4th Class Trip to Henrietta Street

On the 21st of March, Ms. Doherty’s and Ms. Brennan’s 4th Classes took a trip to the Henrietta Street Museum. We have read the novel ‘The Little Bee Charmer of Henrietta Street’ by Sarah Webb, which is a book about children who lived in the tenement flats in Dublin 1 in 1911. We loved reading this book and learned so much about what life was like in the tenements in 1911.

Isabella in Ms. Brennan’s 4th Class has a personal link to the Henrietta Street tenement flats as her great-grandad and great-granny were born in Number 13 Henrietta Street and moved into Number 14 when they married before they moved to Finglas. Isabella is pictured below with a photo frame which is a picture of her granduncle when he was a child in Henrietta Street. It’s amazing to have such a personal link to what we have been learning about!

We had a great day touring the museum and learned a lot about the living conditions in the tenement flats. It was great to be able to travel back in time and act as mini-historians for the day. We ate our lunch in King’s Inn Park afterwards which was a lovely treat. A great day of fun for both of our 4th classes!

Christmas Fun in Room 4

Room 4 had a lot of fun on their last day of school before the Christmas holidays. They have worked so hard this term and earned themselves a treat which was a lovely hot chocolate party to get us all in the Christmas spirit. 

We also had great fun during the Christmas Raffle. Everyone was delighted with their prizes. Thanks to Paula and all our staff for organizing a great raffle. 

Happy Christmas from all in Ms. Brennan’s Room 4. 


Bee Bots in Room 4

We had great fun using the Bee Bots this week in Room 4. We programmed the Bee Bots using different sequences to make them move forward, backward, right and left.  

We have been working on fractions in Maths and once we had solved the answers, we coded the Bee-Bot to move to the correct answer. 

We also created different tracks using lots of turns and we then programmed the Bee-Bot to complete the track by solving the sequence.
