OUR SCHOOL

We would like to create an environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.

As Room 4 were learning about water and oil in Science they did an Art lesson based on this. First they poured a small amount of vegetable oil into a bowl and added food colouring.

Room 4 Science - Mixing oil and water

Room 4 Science - Mixing oil and water

  • 1st Oct 2021 2:45 pm

The class had a great time doing this experiment! They began by pouring oil into a jar, adding water before adding a few droplets of food colouring. Next Ms. Brennan got the class to stir the oil and water in the jar, trying to mix them. They then let the mixture settle and watched as the water separated from the oil again. Next, the boys and girls stirred up an egg yolk and dropped a couple of spoonfuls of yolk into the oil and water. They mixed the water and oil again. This time when the class stirred it, the liquid it become creamy looking as the two liquids mixed. This is why so many recipes require eggs. Egg yolk has something called lethicin in it that helps oil and water to connect both to each other and to the other ingredients in the recipe.
