We love revising our Tables in the yard using Hopscotch.

Who knew Tables could be such fun?

Did you realise that a hummingbird weighed only 1g???

4th Class thought that this fact was absolutely fascinating!!

They decided to compare the weight of the hummingbird to 100g, 200g, 300g, 400g, 500g, 600g, 700g, 800g, 900g, 1000g (1kg).

See below how they compared the weights.

There were wonderful Maths Display noticeboards in many areas of our school during Maths Week. They were bright and colourful with so many interesting mathematical facts on display. We learned so much from these noticeboards.

Look at these fantastic homemade balances which 4th Class made while studying about Weight. Wow! They used a coat hanger, string and two plastic cups to make these fabulous balances. They work brilliantly and were so useful for comparing different weights. Super work!

4th Class has been busy using their mathematical skills to do some shopping. They were using Shopping Catalogues to buy ingredients for a nutritious cheap dinner. Yummy!

What ingredients did they choose?

Whose dinner was the cheapest? What was the cost of this dinner?

Whose dinner was the most expensive? What was the cost of this dinner?

What ingredients were used in each dinner?

What change did they get from €10?

What was the difference between the cheapest dinner and the most expensive dinner?

4th Class took advantage of the recent fine weather by organising a new outdoor Maths Trail. The children had great fun as they searched all over our school grounds to solve the mathematical clues. There was a great variety of mathematical skills in use solving these clues.

We like using Target Boards to revise different types of numbers which are written in many different ways.

During Maths Week we all enjoyed a Maths Table Quiz in our classrooms. We worked in small groups and had great fun working together on the answers to the questions which were shown on our Interactive White Boards.

During Maths Week we became very aware of evidence of Maths all around us.

We hadn’t really noticed before but when it was brought to our attention, we noticed Maths everywhere! We had lots of posters around the school illustrating Maths in our environment. We discovered Maths everywhere!!

Third and Fourth Classes really enjoyed doing a Maths Trail around the school and the school grounds.

Fifth and Sixth Classes also enjoyed a more challenging School Maths Trail.

Who knew Maths could be so much fun?

Sixth Class really enjoyed designing their Space Rockets. The rockets are based on stored energy.

Working in groups, they used insulating pipe foam to make the main body of the rocket. They used card templates for the fins. The fins keep the rockets pointed in the correct direction. They then used masking tape to hold everything together!!

The children constructed a **protractor** to see the best* angle* to use which would propel the rocket the furthest

Using an elastic band and a wooden ** metre stick**, they launched their rockets!!

When they pulled back the elastic band, the elastic band stored the energy. Then when the elastic band is let go, it releases this energy as it returns to its original **length**.

The children then ** measured **the length each rocket flew. They

One rocket even landed in the basketball hoop!! Can you spot it?!

Third Class learned about Capacity, Weight and 3D Shape in Maths.

They then explored the topic of Healthy Eating in Science class.

They integrated this knowledge and constructed this fantastic Food Pyramid on their classroom wall!

It is so easy to see the foods which we should eat sparingly!

And also the foods which we should eat regularly! Well done, Third Class!
