Making Teabags

In Science we investigated which paper makes the best teabag. We used filter paper, paper towel, cling film and tinfoil to wrap loose tea leaves in. We discovered that filter paper works best.

Mr Mc Corry brought us on a nature walk around the school grounds. We looked at the different types of trees and leaves. We identified the leaves with our leaf dial.

Lemon Suds

In Science we made lemon suds with baking soda which is a base and lemon juice which is an acid. When mixed they react by bubbling up and producing invisible carbon dioxide gas. The bubbles are full of this gas.

Killone Abbey and Lake. On 28th June 2018 Fifth and Sixth Class Pupils headed off on a stroll to the wonderful monument in our locality, Killone Abbey. We didn’t just look at Killone Abbey historically today, we also put our geography and scientific skills to the test. We collected and identified mini-beasts, some foliage samples, some wild flowers and completed some rubbings on various surfaces. There was a lot of work to attend to and we all got stuck in measuring, sampling and collecting. We enjoyed some of the local myths associated with Killone. It was a wonderful experience and we will bring our families back at some stage to teach them all we have learnt.

Our theme for May was birthdays!
Birthdays are so much fun!
We made, painted and glaized our own clay cupcakes:)
We made a birthday bar graph to see how many birthdays there are in our class each month.
June had the most – there are 7 students in our class with birthdays in June!
We had fun learning birthday words and games:)
