4th Class – Ms. Doherty Room 3

Minibeast Hunt

In room 3, we are learning all about minibeasts. We made the most of the good weather yesterday and conducted a minibeast hunt around the school grounds. We found lots of small and interesting insects with the help of our magnifying glasses!

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!

Spreading Christmas Cheer

In Ms. Doherty’s 4th Class we took part in the carepack.ie initiative where we made Christmas cards for residents in a care home in Dublin. Today we visited the post office to post our letters. We wish everyone a very merry Christmas!!    

   

The Ancient Egyptians

Here are some of our 4th class pupils displaying their fantastic projects that they completed on ‘The Ancient Egyptians’. We enjoyed travelling back in history to learn about what life was like in ancient Egypt.
