This year the theme for science week was, 'The Power Of Science'.
We investigated the power of chemicals by soaking an egg in vinegar. We predicted what might happen to the egg shell. After one day the hard egg shell turned soft and squishy like jelly.
We learned about the power of pressure with this can flip experiment! This shows us the pressure that airplanes use when taking off.
We explored the power of motion with this marble experiment. When a marble collides with a stationary marble the energy is transferred to the second marble.
Sarah came in to talk to the children about her work as a forensic scientist. Sarah said that a good scientist always asks lots of questions. She was very impressed with all the children who asked lots of interesting questions about examining clues from a crime scene. Sarah uses a microscope to examine DNA samples. She showed us a great powder analysis experiment. I think we may have a few future scientists in room 2a.
Sophie won our neat handwriting certificate this week! Look at her lovely writing. She always remembers capital letters and full stops.
Bhuaigh Julia Gaeilgeoir na Seachtaine. Ni raibh aon fadbh aici na frasai nua a usaid. Duirt si, 'chonaic me mala scoile sa phictiur agus ni fhaca me ceapairi sa phictiur'.
The Delightful Dolphins won table of the week with 23 points.
In maths today we were learning about angles and right angles. We looked for right angles in our classroom and around the school. A right angle is a quarter turn. It reminds us of the shape of the letter L.
