Christmas in Room 14

We have been having lots of festive fun here in room 14 in the build up to Christmas time. We would like to share some of the things we have been doing with our friends and families.

One of the things we love to do at Christmas time is to decorate the Christmas tree. We made paper ball reindeer as a decoration to take home to our Christmas trees. Another big tradition at this time of year is Christmas cards. We used finger painting and crepe paper to create cards with some of Santa’s reindeer on the front. We also made these fun elf envelopes to deliver our cards in.

            

        

As a festive treat last Friday and to warm up from all the ice, snow and cold weather we made some hot chocolate with Ms. Reidy. We poured our hot chocolate into the polar bear paper cups we designed the day before. We added marshmallows and chocolate chips to the top.  It tasted delicious.

We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas from all the boys and girls in room 14 and Ms. Reidy.

6th Class Willow Weaving

Last Tuesday and Wednesday Beth Murphy came into our 6th classes and taught us how to weave with willow.She showed us different types of Willow.She also showed us how to make a small Christmas Tree.

 

Step 1:

She gave us a thick piece of Willow to start our frame. We made a triangle with the Willow.

Step 2:

We used thin Willow to make the top of the tree by weaving it around the frame and trunk of the tree.

Step 3:

We used new willow to continue the tree and add colour.

Step 4:

 

 

We used buff willow to complete the tree.

 

Step 5:

When we finished, Beth helped trim the tree. We decorated our trees with ribbon.

 

 

Beth showed us a video about willow weaving and some of here pieces.

We enjoyed it and we would like to do it again.

Make Your Own Mini Pizzas

Miniature Pizzas

Last Friday we made some tasty mini pizzas with Ms. Reidy!

This is the recipe we followed to make them:

Method: 
1. We chopped the mushrooms and ham into slices (optional).
2. We rolled small handfuls of pre-made pizza dough into round pizza base shapes with our hands and two rolling pins.
3. We added a tablespoon of pizza sauce to the pizza bases and we spread it evenly around the centre.
4. We sprinkled some grated cheese (whatever cheese you like) on top and we layered our pizzas with your chosen toppings (We put ham. cheese and mushrooms on ours).
5. We placed them on a baking tray and put them in the oven for 25 minutes.

Now, we hope you enjoy our delicious home-made pizza recipe and recommend you try making them at home!

Rugby Season So Far

 

School rugby is back again for another year. We have four teams this year, A, B, C and D. The teams are made up of students from 3rd to 6th class. We have been training since Halloween and we have played two matches since then.

 

For our first match we travelled to Castleknock in Dublin. In this match it was only the A team playing because it was against 1st years. It was a very wet and windy day so the conditions were very hard to play in. After a tight first half Castleknock led by 5 points. We came back strong in the second half and pulled it back to a draw. They brought on their subs and that won it for them.

 

Training resumed on Tuesday and each team had a match against C.U.S the following week. Going into this match we were hoping for a win after losing our last match. The conditions were fine that day. The A team had a brilliant 1st half and by the time the whistle blew they were up 42-0. They kept their great lead in the second half and the game finished 75-0. We had the stronger teams on the day as three out of four teams won.

Well done to all the teams and we can’t wait for our next match!

Mini Scientist: How Healthy Is Healthy Food?

Our idea was to find out how much sugar is actually in protein bars . We chose this idea because we have been told that obesity has become a problem in Ireland. What we wanted to do to help is to try to find a way to make protein bars healthier, we chose protein bars because most people think they are healthy but they are not.

We researched to find out how much sugar is in each store bought bar by looking at the table at the back of the packet.

 

Recipe for oat bar:

Ingredients:

  • 350g of oats
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 180ml of almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Vanilla essence ( if wanted )
  • 1 tbsp of sweetener
  • A drizzle of honey

Method:

  1. Put oats into a bowl.
  2. Put wet ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Then stir.
  4. Add your dry ingredients into a bowl and stir.
  5. When done put the mixture into a tray.
  6. Put the tray into the oven for 12 minutes at 180 degrees.

 

Recipe for nut bar:

Ingredients:

  • 150g of oats
  • Hand full of nuts
  • A drizzle of honey
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tbsp of sweetener
  • 180ml of almond milk
  • 2 eggs

Method:

  1. Put the oats and nuts into a bowl.
  2. Add wet Ingredients and stir.
  3. Add dry ingredients and stir.
  4. Put the mixture into a tray.
  5. Put into the oven for 12 minutes at 180 degrees.

 

Report

Our report is based on sugar and which protein bar is the best one to buy. It is also based on making our own protein bars using ingredients that you might have at home. We compared the shop bought verses homemade. Our prediction was that the homemade protein bars would taste better than the shop made one and will have less sugar. We also predict it will cost less. We think that the shop made protein bar will have a high amount of sugar.

 

Mini Scientist School Exhibition

On the Mini Scientists Day we found out that people preferred the nut bar than the vanilla extract one. We also found out that people would buy our homemade protein bars instead of the shop bought ones.

 

Conclusion

Our conclusion is that the homemade protein bars have less sugar in them than the shop bought ones and costs less. We found out that the worse one you can buy is the Nature Valley Bar with 6.2g of sugar. The best one you can buy is the Lidl brand Meal Pro with 0.8g of sugar. Our conclusion is that the homemade protein bars are healthier than the shop bought ones.

Mini-Scientists: What is a Dry Ice Bubble?

For our project we wanted to find out what a dry ice bubble is and how it forms.

We made the dry ice ourselves using a fire extinguisher instead of buying it because it can be expensive and hard to get on time.

We learned a lot during this project. We learned that carbon dioxide is what makes dry ice and that when carbon dioxide mixes with water it makes a solid bubble.

We really enjoyed doing this project and are very grateful for getting the chance of doing the Mini Scientist again this year!

Thank you!

  How Social Media Affects Our Health.

 

We picked this topic because we wanted kids to know the dangers of social media. Our favourite part about doing this project was the surveys on our class and showing the judges, parents and kids on the day. It was a great experience for us and our school. We learned a lot from other projects too. We hope we can use all this information in the future and everyone else can too. We would like to thank the judges from Intel, Mrs. Keane for organising the mini scientist and all the staff for helping.

Which Liquid Cleans Metal The Best?

Hi, our names are Kieran, Dylan, Adam and Jack. Our project was ‘Which Liquid Cleans Metal the Best?’. We learned that the acid in the lemon juice cleaned the metal the best. We really enjoyed this opportunity to be able to do the mini scientists. We give a huge thanks to our parents and our teachers for helping us with our project.

DO DIFFERENT LIQUIDS EVAPORATE AT THE SAME RATE?

Lorcan: I am 11 years of age and I like soccer and GAA.

Cillian: I am 12 and I like soccer.

Glenn: I am 13 years of age and I like Film.

Szymon: I am 11 years of age and I like playing xbox and computer games.

Our project is based on evaporation and how different liquids can evaporate at various rates. We tested these rates by putting different liquids under the same level of heat for the same amount of time.

Third Class at the Mini-Scientist Fair

Today we went to the mini-scientist fair in our school halls.

‘FEET on FRIDAY!’

ACTIVE SCHOOLS COMMITTEE 
 
This Friday, 10th of November is the first day of our new walk to school campaign; ‘Feet on Friday!’
 
The committee are encouraging all pupils to walk to school on Fridays.
The class with the highest percentage of walkers on Friday mornings will receive a reward.
If you are being driven to school, why not get dropped off at the community centre and walk from there, that way you can be included as a ‘walker’.
Don’t worry, pupils who travel to school on the bus won’t affect their class score.
 
Let’s put in a big effort and be sure to KEEP SAFE, walking on the footpaths and crossing only at traffic lights and with our Lollipop Lady.
 
Remember;
‘Keep active, keep fit, your body needs it!’
Active Schools Committee.

MAKING COLOURFUL STRESS BALLS!

6th Class Remembering the Holocaust

This week 6th Class went out to the garden to plant crocus buds. We did this in memory of the people who lost their lives during the Holocaust. The Jews had to wear yellow stars (star of St David) everyday to make it easier for the Nazis to find them so we planted yellow crocus bulbs. We all planted a bud around the base of a tree Kevin dug up for us.

Crocuses are important because they symbolise the star of St David. They are planted in memory of the children who died during the Holocaust and when the flowers appear we are reminded of them.

We put on a pair of gloves and used trowels to dig holes around a tree and planted crocus bulbs.

After the bulbs were planted we all said a prayer before returning to class.

Active Schools Update

Another successful month with our active school.The U11 girls competed against Athy in their final. They came home with the trophy. Below is a recount about the match from Jemma in 6th class.

 

U-11 Ladies Football Final 19th October 2017 Score -> 6 goals and 2 points Sallins 0 goals and 2 points Athy.

On Thursday the 19th of October 2017 22 girls went to Moorefield to play in the final against Athy. We left the school at 12:30 so we would be at Moorefield for 1:00. Our match started at 2:00. We started the match and it was raining and it was windy. The first half had started and the forwards and midfields did a lot of the work. By half time we were winning by some goals and some points.

We started the second half it was still raining. This time Athy was stronger they scored two points in the first two minutes. So this half the backs and the goalie had to do a lot of work. In the second half we had scored lots of goals and points. After 20 minutes the referee had blown the whistle.

In the end the score was 6-2 Sallins and 0-2 Athy. Sallins had won, we got our photo taken and May our goalie and captain gave a speech.

The next Wednesday we got dominos pizza and Mr. Lanigan gave our medals out to us. On the day we were given no homework.

Maths week 2017-2018 – 6th class estimation

It was Maths Week last week. In 6th class we had to estimate the area of the notice board in sticky notes.

Every 6th class student got to estimate. We had to estimate the length by the width in sticky notes.

This week we measured the area in sticky notes.

Length X Width = Area

11 ½ sticky notes X 15 1/3 sticky notes = 176 3/10

 

Congratulations to the three students who won a Homework Pass.

Banana Bread Bake Off

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake                                        

     

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, we made delicious chocolate chip banana bread squares with Ms. Reidy.

This is the recipe we followed to make them:

  1. First, we got 2 bananas and mashed them using our strong muscles!
  2. Next, we mixed the sugar, bananas, oil and eggs in a mixing bowl. (125g sugar, 4 tbsp of oil & 2 eggs.)
  3. We then added the flour and cinnamon and stirred until the mixture was smooth (225g of self raising flour & a pinch of cinnamon.)
  4. Pour evenly into the foil tin. Bake it for 25-30 mins. (In the oven.)

This is how we made the icing for them! (Optional)

  1. We beat 75g of cream cheese with a fork or a blender, with 1 tbsp of vanilla essence and 75g of butter together.
  2. We gradually added the icing sugar until the mixture was smooth.
  3. Once our banana breads were ready we spread the icing onto each and added banana slices and chocolate chips.

This delicious snack will be all yours if you make a trip to a supermarket to buy the ingredients.

We hope you enjoy our tasty treats.

6th Class Trip to the Bog

Last Friday, the three 6th classes went to the Bog of Allen.  We went to study the habitat. Nuala, Tristan and Aoife brought us around the centre and the bog.

In the morning, we had a snack in the centre before being split into our class groups for the morning activities.

One class went into the museum where we learned about how people used turf more than 50 years ago. They had an old hot water bottle made of clay, a floor brush made of heather sticks and an old iron.

There was an exhibition of the wildlife that or lived on the bog. We learned about a critically endangered bird that lives on the bog called the Curlew. We also saw a fox, a hare and a skull of an ancient elk. We learned that people preserved butter in the bog.

Another class went to the garden to see how bogs were formed. They stared as ponds and lakes. Then the trees and plants died and they formed a fen. Sphagnum moss then grew and the bog was made. The class went to the green house next to see the carnivorous (insect eating) plants. We saw the Sundew, from the bogs of Ireland. We also saw the Pitcher plant from Canada and Venus Fly Trap from the USA.

          

After the green house, we went looking for amphibians. We caught frogs, but we didn’t find any newts.

          

The third class went to catch and identify invertebrates that live in the bog. Look at what we found

     

     

     

After each class had tried all of the activities we had lunch.

When we finished lunch, we walked to the Bog of Allen. It was really mucky. We had a great time running through the wet peat. Each class made a “Bog in a Bottle” on the cut bog. We then went to Lodge Bog, a protected bog. It looked very different.

     

     

On Lodge Bog, we got to hold Sphagnum Moss – the bog builder. It was green, brown and purple. It was wet and soft like a sponge. It can hold up to 20 times its own weight in water.

We then “Rocked the Bog” before heading back to school on the bus.
