Over the past few weeks we have been learning about the Chinese New Year. 2015 is the year of the Sheep (Ram)
We made paper lanterns, dragon puppets and lucky decorations, had a go at writing our name in Chinese, as well as making a story book about why the Chinese New Year is called "The Great Race"

Mr Molloy and Ms Heppenstall brought us over to the science lab where we learned about energy.

We then had great fun examining how far air propelled cars could travel.

We were put in teams and had to measure how far the cars moved over three turns.

It was great fun .

We came in Una's  car along with Grainne and her son. When we got there we went to a bench to eat the delicious chocolate chip cookies that Grainne brought for us. When we finished we went to RJs and stayed in a classroom with the other schools that were participating. Overall we got eleven points which put us into 4th place out of six which is our best score yet. After the chess, Rathgar gave us treat bags and we went home! THE END

This week fifth class painted objects using  pointillism. We were inspired by Aboriginal paintings. We did so by dipping the end of the paintbrush into paint and making many dots on the sheet. We drew things like birds, fish, snakes, dingos, lizards, Ayers Rock and various shapes.

Today in Infants we joined Manorbrook Montessori  and made a Volcano erupting experiment
 
What you'll need:
  • Baking Soda (make sure it's not baking powder)
  • Vinegar
  • A container to hold everything and avoid a big mess!
  • Paper towels or a cloth (just in case)
 
Instructions:
  1. Place some of the baking soda into your container.
  2. Pour in some of the vinegar
  3. Watch as the reaction takes place!
 
What's happening?
The baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a base while the vinegar (acetic acid) is an acid. When they react together they form carbonic acid which is very unstable, it instantly breaks apart into water and carbon dioxide, which creates all the fizzing as it escapes the solution.
For extra effect you can make a realistic looking volcano. It takes some craft skills but it will make your vinegar and baking soda eruptions will look even more impressive!
