First Holy Communion Room 16

Congratulations to the boys and girls in 2nd Class who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday, 21st April. It was a fantastic day and the children worked incredibly hard to prepare for their special day. Many thanks to Fr. John for all his help all year to get the boys and girls ready for the sacraments of First Communion and Reconciliation. Ms. Begg, Mr. O’Neill and the school choir deserve special thanks for their wonderful singing on the day!

Here are some photographs from the children’s big day!

2nd Class love science!

Here are some of the science experiments we did in room 9. We experimented with sound vibrations. We used elastic bands and put them around containers. when we plucked the elastic bands we could see the sound vibrations!

We also looked at materials and change and what happens when we mix corn flour and water. Finally, one of our favourite experiments was making butter. We shook cream in containers until it turned to butter. We discovered that when we added a marble to the container it made the butter quicker. We even tasted the butter- it was yummy!IMG_2460 IMG_2457 IMG_2455 IMG_2458 IMG_2454 IMG_2451 IMG_2461 IMG_2463 IMG_1711 IMG_1712 IMG_1714 IMG_1716 IMG_1713 IMG_1718 IMG_1719 IMG_1720 IMG_1722 IMG_2839 IMG_2836 IMG_2840
