A Visit from Beckham February 8, 2011

Filed under: 3rd class,SESE — msobrien @ 12:14 pm

Today we had a visit from Gillian and Beckham from the D.S.P.C.A. (Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). Gillian told us all about how Beckham came to the D.S.P.C.A. It was a really sad story but now he lives with Gillian and he has a really nice life. Gillian and Beckham visit schools all over Dublin to teach children how to look after their pets. We also got to pet Beckham at the end. 🙂

If you want to find out more about The D.S.P.C.A you can visit their website www.dspca.ie

Last Wednesday, our class went to Mr. Kelly’s class. There was a man called Dr. Senge. He made ice cream and he had a really cold liquid chemical. He put a banana in a bowl of water and it froze solid in a minute. Then he brought us outside and he made a bowl go on fire. It was very cool. He also made a volcano. The other classes were there too and Mr. Kelly’s class made volcanoes with Dr. Senge.

Yesterday a man came in to show us how to make ice cream.  It was easy to do it. There were 5 groups .Dr Senge had a very cold liquid chemical.  We made ice cream.  We got to eat it. Then he took us outside and then we saw him make a volcano and some fire works.  Then he made some little bits of metal disappear.  It was fun and very good.
