Mad Scientists!

To celebrate Science Week, third class have been learning about liquids and density. Today we made lava lamps using oil,water, food coloring and fizzy tablets. We really enjoyed conducting the experiment. See our amazing results below!


On Friday morning we went on a trip to Dublinia. We all paid 5 Euro and we got a bus there.
On our way, we saw Christchurch Cathedral.
Our tour guide, Ian, met us dressed as a Viking.
We saw models of Vikings, one was a woman praying to their Gods. We went on a Viking boat and saw their chests. We went into a Viking house and saw their beds and fire. There were animals hanging in the house.
Then we went to the Medieval Times. There was a Black death and if you were bitten by a flea with it, you would die that day. If you got bitten by a rat with it you would die in 3 days. one third of the people in Dublin died of Black death. Children started work at the age of 7 or got married between the ages of 9 and 12. We learned about the barber surgeon and how he cured illnesses.
The most disgusting part, was that people would use a potty to go to the toilet in and then throw it out the window!
It was really interesting and we learned lots. We would recommend everyone to visit it.

Science Club Gets Loopy!

For the last few weeks the Rutland Street engineers have been designing, building and modifying roller coasters!


“We all learnt about force!! The marble needs speed to complete the loop successfully… and the best way to build up this force??? Gain some height!!”


Check out our inventions on the second floor!!!
