Fourth Class has Maths Eyes!

Fourth Class has Maths Eyes!

Our Maths Eyes Trip On Wednesday 5th of April we went to Sean Walsh Park to do a ‘Maths Eyes’ trail. We worked in pairs. We were given a clipboard, worksheet and a pencil. The worksheet had lots of Maths questions on it. We had to use our ‘Maths Eyes’ to solve the maths problems. It was good fun, some of the questions were easy but some were hard too. Afterwards we got to play in the playground and when we were finished we went to McDonalds. I had a giant chocolate muffin, it was delicious! I really enjoyed my day and I really using my ‘Maths Eyes’. By Jessica...

Ms Murray’s 4th class went on a trip to see the 1916 garrisons. We went to Collins Barracks first. We saw the Proclamation and heard it being read it out and we saw the ripped up Irish flag.

We got to the GPO and we saw some bullet holes in the pillars holding up the GPO. We saw photos of the seven men who signed the Proclamation. There were pictures nearly everywhere. We saw soldiers raise the Irish flag on O’Connell...

Having the time of our lives in 4th clas...

For the past fortnight, we have been learning how to read and show the time in our maths classes with Ms. O’Connell. Firstly, to get the hang of what a second, minute and hour feel like, we did some fun activities. We had to listen to the tick of the clock and clap along every second. We discussed what kind of things you could get done in an hour then. After that, we had to estimate how many ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ you could fit into a minute, half a minute and even a quarter of a minute – that’s the same as 15...

Trip to the woods

In the woods we saw lots of animals. We saw lots of different trees. We saw a big oak tree to sit on for our lunch. Then we started walking around and we saw a deer and we saw a squirrel and mice. People were picking up pinecones and they got wet and soggy. There was a big hill it was really hard to climb we nearly fell. When we were walking around we saw a big tree, my teacher asked us tow rap our arms around the tree to see how many people would fit. It took six kids to fill the tree. We saw lots of people walking their dogs we saw a pug and a German shepherd. When we...
