5th Class - Class Work

25 – 29 May – 5th Class – Mrs Quinlan and Mrs Sheehan

9th Week of Working from Home!  We trust you and your families are continuing to stay well.

Remember: New week – Clean Slate, Fresh Start.

Whatever school work you managed to achieve last week, that’s fine.  Please do not feel the need to carry forward work into the next week.  We know that many of you are helping to mind younger siblings and doing some extra chores around the house too.

Keep sending in samples of your work, we enjoy seeing them and it gives us an opportunity to interact with you and provide some feedback.  Over the past few weeks we have seen wonderful examples of creative writing (Letter Writing and Instructional Writing), detailed comprehension answers, musical compositions (videos and audios), great examples of your STEM skills, Art work and plenty of book reports.  So, well done!

Hopefully the Daily Display of the work plan really helped you to manage your time, we will continue with that format.  As usual we have included some links to video tutorials as a means of remotely teaching you some new concepts.  They explain the topic / activity very well and also give you the opportunity to watch them a few times, if necessary.  Remember to click on the Blue Links to launch video tutorials and online applications.

This week we continue our journey through the History of Our Land, giving us a sense of our Irish History and Heritage, leading on to how the Irish People came to settle all over the world.  Gaeilge ‘Seachtain na Leabhar’ (Book Week), the concept of Time (analogue, digital and 24 hour clock) in Maths and some of its practical applications of use in our daily lives, and of course a STEM activity (creating your own Lava Lamp)!

This week is a 4-day school week, due to the June Bank Holiday.  You have Friday to Tuesday (5 days free of school work) and then back to School from Home on Wednesday 3rd June.

Remember to take regular breaks and plenty of socially distanced exercise.

Have a great week and stay safe, well and active

Mrs. Quinlan & Mrs. Sheehan

STEM Science Activity                    Home Made Lava Lamp

Watch the following Video Links

How to Make a Lava Lamp

You will need

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Food Colouring
  • Cooking Oil
  • A clean, dry empty soft drink bottle (large)/large glass jar

Steps:

1.    Pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda into the bottle of your jar/bottle
2.    Fill the jar almost to the top with cooking oil
3.    In another dish mix about 10/15 ml of vinegar with a few drops of food colouring.
4.    Pour that mixture into your oil.
5.    Shine a torch or solar powered spotlight into your lava lamp

The Science

Oil floats on the surface because vinegar is heavier than oil. Vinegar is denser than the oil. As the drops of vinegar fall through the oil to the bottom of the bottle, it reacts with the baking soda to make carbon dioxide gas.  The carbon dioxide gas rises to the top bringing the vinegar with it.
