Maths Week in 5th


Maths Week was celebrated countrywide last week, 15th-23rd October. Maths for All is at the core of everything we do. This simple phrase encapsulates our belief that no matter what age, background or ability; maths is useful and it can  enrich our lives. During Maths Week, 5th Class decided to gather some data from every class in the school. We found out what were the favouirite colours of the children in Junior and Senior Infants. We discovered who liked what pets in 1st and 2nd. In 3rd and 4th, we discussed favourite hobbies while 5th and 6th summed up their favourite meals for us. We worked collaboratively to collate all our information and displayed it in the form of several graphs. It was truly a coming together of the interests and favourites of all the pupils in our school.
