1st & 2nd Class

Welcome to our page !!

 

  We hope you enjoy looking at a few photos of what we have been doing since September.

 

 

 

We planted sunflowers in our last term at school. Here are some of them. The tallest one is 2 metres 60 cm! The shortest one was 60 cm!

We dug up our school garden which unfortunatley went wild during the summer months. 

M.Máire enjoyed the good crop of potatoes.

Games from Long Ago

In our history we were learning about the games our parents or grandparents learned when they were young.

Cards was very popular and still is. We played cards in small groups and taught each others games we learned from home.

   

We made 2 D Shape pictures in art, after learning about 2D Shapes in our Maths

 

**Happy Halloween **

Food Dudes came to school  Nov 8th - 12th - we loved trying out all the different fruit and vegetables.

Science Week 



Robyn showed us how when you mix an acid with a base they react and cause a little explosion of bubbles...she used vinegar which has acid in it and baking soda which is the base. 

Here we put skittles in a circle and poured warm water into the bowl...the colours from the skittles released and formed a lovely rainbow effect, 

 

 

Danny brought in two balls of different size to demonstrate Energy and Forces. First he bounced the balls separately and we saw that the big ball has a bigger bounce in comparison to the smaller one.

By putting the small ball on top of the bigger ball and allowing them to fall to the ground allows the bigger balls energy to be passed to the smaller ball - which then makes it more powerful. 

Keelin is showing us the Gummy Bear experiment. You place jelly babies into a bowl of water and leave for a few days. The water will slowly go into the jelly babies and make them swell up to a bigger size. 

CJ showed us how fire needs Oxygen to stay lighting. He poured water into a bowl, lit a candle and then put a glass over it. When the oxygen within the glass was used up by the flame of the candle, the flame went out. Water was sucked upwards into the glass then as the flame tried to get more oxygen.

      

 

     

At the start of the week we got five slices of bread and we treated them in diffferent ways to see what germs are around us.

As you can see - the bread that was touhed with all the classes hands and the bread that was woiped on all the door handles showed up as most mouldy!! 

The one touched with sanitized hands was next, followed by soapy water. The clean and untouched bread still had no mould on it after two weeks!
