Volcanos

posted in: Fifth Class News | 0

Ms Hall’s 5th class have been very busy creating volcanoes using papier mache after learning all about Pompeii.  We made these using newspaper, a plastic bottle, pva glue and some water.  It took us two weeks to make the volcano.  On the third week we painted them.

Lastly, we carried out a science experiment to see the reaction between the baking soda and vinegar.  We added red food colouring for effect. The results were very cool!

Archaeologist

Fifth class were lucky to have a visit from Frankie an archaeologist.  We heard about many stories of how Frankie found various amazing artefacts on her travels.  We got to try on two of her helmets and saw lots of different types of teeth!  We really enjoyed the workshop and now have a much better understanding of the day in the life of an archaeologist!

Fifth  Class had a fantastic day in Causey Farm on their school trip!  We looked at all the animals – horses, lambs, lamas and alpacas.  We had great fun blowing bubbles too.

We were most excited for bog jumping!!  We took a tractor to the bog and got straight into jumping.  It was so messy but we had the best fun 😀

Norman times

We have had a fun few weeks in 5th class as we learned about the Normans.  We had a visit from Frankie, the archaeologist who brought in lots of exciting artefacts.  We got to try on the helmets and hold ancient weapons!  As part of our research, we made Norman Castles and family crests.  We even tried a dish from the Norman times – we didn’t enjoy it very much!!

Well done on the great work!

5th Class Hockey Tournament

Divine Word kindly invited Taney 5th class girls to play a hockey match last Friday in TRR.  Two six a side teams donned Taney hockey tops for the first time and played two matches each.  The girls played great and had a fab time, winning a couple and losing a couple.  A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon despite some rain showers!  Looking forward to seeing the girls in their Taney hockey tops again in 6th class!

On Monday Fifth class went on a school tour to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and The Jeannie Johnson Tall Ship.  The tour guides were very impressed with our knowledge about The Great Irish Famine.  We had a fantastic time and loved showing off all the information we learned in school.

An explosion of fun in 5th Class!

posted in: Fifth Class News | 0

We learned all about volcanoes in 5th class and got to make our own!  We used bottles as our base and then used glue and newspaper to create the volcano shape.  Next, we painted them and let them dry.  Finally, we got to do the explosion!  We mixed baking soda, vinegar and red food dye and watched the volcanoes erupt.  Making the volcanoes was so much fun and we enjoyed the eruption, even though it was really messy (and everything smelled like vinegar)!
