This week children are working hard designing their own boats. Watch this space to see how they get on....
We have been learning all about animals that live in Ireland. Did you know that a squirrel lives in a drey? Did you know that animals that come out during the day and sleep at night are called diurnal animals? We discussed deer, bats, squirrels, pygmy shrews and hedgehogs. We think they are all fascinating creatures!
Last week , we conducted an experiment- we poured liquid over some paper trees and left them for 24 hours. When we returned the next day , look what we found....
Daragh Cullen spotted some great changes ! He noticed there are now some small, white roots growing . Well observed Daragh :)
Today , we have planted a hyacinth bulb in our classroom. We have placed it in a glass jar so we can see the roots growing. We filled the jar with water and have placed the jar near the window so it receives some heat and sunlight. This image is what we hope will happen and is taken from www.bulbsdirect.au

Living Things : All about me
This month in science we are examining 'Living Things' with a particular focus on 'Human Life' and 'Myself'.
We did three experiments in class.
We had great fun trying out these experiments! Click on the link here to try them again at home. Always ask an adult for help .
Every Breath You Take
This week we have been learning all about our 'windpipe' and 'our lungs'. We recorded how many breaths we took in 30 seconds.
Afterwards , we conducted a 'Fair Test' to see what happened when we exercised a bit more.
We predicted what we thought would happen and we recorded our results.
We tried running on the spot, jumping, walking and hopping. After 30 seconds we stopped and had a break.
We analysed our results at the end .
