On Tuesday the 9th October, we all went into Ms. Beechinor’s room to Skype Cian O’Regan. The internet wasn’t great on Tuesday, so it was hard for us to hear him and him to hear us. Cian is an astronomer. Miss Courtney told us we were going to talk to an astronaut so most of the questions we had prepared were for that (What was Ms. Courtney thinking?! hehehe).
While we were listening to him we thought of new questions to ask. We were able to ask him some questions about space, such as, what is his favourite planet and is there life on Mars? He also said that some scientists say that there is life on Mars, but if there is you will need a microscope to see it. He said he would really love to be an astronaut and see all of the planets.
We learnt a lot of interesting facts. We were amazed by what he told us.

Last Friday we presented a play called The Big Carrot. There was a man called Tom and when he woke up one day there was a big carrot in his garden so he began to pull it but he couldn’t get it out. Then his friends helped him. Have a look at the videos to see the whole story told by us.
We also did a song called Galway girl. You can see that video on our Facebook page. We had lots of fun.
We also did the Kindness Award. Next time it’s Ms. Beechinor’s class.
