Learning about Volcanoes-2nd Class

Yesterday, as part of our learning about Italy, 2nd Class learned about Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. The children learned how a volcano is formed and why/how it erupts (the gases inside the volcano mix with the magma and pressure builds up inside just like shaking a fizzy drink and then opening the bottle). To explore this further, we took to the yard to mix the gas from a fizzy drink with mentos sweets (our magma) and much to our surprise, just like a volcano, look what happened.....

St. Pats (DCU) Storytelling Week

Some of the classes were lucky enough to be invited to St. Pats college to take part in some fantastic activities related to story telling. 2nd class went with 4th class today to a Harry Potter themed event where they got sorted into their houses and then played a quidditch game. It was fantastic and the children really enjoyed themselves!!!
