*** SPECIAL MENTION ***
Pauric got special mention for taking ownership of his learning - both asking and answering questions in class. He even baked cookies inspired by a recipe in a proof read and edit activity.

Aoife got special mention for recognising that she needs to know her tables better to help with her Numeracy. She has spent hours on TimesTables Rockstar and it has really paid off!

This week is Maths Week Ireland.
Today we explored the concept of time. We completed different activities for what we thought was a minute in groups of four. We added up our total times, converted from seconds to seconds and minutes and calculated how fast or slow we were.

This week we have been working on our discursive writing, ending with a debate. The motion was “social media is bad for your health.” We had an opposing and proposing team. Mrs Kearney was very impressed with our efforts but found it too difficult to make a decision on who won. Well done to all!

A great day of Cross Country at Tobermore. Well done to those who ran the fun run and those who competed. Year 7 were a credit to St John’s and we had a very enjoyable day.

*** SPECIAL MENTION ***
Cathal got special mention today for his efforts in Numeracy. He has gained confidence and speaks out during lessons - he even became Mr McFlynn and did a tutorial on multiplication for us.
Joe is trying to organise his things better. He also got special mention for being kind to everyone in our class - especially James.
Well done boys!

This week we wrote play scripts based on our class novel “Under The Hawthorn Tree.” We included scene headings, brackets and colons. We spent ten minutes rehearsing our scripts then acted them out. Videos (and bloopers) to follow...

We end our day once a week with ten minutes of guided meditation. Children’s meditation improves attention and concentration. It also helps with self awareness, allowing children to look inside themselves to find out who they are and what makes them happy.
