Children in First and Third Class worked together to complete a ‘STEM Maths Trail’ today. Children in Third Class guided children to First Class to explore, investigate, measure, estimate and problem-solve in all areas of the Maths curriculum. Children solved questions in the classroom, around the school building and outside in the school grounds. It was a very enjoyable activity for all involved. Well done boys and girls!
Mr. Neville’s Fifth and Sixth Class worked together in groups to solve the clues hidden around the room to reveal the ten-digit code needed to escape the room. There were ten clues to crack. Luckily they cracked the code before 3 pm!!
Children in Second Class worked with the children in Junior Infants and Senior Infants to play a number of Maths games in the school hall. The children in Second Class explained how to play the games to the younger classes. Well done to the boys and girls in Second Class who acted as exemplary teachers for the morning!
Ms. Chawe’s Fourth and Fifth Class worked together in groups to solve the clues hidden around the room to reveal the ten-digit code needed to escape the room. There were ten clues to crack!
Children in First Class worked in groups of two and three to solve addition and subtraction problems. The children are learning about the different problem-solving strategies they can use to solve these problems. Children self-assessed their work. Great work today by the boys and girls! Marvelous Mathematicians!
First Class estimated and measured the length, width and height of the classroom using one metre balloons. Children work together to estimate how many balloons were needed for the length, width and height of the classroom. This was a fantastic hands-on activity that the boys and girls enjoyed!
Today, fourth class attended ‘Bubblz the Mathematical Entertainer’ from Bubbly Maths. The show was on in Mary Immaculate College and was funded by SFI (Science Foundation Ireland) and DES (Department of Education). The topics covered were shape, space, problem-solving and mathematical thinking. This was a STEM event. Activities involved giant balloon shapes and soap bubbles. The boys and girls had a fantastic day!
Maths Week 2019 has begun! First Class celebrated the event today by playing fun, active games!
