Maths Week 2019

Maths Week 2019

 

The pupils of Divine Word celebrated Maths Week 2019 from 14th – 17th October. We had a fun filled week of activities in all classes from Junior Infants to 6th class.

Mangahigh

Pupils from 1st – 6th competed in the Mangahigh Maths Week Ireland Ninja Challenge. One pupil earned a gold medal for winning 150 Mangahigh points during the challenge. Children can continue to play Mangahigh using their unique passwords by logging onto www.mangahigh.com

 

Coding

Children from 4th-6th attended a Coding workshop where they learnt the basics in Scratch. Scratch is a programming language designed by MIT. Students use Scratch to program their own interactive stories, activities and games.

Halloween Maths Trail

Children from Junior Infants to 6th participated in a Halloween Maths Trail. Clues were left around the grounds of the school and children were given an opportunity to answer age appropriate Maths questions. Our junior infants were busy counting while our senior classes had to use their math’s problem solving skills to answer the questions.

Card Games

Children from 3rd -6th learnt some card games.  Card games are a fun way to develop mathematical thinking and number skills. With a simple deck of traditional cards, you can bring Maths learning with you, anywhere you go: car trips, restaurants, or just relaxing at home!

 

 

 

Puzzles Challenge

Children from 3rd -6th participated to solve puzzles against the clock. There were brainteasers, logic puzzles and Maths riddles. Puzzles are a great way to encourage problem-solving and logical thinking.

Board Games

Our Junior Infants-2nd classes spent the  mornings enjoying traditional board games and other Maths based games  in the hall.

World Book Day in Senior Infants

We had fun dressing up as some characters from books we love to read.  Take a look.

A Miracle in Town

The Senior Infants were absolutely fantastic today performing their Christmas Play ‘A Miracle in Town’ for their parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and all the other people who attended this morning in the school hall.

The teachers were very proud of all their hard word and amazing singing.  They all looked brilliant – take a look at a few photographs.
