Eruptions in Room 13

Room 13 have been learning about rocks and volcanoes. We made a volcano in class using water, vinegar, bicarbonate soda, washing up liquid and food colouring. This chemical reaction showed us what it’s like when volcanoes erupt and spew molten rock.

They look great!

 

Room 9 – WW2 dioramas

Room 9 have been busy learning about WWI in History and about trench warfare. We then took our knowledge of the trenches fro History and used it to make 3D models for an Art project! Check out some of the great dioramas we created!

Science in Room 13

We had a great time investigating internal organs and the skin. Each group focused on one organ and presented it to the class. Did you know that your intestines are the length of two tennis courts?!

Learning from an explorer in Room 17

Room 17 really enjoyed their trip to Rathmines Library where they learned all about Paul Strzelecki, the Polish explorer who helped many Irish children during the Great Famine. What an informative morning we had!

The boys and girls in Room 1 were so lucky to be able to visit the Little Museum of Dublin on St. Stephen’s Green today.

We saw lots of artifacts that have been donated to the museum by Dublin people.

We got to visit the U2 room and learn all about this famous Dublin band

We then got to play in St. Stephens Green playground and we even supported the farmers in their protest at St. Stephen’s Green.

It was a super day!

Working on our presenting skills in Room 1

We were learning about different counties in Ireland and each made a PowerPoint presentation about a different county.

We then used our oral language skills to present our PowerPoints to our classmates.

Well done everyone – we learned lots of new facts about Ireland and its counties!

Science Week in St. Louis

We all went to a cool science show this week. We learned all about different scientific experiments and how different chemicals work!

It was great fun – Thanks to Mr. Coghlan for organising it for the whole school!
