Third class experiment with helium

Third class experiment with helium

In Mr. Maguire’s class, The children have been learning about different gases and how they work. Last week they got to experiment with Helium.

Trip to Tallaght Library

Trip to Tallaght Library

      Last Wednesday 14/11/18, we went to Tallaght library. We walked from Sacred Heart to the library. First, we took a seat and met two ladies who would show us around. After we looked at some picture books and we talked about library cards. We got a tour of the library and we learned that the last name of the author is where the book has to go. There were sections from A-Z. For example a book by David Walliams would go in the ‘W’ section. The ladies showed us all of the different types of books that you can get. We found some books that we can use...
