Science- Volcanoes and Dancing Raisins

2nd class were very busy lately carrying out some science experiments. First they investigated what would have if they put sultanas (or raisins) into water. Afterwards they tried the same experiment using 7up instead of water. Look at the pictures to see what happened. The girls also went making a volcano. They used vinegar and bread soda (and food colouring) and when they mixed together there was a reaction.

Science- Floating and sinking

Recently the children from 2nd class and senior infants were working together to discover which items would float or sink in water. They tried lots of items. Before putting the things in the water the groups discussed whether they thought the items would float or sink. The children also checked whether air can float. They put an empty bottle of water and a full bottle of water in the water. They discovered the empty bottle of water floats and the full bottle of water sinks. This shows that air floats. They also tried it with balloons- one filled with air and the other with water. 2nd class also explained to the senior infants how to make their hair stand up by using a balloon and creating static electricity.

There was a very special assembly this week in the school. It is 100 days into the school year and we celebrated all the boys and girls who haven't missed one day since we started. The lucky boys and girls got a certificate and were also told that they were going bowling later in the week. Ms. O Brien's 4th & 5th class did a presentation on Australia. They told us some wonderful facts about the country before singing and dancing along to the "Locomotion"
