Hello everyone! Well done for sending in such wonderful artwork last week. They were so bright and colourful. 😄 Completing the art challenge will earn you some extra Dojo points which all go towards Spin The Wheel. Send your pictures to your teacher on Class Dojo or to the School WhatsApp.

Your art challenge this week is based on a famous painter called Pablo Picasso. He was born in Spain in 1881. He loved to paint, draw and create sculptures. He made over 1,800 paintings and some of them have been sold for more than $100 million! Have a look at some of his paintings.

Follow the step-by-step instructions below to create your own Picasso face! The link below brings you straight to the website.

When you are finished drawing, add some bright colours to your masterpiece!

Once your work is finished, send a picture to your teacher on Class Dojo or to the School Whatsapp and it could be added to the blog next week. You will also earn some Dojo’s for your class which all count towards Spin The Wheel!

Atmospheric pressure is the air all around us. It weighs on us all the time, but we can’t feel it. First the atmospheric pressure (or the tiny air molecules all around us) presses against the bottom of the cardboard same way it presses against us. This pressure holds the card up. But the weight of the water should still be heavy enough to push it off right? That’s what most people would think, but if you look at the top of your upside down glass, you can see a small pocket of air. Now, the air outside the glass is at one pressure and the air inside the glass is at another. There isn’t much of an opportunity for the outside air to get into that space and equalise the pressure so what we’ve created is a small pocket of low pressure (a vacuum) inside the glass. There’s more air pushing up against the bottom of the card which creates a higher pressure area compared with the lower pressure air inside the glass. The force from the atmospheric pressure (outside the glass) holds the card up and the vacuum (in the glass) keeps the water’s weight from pushing the card down.

Well done everyone! Next this week’s experiment won’t be as challenging to understand 🤪

Fáilte ar ais go dtí Frása an Lae, Dé Luain 8ú Feabhra!

Táimid fós ag foghlaim faoin aimsir an tseachtain seo agus táimid chun díriú ar fhrásaí a bhaineann le sneachta.

Dean iarracht do dhícheall roinnt Gaeilge a chleachtadh gach lá sa bhaile.

B’fhéidir go bhfeicfimid roinnt sneachta an tseachtain seo in Éirinn!

Is é frása an lae inniu…
