2nd Class /Ms. Noctor

 

During engineers week, some girls in our class entered the ‘Build A Bridge’ competition in school. Well done to Doireann Walsh who was awarded first place from our class.

Congratulations to all who entered, there were some fantastic designs!

 

We are learning about Healthy Eating and where fruit and vegetable’s come from. How does it get to the supermarket for us to buy? Where and how does the food grow?

We entered the Incredible Edibles competition and received a growing pack for our class. We planted carrots, turnips, potatoes, chives, mixed lettuce and strawberries! We started in the classroom and with the help of Nathan Fox, we moved our seeds outside! Take a look at our journey so far:

 

Merry Christmas from Ms. Noctor’s 2nd Class!!!

During science week we looked at how quickly the coating on the outside of a skittle would dissolve and diffuse in various substances.

Skittles are coated in food colouring and sugar. When you pour water over the skittles the coloured coating dissolves spreading through the water.The colour and sugar dissolve into the water and then diffuse through it.

We tried it with cold and warm water, vinegar and 7up! We found that warm water dissolved and difused the colouring the quickest. Each substance dissolved the sugar eventually. Vinegar took the longest. Check out the results below:

We explored 3D shape and space during Maths Week. We worked on a project over a few days to construct castles from a variety of materials.

Today we did some Pumpkin Carving in groups! Scooping out the insides of a pumpkin is messy work. (Ms. Noctor helped by carving the faces!)

We went on a mini-beast hunt this week! We found loads of interesting creatures to study!

Did you know that slugs have four noses but only one foot?!
