Maths Week 2019

Last week was Maths Week in St. Kevin’s GNS, with all classes taking part in a variety of hands-on mathematical activities and games throughout all class levels to encourage the learning of maths and build strong foundations in Maths for future learning!

Throughout the week, classes in St. Kevin’s G.N.S. participated in many different Maths-related activities and games. Activities included Maths station mornings , coding Beebots in Aistear, coding using Kodable, Microbits and Scratch, Maths board games, daily problem-solving tasks and more.

3rd and 4th Classes participated in a Maths Table Quiz in the school hall. Our 5th Class girls also took part in a Maths Table Quiz with the 5th Class from St. Kevin’s B.N.S.

For the second year running, there was also a whole-school problem-solving poster competition, with prizes for the winners in each class. The winners of the competition were announced at our Maths Week Assembly.

One of the most popular parts of Maths Week was our daily ‘Cheesy Maths Joke of the Day’. Laughs and groans could be heard through the school at 11:50am each day, as Fourth Class delighted us with their very cheesy joke offerings!

Thank you to all the pupils and parents for their support with Maths Week and word has it that Fourth Class are already writing their ‘cheesy jokes’ for Maths Week 2020!
