Junior Infants carried out some spooky Science experiments for Halloween this year! πŸ‘»

Dancing Ghosts πŸ‘»:

We explored static electricity in class. We rubbed balloons off of our hair and held the balloon over the paper ghosts. The static electricity made the ghost 'dance' πŸ‘»πŸ‘».

Making Potions πŸͺ„:

The witches and wizards made some marvellous potions for Halloween. We explored the reaction that occurred when we mixed baking powder and vinegar πŸ’₯ alongside some spooky ingredients! It was very exciting πŸͺ„πŸͺ„

Junior Infants went to the moon for Space Week πŸŒ™πŸš€

In pairs we designed our rockets πŸš€.

We stuck our rockets onto balloons which were tied with clothes pegs.

Each balloon was stuck onto a line of string.

When we shouted blast off, our astronauts released their balloon rockets and they travelled along the string! It was so exciting!! πŸ’₯

We have some budding astronauts here in Juniors! πŸ‘©β€πŸš€

We used our Five Senses to explore different materials in our classroom: 

πŸ– Touch: We explored the feel of different textured materials in our 'feely bag'.

πŸ‘ƒ Smell: Using essential oils on cotton pads, we analysed different smells. Lavender was a firm favourite! 

πŸ‘ Sight: We played 'I Spy' in our groups.

πŸ‘‚Hearing: Using shakers and bells we explored different sounds and how we hear them.

πŸ‘… Taste: We experienced the different tastes of sour jelly beans. Some were nicer than others!
