chatted about making their own houses.
Linking with Art, the children are creating diorama's of their chosen room out of shoe boxes. They'd give Dermot Bannon a run for his money!
On Tuesday they had lots of fun making "Bubbling Potions" and discovered that when you combine vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, carbon dioxide is formed which creates an explosion. There was almost another explosion later that day at the sight of the mess we left.
First and Second class continued exploring the world of Science this week. The children made rafts to help the Three Billy Goats cross the river without having the cross the bridge and meet the scary troll. They discovered which materials made better rafts and which ones were not so suitable.
The children continued learning about houses and homes too and started creating their diorama's out of shoe boxes. They had lots of fun doing this.
Well done 1st and 2nd class.
Have a lovely weekend,
The children in 1st and 2nd class have been working really hard at improving their writing and learning to use cursive handwriting. This week's Handwriting Hero's are Aoibhe Lyons and Ellie-Mae O'Brien from 2nd class. Well done girls!
Junior Infant's had a very busy week this week as they were hard at work in the doctor's surgery in Aistear and they completed experiments investigating floating and sinking. Take a look at our Science week page and our Infant's page for more pictures.
Third and Fourth class also carried out a range of fascinating experiments for Science week.
The teachers in our school will regularly post new blog posts keeping you up to date with all that is happening in Scoil Teampall Toinne.
