For Maths Week, all classes made a special effort to make maths as hands on and fun as possible to show how maths is relevant in our everyday lives. The children in Ms Moriarty’s class were looking with their “maths eyes” to take photos using the iPads and then come up with a maths question relative to the photo. Here are the results. See if you can answer any of their maths questions as a challenge during.
Maths Week in 3rd Class was all about 2-D Shapes. They also looked at how some 2D shapes can tesselate. They had great fun creating their own tessellating patterns.
2D Shape Hunt
Junior Infants had great fun today in Mrs O’Sullivan’s class. They went on a Maths shape hunt around the school and they also used maths during PE putting numbers in the correct order. Well done to you all!
Division for Maths Week
During maths week, Ms O’Shea’s 4th class played a division game of Go fish. Instead of asking for a card, they revised their division facts. Instead of asking for 6 they asked have you 12÷2? They also used cubes to work out maths problems based on division
4th class also played a maths board game working on their division facts today. They object was to get 4 correct answers in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Well done to 4th class making division fun during Maths Week.
When learning about length, 4th Class had a lot of hands on experience measuring the length of different items and deciding which unit of measurement to use-cm, m or km. They used rulers when using smaller items, the meter stick when measuring bigger items in the classroom and even got to try out the trundle wheel to figure out the length of the hall, courtyard and area around the outside of the school.
When learning about perimeter, 4th Class created their own shapes, both regular and irregular for their classmates to find the perimeter of. Our caretaker wasn't too impressed to see us drawing on the ground but thankfully the markers came off with a little bit of elbow grease:)
Senior Infants-Making Scones for 'The Little Red Hen'.
While learning about ' The Little Red Hen' in Aistear, Senior Infants made scones on one of the stations. They mixed all the ingredients themselves and looked at the chemical reaction that took place when all the ingredients were combined.
