Wellbeing Week

Kindness Cup Winners

Wellbeing week was a great success in room four. The children were given more opportunities to go to our calm corner during the week and were able to undertake more handbreathing activities and meditation throughout the day. The boys were also introduced to some new initiatives such as the kindness cup. Each day a boy was selected to win the kindness cup. The boys who had won the kindness cup had the difficult choice of selecting the next winner. There were many boys deserving of the award, here are the boys who did win during wellbeing week. Due to its success we will continue using the kindness cup in room four.






World Book Day

World book day celebrations

In celebration of world book day the boys undertook many activities. These included DEAR time everyday, completing a report on their favourite character and examining the importance of sharing books. The boys also got the opportunity to dress up as their favourite character. Here are the boys who dressed up from room 4. 




The boys have been learning to draw from observation in art. They enjoyed selecting their feathers and then replicating these by drawing them to a larger scale. 



Our Brochures

As part of our Geography lessons the boys have been learning how to examine an aerial photo and how to read features on maps. We then examined the differences in rural and urban places by examining the features evident on maps.

The boys learned about and examined tourist destinations in their local environment such as rivers and lakes. We then examined a variety of brochures advertising tourist destinations around Ireland. After composing a list of criteria for a good brochure, the boys then created their own. 



Advent Promises

Advent Promises

In continuing our preparation for Christmas, the boys created Advent promises. They put great consideration and effort into creating these promises.  







The boys in room four have been learning about the meaning of Advent. They have created advent artwork in preparation for Christmas and for the St.John Boscos Senior Boys School Advent competition. The effort put in to this was incrediable as you can see from the finished product. 


Creating houses


Creating Houses

As part of Geography, History and Science room 4 were examining materials used in constructing houses. We focused on examining the materials used in constructing houses and why certain materials have changed while other materials have remained in use over time. The children then using limited resources of lollipop sticks, match sticks and bluetack had to design and make their own houses. The groups were very creative with some even adding a swing and a slide to their garden. 


The Butterfly Lion Artwork

The Butterfly Lion artwork

In room four the boys have read the novel The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. They were very interested in the story and completed artwork based on a scene from the novel. Here is their amazing work creating silhouettes.
