The Dentist

posted in: First Class News | 0

1st Class have been learning all about the dentist and minding our teeth.  We conducted an experiment to see what happens to our teeth enamel when acid is left on it.  We used eggs in our experiment, egg shells are just like our teeth enamel.  Look at our results!  We learned that water is the best drink for our teeth.  We also enjoyed creating dental instruments and our role play in the dentists.

Mrs. Ruddock’s and Ms. Leahy’s Junior Infants have been learning where butter comes from in Science class – all the way from the cow to the plate!

They made their own butter from cream and then enjoyed their homemade butter on a cracker!

Engineering: Newspaper Towers

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

This week in 6th Class we discussed Engineering and various types of engineers.  The children worked as Civil Engineers and created Newspaper Towers in groups.  The children had to build a tower that was as high as possible but had to withstand some strength tests.  Firstly they had to predict the height of their tower and then get to building!  The next day we did two tests, the first was a blowing test and in the second we used a hairdryer!!

This week the 6th Class theme for Irish was “Sa Bhialann”.

We have been learning and using lots of words and phrases all week.  In groups we prepared a “comhrá” on our whiteboards and set up our own “bialann”.  We arranged props, some of us got dressed up and then we performed our “comhrá” in front of the class!
