We planted tomato seeds and tomato plants with Sophie in the school polytunnel yesterday. We have to water them every third day so they will grow in to tomatoes for us to eat!

Mixing in Rang a Dó

Ms. Donohoe’s class worked in groups today to investigate what happens when we mix different substances with water. After making some predictions, we tested salt, sugar, flour, sand and coffee. We observed what happened before and after we stirred the mixtures. Some substances like salt dissolved in the water but others like sand did not. We drew the results after.

Scientist Steve visited Rang a Dó for Science Week today. They helped him with some really exciting experiments and made some very impressive predictions too. Some of them would love to be scientists themselves when they grow up! Thank you Scientist Steve!!!!

Ms. Donohoe’s class went on a Nature Walk through Doorly Park yesterday. We already learned all about the parts of trees and what job they have in science. Thank you to Shailagh Healy who told us stories about some of the trees. We brought leaf samples back to the classroom for leaf rubbings and labelling.

Energy Workshop

Lisa visited our classroom today to talk to us about energy. We formed an energy chain to show how energy moves from the sun to the wheat growing in the field, then the farmer harvests the wheat and it is made in to cornflakes in a factory. We eat the cornflakes to give us energy!

Afterwards we had a race to see which team could dress themselves well for the cold months ahead to keep heat energy inside their bodies!
