An mhí seo beimid ag foghlaim faoin an aimsir.

Is é frása na seachtaine inniu…

Tá sé ag cur báistí.

Má tá sé ag cur báistí b’fhéidir go mbainfeá úsáid as ‘scáth fearthainne’ chun fanacht tirim!

6th class were very lucky to have Mrs. Doyle teaching them for the past few weeks. We took part in fantastic lessons and learned so much! We studied themes such as sustainability and the environment, autumn and our local area and took part in such fun, interactive Gaeilge lessons!

We also took part in some great debates, learned how to sew and presented reports we drafted to the whole class. Thank you so much to Mrs. Doyle, we hope you can come back to visit us soon!

We had a great time celebrating Maths Week 2022 in 6th class and took parts in lots of fun activities!

We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Maths Week Mini Quiz with Franz
Schlindwein, on Zoom. There were lots of interesting questions and we practised the day before with some fun brain teasers – see if you can have a go here:

Do you know the answers?
Problem solving skills in practise!

Then we took part in a Maths trail in the school and yard areas, that involved putting our Maths skills to the test.

We split into groups and followed the instructions as accurately as possible.

The trail involved measuring, calculating area and perimeter, observing and tallying results of data collected, measuring and recording time and comparing results with other teams to determine accuracy!

Junior Infants loved taking part in Maths week, along with all other classes in the school. We started the week with some number runs and maths games. We got a chance with a break in the weather to do some chalk drawings in the yard, practising our shapes and numbers.

We also got to incorporate some IT into our numeracy lessons. We had great fun using the interactive whiteboard for maths games, try out some of the numeracy apps on the class tablets and even got to do some programming using the school Beebots!

We have been loving #mathweek on third class! We have been very busy doing some fun activities.

We did a STEM experiment and linked in with maths week. This experiment was the water cycle in a bottle. We used capacity to measure the amount of water in the bottle.
We made some spooky potions and measured how much liquid was in each potion!
We watched maths week t.v and learned some really cool tricks. Dr. Ken Farquhar showed us the maths behind juggling which was really cool.
We did some cool riddles on the board together. Can you figure this one out?

In fifth class, we have been taking part in some fun maths activities for maths week!

We were using our problem solving skills to solve shape patterns!

We worked together to continue the patterns!

We looked at 2D shapes and tessellation. We made some spooky Halloween 2D shape tessellation art!

We also made 2D shape monsters! We are looking forward to more maths activities this week!
