Maths Week 2017

The pupils of Edmondstown NS really enjoyed Maths Week 2017! Our Fifth Class pupils acted as buddies to the Infant pupils in Ms. Wallnutt’s class as they completed a maths trail in their classroom, around the school and out in the playground.

Sixth Class pupils worked in pairs to follow the senior maths trail, as did Third and Fourth Class. The emphasis was on having fun while seeing maths in the context of our environment and using correct mathematical vocabulary.

Our emphasis will be on using our Maths vocabulary and using Maths in everyday life. Stay tuned for puzzles and games! For those of you who like a challenge, below is a link to the Maths game from Countdown!

Space Week 2017 was out of this world!

Pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed Space Week 2017 at Edmondstown NS! Ms. Wallnutt’s Junior and Senior Infant Class created a wonderful rocket display while Ms. Cooney’s Third and Fourth Class designed an amazing solar system.

As part of our participation in the national Space Week 2017 programme, Edmondstown NS also received a unique image of the moon from Blackrock Castle Observatory!

To infinity and beyond! Space Week 2017 begins!

Space Week 2017 has kicked off at Edmondstown NS! 5th and 6th class began by learning some key facts about the planets in the Milky Way. Pupils learned about the relative volumes of each planet and used fruit to compare them. We used DK Findout on our school laptops for research.
