Conure Egg

Mia, very kindly brought in an egg that her pet bird had laid. Her bird is a conure and its egg is very tiny! It was safely wrapped in a little box and we were very careful when we were looking at it.

We had never heard of a conure bird, so we looked them up on the internet. They look like the birds in this picture.

 

 

 

Sound

We carried our some fun expeirments today to learn about sound!

We used tuning forks dipped into water to show that sound causes vibrations!

We used elastic bands to create mini string instruments!

We used straws to make mini wind instruments!

Finally we made a ‘string telphone’ to test whether sound would travel along a piece of string! It did.

We made lots of of noise! (Click on the link to see more pictures.)

 

National Gallery & Natural History Museum Trip April 2017

Everyone in 5th Class was lucky enough to visit the National Gallery on Clare St. and the Natural History Museum on Merrion Square. The tour in the Gallery was terrific, especially considering how busy the Gallery was.

We had a terrific time in the Natural History Museum and saw lots of amazing Irish and international, especially the Hoopoe bird that was found here in Balbriggan in  1903

Our Guide Sarah was  terrific!

Kate was fantastic too!

 

The sculpture Gallery was cool,Hercules was on legendary demigod!!!! But Teacher struggles taking pictures in mixed light settings.

Science Week Experiments

We’ve been enjoying science week this week. We’ve done lots of experiments. 

We put an egg into vinegar and we’ve been watching what happens. The vinegar erodes the egg shell.

We put ‘Mentos’ sweets into Coke to see what happens – it exploded!

We put raisins into Seven Up to see what would happen. The gas in the Seven Up makes the raisins rise and fall.

We put warm water on ‘Skittles’ sweets to create a rainbow.

We recorded all our experiments in our copies.

We loved doing our experiments because we could eat and drink most of them when we were finished! Click here to see our video.

North County Outreach

halloween-trick-or-treatcollection
This is our St. Molaga’s sweet collection for North County Outreach. It was collected on the 7th and the 8th November. In Geography we learned about homelessness and how it has increased through out the years.
Ms Sullivan’s fifth class decided to contact North County Outreach to see if we could donate some of our Halloween candy. The next day we all made posters to ask the pupils of St. Molaga’s if they could donate at least one thing from their Halloween bag. Pupils from Ms Sullivan’s 5th class went around the school with notes and posters sharing our idea. In the next few days we collected five big boxes of sweets and treats. On Tuesday, 8th our teach
er drove the collection over to North County Outreach. They were thankful for our donations and we were happy to help with the organisation.hallowwen-treats2
