The Importance of Friendship

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On April - 19 - 2018

“A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.” – Douglas Pagels

Over the last few weeks the middle room have learned a lot about the importance of friendship. For friendship week we had our secret friend project, where each child picked a name of another child in our class from the hat. Over that week they were to be extra kind to this person without them realising. At the end of the week each child shared some lovely facts they may have already known or even learned about their secret friend that week. This week we have concentrated a little more on the importance of friendship. The class were divided into groups to create a poem based on our topic. I think the results are fantastic and I’m sure you will all agree.

Following all our hard work we went outside to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine today.

Video: Middle Room ‘Sleepy Stargazer’

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On January - 18 - 2018

Philip yawns all day long!  Why?  Because he can’t resist gazing at the stars all night!  The other children complain that his sleepiness ruins their games. But one night when Philip is busy stargazing he spots a moving star, and he can’t resist following it.  While everyone else is asleep, Philip is busy meeting shepherds, sheep, angels and wise men – and then a baby king! It was one exciting adventure.

Video: Space balloon flight

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On July - 12 - 2017

Here is a video of our space balloon flight which was launched on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 from Frank and Mary Clarke’s farm. It reached an altitude of 28km. There are five layers to our atmosphere – Troposphere (up to 20km high), Stratosphere (20-50km), Mesosphere (50-85km), Thermosphere (85-600km), Exosphere (600-10,000km). Our balloon reached the Stratosphere.

Around 20km high ice-crystals are visible and the temperature drops to -51°C. In the Stratosphere the temperature actually increased with altitude to -40°C  as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is absorbed by the ozone layer. Had our balloon reached the top of the stratosphere the temperature would have risen to about -15°C  before falling sharply again in the Mesosphere. It landed 125km away between Castlepollard and Athboy on the farm of Eamon and Margureite Kelly.

Thanks to Frank and Mary Clarke, our sponsors CMS Distribution and DeCare Dental and chase car drivers Mary Lydon, Jan Wilkins and Angela Walshe.

The video of the flight is 360° so view it fullscreen to pan around. Control the 360 degree fullscreen video on your phone or tablet by moving your device.  To view it on a VR headset visit https://youtu.be/XPfoCtv5NSA or search for “Gortskehy in Space” using your VR YouTube app.

Middle Room School Tour

Posted by Ms. Thomas On June - 27 - 2017

The middle room went on their school tour today. We went to the Museum of Country Life in Turlough. The children were split into two groups and took part in two activities. First we got a tour of the Museum, learning all about life in the past. We saw lots of old objects and tools from life in rural Ireland years ago. We even got to try on some clothes from the past which was great fun!

 

We enjoyed lunch in Brambles Café.

After lunch, we had a ceramic painting workshop. We learned that cups and plates are made from clay, dried in a kiln, decorated with special paint and then glazed in order to make them shiny. We designed and decorated our very own ceramic plate with special ink. We really enjoyed this workshop!

 

We had a great day!

Science Week

Posted by Ms. Thomas On November - 18 - 2016

We celebrated science week in the middle room with some exciting experiments!

We created a rainbow using skittles and warm water. We put the skittles on a plate in different shapes, then we poured some warm water in the middle and watched as the colour slowly started to run from the skittles, creating a rainbow. We even created a Mayo-themed rainbow!

First we put the skittles on a plate. .

 

 

 

 

The warm water created a rainbow when the colours ran.

A mayo themed rainbow!

On Thursday we had fun with another interesting experiment. We created a volcano using bread soda and vinegar. We put some bread soda in a bottle and then added vinegar and watched as our volcano erupted! We learned that a chemical reaction between the the vinegar and bread soda caused the eruption.

Volcano Eruption! Volcano Eruption
