Maths Week 15th to 23rd October 2022
In St. David's NS, we celebrated Maths Week from 15th - 23rd October. Throughout the week, the classes completed fun activities in their classrooms such as problem-solving games. 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class also made great cityscape art pieces, incorporating maths into their art lessons. All of the classes participated in maths trails around the school grounds. This brought the learning of maths to the outdoors. 3rd and 4th class made a fun maths Kahoot quiz for junior and senior infants and 5th and 6th class made a brilliant maths Kahoot quiz for 1st and 2nd class.
5th and 6th Class, along with Ms Gillespie, worked very hard to organise a Maths Day for the whole school on Friday 23rd October. We had stations in the hall for all the children to complete. These included a shape hunt, zap it, maths hats and colour by number. We also had a competition to guess how many objects were in the container. At the end of the day, and to end Maths Week, the whole school gathered in the hall to show off our maths hats. Thank you to all who worked so hard and who took part and a big well done to everybody. We had lots of fun during Maths Week!
