What material will keep ice lollies the coolest?
04 April 2019
Our class investigated 'what material will keep ice lollies the coolest?' We used 5 different materials: newspaper, tinfoil, a J-cloth, a plastic bag and kitchen paper. We made predictions for which ice cube would stay the coolest and which ice cube would melt the quickest. We wrapped each ice cube in the above materials and waited patiently. We discovered that the ice cube wrapped in newspaper stayed the coolest and the ice cube wrapped in kitchen paper was the quickest to melt. In order to make it a fair test, we ensured each material was the same size and ice cubes were the same size.

We had a chance today to play with Bee Bots, these are little robots that need coding in order to move. We made our own paths, followed patterns and created a maze in order to code our Bee Bots.🐝 There is also an app on the iPads that we will hopefully soon be working on to codes Bee Bots.

Day out at the Theatre
21 March 2019
The boys of First Class paid a really enjoyable visit to Galway’s Town Hall Theatre today. We took in Branar’s wonderful show, ‘Woolly’s Quest’.
The boys were delighted by the wonderful story telling on display, a fantastic set and the huge variety of unusual musical instruments used to tell the story of Woolly, the world’s bravest sheep.
We hope to visit again soon.
