Faughart Community National School


In March the pupils in Room 3 learned about materials and change as part of a unit of work in Science. They got the opportunity to irreversibly change cream into butter and buttermilk by shaking it. They had lots of fun during this process and documented the rate of change and analysed the different yields obtained for normal cream and double cream.

Finally, pupils got the opportunity to work on their procedural writing and published reports on the experiment to make butter from cream and the procedures on how to make the perfect  buttermilk pancakes.
