Water Rockets

Water rockets are so exciting.
We filled our bottle rockets 1/3 full of water (that was the easy bit).
Next we pumped air into the bottle.
When the air pressure built up inside the rocket the rocket finally exploded.
These water rockets work by forcing air into a small space which then releases a valve and allows the rocket to fly into the air.

Air Rockets

Ms. McLoughlin's class made air rockets from 2D and 3D shapes last week.
We helped Ms. McLoughlin's class to launch them today in honour of Space Week.
We used a bicycle pump to put air in the tube.
When we opened the valve the rockets flew off into the air.
It is hard work launching rockets!

Library Visit

We went to Ballybane Library today to find out about the summer programme.
The librarians were SO helpful.
Here is a list of the free workshops we can do at the beginning of the summer.
Teacher was fascinated to learn about the FREE app she can put on her phone and ipad that will let her borrow books, audiobooks and magazines for free.
Ask at the library, they have all the information there.
Library times: Tuesday to Saturdays 11-1 and 2-5.
