Fantastic Art by Mr Lynch’s 4th class
We had a wonderful cake sale in school on Friday 16th October 2015. Thank you to everyone who supported our fund-raising for UNICEF Syrian Refugee Appeal and the Simon Commmunity. We raised 2143euro.
As part of Maths Week Ireland the whole school was involved in a variety of maths activities throughout the week. 3rd to 6th took part in a Maths Challenge. They had to work co-operatively and solve lots of problems within a specified time. Everyone worked really well and enjoyed themselves as they tried to complete the questions.
Junior to 2nd classes had fun in the library as they worked with the wide range of Maths equipment. They were involved with activities using the sand, water, skittles, 2D and 3D shapes, weighing scales and balances, measuring worms and metre sticks. They also enjoyed snakes and ladders, number bingo, dice and card games as well as buying and selling in the shop
Some classes completed the Maths trail around the school.
A great week for all !!! Caitriona O’ Reilly
