Third and Fourth Classes had great fun planting vegetables in our school garden. We planted peas,potatoes, onions, lettuce, carrots and parsnips. Thank you to Mr. Hanrahan for teaching us how to sow the vegetables. We have lots of volunteers to go and water the vegetables every day!!!

The children in Kiltealy thoroughly enjoyed a range of activities throughout Maths Week last week. Well done to all involved.

Some activities they engaged in are listed below.

  • The whole school took part in the Maths Problem Of The Day Challenge. These included- A Time Estimation Challenge, A Length Estimation Challenge and A Number Estimation Challenge. There were overall winners and class runners up for each problem.
  • A special round of their weekly Problem Solving Quiz with double the quiz questions and an opportunity to score double the points.
  • Some interactive whiteboard maths games. They got very competitive as they tried to not only beat each others scores but also beat the timer in multiplication, division, addition and subtraction games. 5th & 6th also played and Angle Alienation Game where they showed their skills and knowledge of angle degrees.
  • Outdoor Maths Trails were a great hit and we were lucky that the weather held up for this fun activity.
  • A fun day was had on Thursday when the children were quizzed on all their Maths knowledge to date. The final score count was extremely close in all age groups.
  • The children created some beautiful Maths art that is on display throughout the building.
