A Portuguese Easter Cake

Look at the delicious Portuguese Easter cake
made by Tomás and his mum.
It looks, smells and tastes delicious.
It was such a surprise to see two boiled eggs (in their shells) in the middle of the cake!

More Hip Hop with Fabiane

We absolutely love our hip hop sessions with Fabiane.
We love the music and the dances.

It is such fun and such good exercise.
Even teacher joins in!

Pop Up Easter Chicks

 We made some fun pop-up Easter chicks.
We use forces to help the chick hatch.
We can push or pull the skewer to have the chick pop up from and back to his shell!
Happy Easter everyone!

Painting Easter Eggs

We traced round an oval template.
This became an Easter egg.
Some of us turned these eggs into Easter bunnies by adding ears and tails.
We used coloured pom poms dipped in paint to add colour.
They look great!

Book Fair

We will have the Tara Book Fair in our hall next week.
You are all welcome to come and look at the books and to buy them if you wish.
There is even a book token to allow your child to get a free book (or €1.50 off any book of their choice).

Dr. Malachy's Flashes and Bangs

Dr. Malachy Thompson is a chemist.
He came to visit us today to show us how interesting science can be.
He taught us a little about energy and forces:- we saw a balancing bird,
 saw magnets attracting and repelling
and looked at white clothes and teeth under UV light.
He also showed us some amazing chemical reactions:- he filled a canister with 30% Buthane, let it react with Oxygen and explode when a small electrical charge was applied.
We saw how to make elephant's toothpaste!

and best of all.....we saw how to make hydrogen,
 
and what happens when this hydrogen explodes (so impressive!)
We are all determined to be wonderful scientists now!!
A huge Thank You to Dr. Malachy.
