Self Expression Day
We had great fun dressing up as people we admire and expressing ourselves on the last day before the midterm break. Check out some of our cool costumes! :)
Aistear Time At The Doctor's Surgery
We love Aistear in our class. Have a look at the fun we had doing role play in a doctor's office, creating some tools that the doctor uses with playdough such as a stethoscope and drawing some patients at a doctor's surgery.
We did lots of experiments for Science week in our class.
Here we put skittles of different colours in a circle around a plate and poured warm water on top. A rainbow gradually started to appear. It was so much fun to watch!
This experiment is called 'Storm in a cup'. Here we put water in a jar and on top put some shaving foam. We mixed some water and blue food colouring into a bowl and then poured it bit by bit on top of the shaving foam. The shaving foam acted as the clouds and when the clouds could not hold any more rain, the storm happened.
Dancing Hearts - this was a great experiment that we did in small groups. We got a cup of 7up and some love heart sweets. We placed the sweets into the cup and watched as they danced in the fizzy 7up!
We were so lucky to have Cormac's Mum come in and do a fun experiment using flowers and food colouring in our class. She placed the flowers in the food colouring mixed with water and we left the flowers on the window ledge for a few days and watched as the petals changed to the same colour as the food colouring. The stem had soaked up the coloured water and changed the white petals to a different colour. Science is so much fun!!!!!
Fun with our musical instruments
We made some instruments at home using recyclable materials and we experimented with them in class along with some of the instruments we have in school already. We created a song in our groups and played it for the class.
