Interesting Interviews in First Class!

I had an interview with Mr. Donnelly’s class. They are enjoying First Class but when I asked them what they missed about Senior Infants, they said finishing at half one. They all said that they like basketball, football and dodgeball.

I got an exclusive interview with Flynn. Flynn is a six-year-old boy who has travelled all over the world. His favourite countries that he has ever been to are Cambodia, Bali and Thailand.

Mr. Donnelly then told me that the children in his class love when he teaches his favourite subject which is Science. He said sometimes they can act like cheeky monkeys! The class did an experiment to see how a helicopter can fly. They made their own out of paper. They had great fun flying them.

First Class are Amazing Scientists

Welcome to this month’s blog. Mr. Donnelly is doing lots of science. His class is having lots of fun as well. During science they did experiments with coke. The first experiment they put milk in coke. The results weren’t nice. The milk and coke separated. It looked pretty much like water apart from the fact that there was brown, particle like stuff on the bottom and on the surface of the water.

The second experiment was putting a tooth into coke! Surprisingly the tooth didn’t dissolve! The tooth went all black and yucky! Mr. Donnelly and his class love science. They also learned about bacteria. His class enjoy playing maths game as well. They were working hard on grammar and vocabulary games. Mr. Donnelly says that they enjoy doing their work.

That’s all folks!
