Our introduction to Division
We used some real life examples for our introductory lesson to Division. We worked on our mini whiteboards and the children were encouraged to use concrete materials, such as counters and 100 squares. The children used various strategies to work out the problems which showed their conceptual understanding of Divison. They came up with lots of interesting methods!
World Space Week
The Big Dig
We had a great day for “The Big Dig” in Edmondstown! The children got a basic introduction to archaeology with a variety of interactive lessons and hands-on activities. We spent time digging, examined Viking artefacts and even made some coins! It brought history to life for the children learnt about Irelands past in a hands-on, fun, informative environment.
Our Autumn Trees
Show and Tell
The children is 3rd and 4th have been enjoying Show and Tell each Friday since we returned to school. They bring in an object to show the class, and every object that a student brings has a story. The class can discuss the item, ask inquiry based questions, and make connections. It's an exciting way to work on our communication skills!
