Active Maths in Motion
Junior Infants have had great fun practising their maths skills. They are great at working together to solve problems and talk about the different activities. These active maths sessions have helped the pupils revise all the maths they have learned during Junior Infants. The photos below show some of the exciting tasks they have been working on.
Maths Week 2017
Maths Week took place between the 14th and the 22nd of October. All the pupils were fully involved in the many activities that took place. Every class enjoyed a maths hunt around the school yard. Infants were busy finding shapes and numbers while the older classes had to answer a variety of questions based on their school environment.
There was great fun making patterns with cubes, beads and bears. Many classes worked as part of a group to create a variety of 2-d shapes using their bodies. They were able to make regular and irregular shapes.
A pupil from each class was awarded, ‘Mathematician of the Week’, this was for their effort and participation throughout the week, solving the maths problem of the day, creating a maths-based piece of art and being an active mathematician all week long.
You can see some of the pupils work in the pictures below. Well done to all the pupils and let’s continue to be ‘Marvellous Mathematicians’ all year long!
