Maths Week 2018

In celebration of Maths Week 2018, we have had a fun-filled, busy, interactive week. From Junior Infants right through to 6th class, using our Maths Eyes in our everyday life, has been the theme of our week.

In Infants we enjoyed an excellent new game called Face Off while First Class entered into the Halloween spirit with a game of Boo Bump Addition. Second to Fourth spent the morning investigating Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man Theory, while Fifth and Sixth got to grips with a tricky SkyScrapers puzzle and collaborating while problem solving with Izak9.

We have had lots of opportunity all week to work and learn collaboratively and practise our group work skills. A huge thank you to all the teachers for getting involved with Maths trails, puzzles and games all week.

Students of the Week Friday October 5th

Well done to this week’s ‘Students of the Week’. As with previous weeks it was lovely to hear so many positive comments from the teachers and these students can be very proud of their week’s work.

This week all those chosen worked very hard, displaying excellent organisational and listening skills. These skills are so important, not alone in the classroom but also out in the yard. A lovely comment regarding one of our winners this week was that this pupil ‘never falls out with anyone’ setting a great example always.We heard of another student who begins and ends each day with a lovely smile on their face.
We had a recommendation for showing great ‘leadership in class ‘ and another for working so hard with their class and homework exercises while making a huge effort to ensure they understand what is being asked. We heard of those who are displaying greater self belief and confidence in their own abilities and others who have made a huge effort particularly with the important subject of Maths.

We’re delighted with the hard work that is ongoing throughout the school with many of our teachers saying so many pupils were in very close contention this week! Well done everybody keep up this great work! Maith sibh.
