4th class – Mathemagician trip!

Fourth class had a fantastic day at the Helix, where they had their
minds blown by Andrew Jeffrey the mathemagician! He performed lots of
exciting maths magic tricks and showed us all some good tips on
remembering our tables. What a great way to celebrate maths week!

Maths Week 2017

We were celebrating Maths Week this week in school.

Mr. Mooney organised lots of great activities for the whole school.

There were estimation stations, daily maths questions for each class and a maths fair during the week. Lots of teachers did some maths trails and activities with their classes too.

At the maths fair there were activities in time, length, weight and shape.

It was great fun and thanks to Mr. Mooney and all of his helpers for a super maths week!!

 

Maths fun in Room 10

We love maths Fridays in room 10! We had lots of fun problem solving and teaching each other new games! Have a look! 

Maths stations in Room 15 – Capacity

Room 15 were busy learning about capacity in maths.

Ms. Ray made 3 stations and we each got to go to all of them.

There was an interactive game for measuring, making smoothies based on different capacities and estimating and measuring.

It was great fun.

Learning about 3-D shapes in Room 15 – Maths and engineering

Room 15 were working with Ms. Ray and learning all about 3-D shapes.

They made their own shapes with marshmallows and spaghetti.

They had to discuss their structures with the class.

Fraction fun in Room 11

We have been learning all about fractions in room 11.  We love using cubes to help us learn!

Maths week in Room 17

For Maths Week we made quizzes, crack the codes and maths trails for every class. There were also lots of competitions where we estimated, made posters and coloured in maths  pages.

Maths week in Room 14

As part of Maths Week, Room 14 completed lots of fun activities. We did a Maths trail around the school based on lines and angles, we visited the Maths Fair in the hall to complete different activities at different stations, we developed our skills in estimation and problem solving also. It was loads of fun!

Room 15 visit the maths fair

During maths week we have been doing lots of fun maths based activities.

On Thursday we went to the hall and Mr. Mooney and Mr. Coghlan were there to present their maths fair to us. They had lots of 5th and 6h class helpers. We got to use all our maths skills to practice shape, pattern, capacity, time and measure weight.

It was really a lot of fun!
