Maths Week in Second Class

October 18th, 2018

We had great fun today in Second class!! We were very determined to solve the puzzle using coins.  The goal was to turn the triangle upside down by moving only 3 coins!! 

We also worked on Algebra this week, identifying patterns in a sequence of numbers and figuring out fast ways of counting. We learned  how to skip count in 2s, 5s, 10s and even 3s so far!!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week. Our news is as follows

  • St. Tola’s  N.S. opened to pupils in September 1978 so we are celebrating 40 years this year. To start our celebrations we had a very special photo taken yesterday. All the pupils currently in the school made a giant 40 outside the main door. We then had a drone take a photo and a video of this. Thank you to Bunratty Search and Rescue who took the photo from their drone. We greatly appreciate their help.

Card Games

October 17th, 2018

 

For Maths Week, second class enjoyed learning how to play the card game ‘Lives’ with assistance from Mr. Quinn and the 5th class pupils!! We learned  how many cards were in a deck and how many suits in a deck and learned the rules of the game. Pupils in 2nd were split into groups of four. 

We also learned to play a game called ‘High/Low’, working on probability. This game also helped us to compare numbers and discuss which numbers are greater than/less than or equal to the number on the card shown. The children are looking forward to playing more card games this week!!
