This week was ‘Maths Week 2018’ throughout Ireland.
As part of this initiative, both the junior and senior room took part in lots of different maths activities.
On Wednesday, the senior class went on a maths trail around our school which included measuring trees, counting fence posts, finding different shapes and looking for the prime numbers in our playground snakes and ladders.
On Thursday, the student council organised a maths trail for our junior and senior infants. They had to measure their tables with pencils, count the windows in their classroom and count the number of cars in the carpark.
As part of maths week, the 2nd to 6th class pupils have signed up to Khan Academy, where they have the opportunity to practise their maths skills in a fun and exciting way. We hope to continue this wonderful program throughout the school year.
The senior room also completed some lovely tessellating fish pictures for art.
Have a look at some photos from our maths week.
