Corn an Domhain

Excitement is reaching fever-pitch at Scoil Náisiúnta Droim Lias with World Cup Russia kicking off this week. To celebrate, we made football players from clay. We began by using used Twistables and other old stationery destined for the bin to make our structure for our footballers. We then covered this structure with clay and shaped it to suit our design. We let our clay creations dry over the weekend before painting them. We finally used PVA glue to seal the clay but unfortunately many of our footballers suffered career-ending injuries and have begun to crumble. We will fire the clay in a kiln in future to help reduce the chance of crumbling.

Paper Cup Phone

We are learning about sound this month in Science. We made two different phones to test how effective each phone would be. Our first phone used string and proved very effective at transmitting soundwaves. Our second phone used thread and it didn’t work at all. We guessed that this was on account of being outside, wind interfering with the sound waves and not holding the string taut enough.

Have a look at our videos to see how we got on!
