Science Week continues in 6th Class with our gushing geysers experiment! The girls had great fun with diet coke and mentos sweets demonstrating how the carbon dioxide in the diet coke reacts with the mentos sweets. It was messy so we decided to take it outside!
We started off Science Week with an experiment called 'Make a rocket'. It involved a film canister, water, vinegar, effervescent tablets and blu tak. Our 'rockets' took off so quickly it was hard to catch them on camera but if you look closely you should see the action! Look in the top left corner of the first photograph to see how high we got our 'rocket' film canister to go!
We have started Food Dudes this week in 6th Class. We have been tasting lots of different fruits and vegetables and all of the girls have been winning prizes for their efforts. We have also been looking at Healthy Eating. Keep bringing lots of fruit and vegetables in the lunch boxes girls!
We have started our last set of gymnastics classes in Réalt na Mara. It was a great way to start the Winter term. Have a look at some photos below!
Well done 6th Class for all the effort made to dress up for our last day at school before Halloween! Your costumes were fantastic and we had a great day.Keep safe at Halloween and enjoy your break!
Our Maths skills were put to the test this week when we all set off in groups around the school on a maths trail. Our maths trail involved measuring, data, 2D shape, 3D shape and lines and angles. We had great fun and it was a perfect way to celebrate Maths Week Ireland. Have a look at some photographs below to see how we got on!
Coach Ciarán was back this week for more fantastic basketball coaching sessions.We had a busy first session where we revised what we learned last year and we worked hard! Looking forward to learning more basketball skills next week!
This week in Science we were looking at sound and how sound travels. We had fun investigating sound using glasses, bottles and water. Have a look at our pictures!
Summer is over and we started back to school this week! It is our last year in Réalt na Mara and we know it is going to be great! Lots more fun as well as more responsibility this year. We are ready for it! There was great excitement at break time this week when we all got a chance to have some fun with the new outdoor playground markings and games. Have a look at our pictures to see what we got up to!
