Volcanic explosions!

We used bicarbonate of soda, warm water and vinegar to make our volcanoes explode. 

P5/6 visit The Tropical Ravine in Botanic Gardens

On Thursday 24th January 2019 we set off on a one mile walk to The Tropical Ravine in Botanic Gardens. When we arrived we were taken around on a tour where we got to see lots of interesting trees, plants and a beautiful waterfall. Did you know that some plants can be used for medicine!? We also learnt some history about the Botanic Garden area of Belfast. We are looking forward to continuing our learning through some drama workshops in the next few weeks. Watch this space... laugh  

We had a special visit from Noel on the Waste Beater Bus. Our class took part in a fun interactive quiz using keypads to choose the correct answers and were able to discuss the topic of waste. We had a great morning! 

Practical science in the classroom. We had great fun learning about the mummification process used by the Egyptians. We used this knowledge to test mummification on a tomato. 
Primary 5 & 6 participated in an interactive anti-litter workshop delivered by Belfast City Council. We now recognise the importance of recycling and keeping our local community clean.
