Celtic Book Fair and Science: a Busy Week in November
Many thanks to Ms. Claire and Aisling Foley for organising a wonderful book fair. They were helped by parents in the hall each morning. The children were very excited and delighted to buy their favourite books or stationery. Of course, this is the best time of year to read books for pleasure at home. Snuggle up and enjoy. Shared reading, reading aloud or being read to, is an important activity that develops literacy skills, enhances concentration, widens vocabulary and enriches our imagination.
Fifth Class used baking soda and vinegar reaction to make the volcano erupt. Baking soda and vinegar react to neutralise each other ( vinegar is an acid and baking soda an alkali ) releasing carbon dioxide which is the bubbles of gas you see. They added a little washing up liquid to make the foam becomes thicker, like lava!
Sixth Class predicted their inertia activity and then recorded the action on their ipads. See their videos are on our CaherleaheenNational School facebook page.
