Maths Week 2013 in Mr. Ryan’s classroom

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 18th October 2013

During the week we completed a range of activities which were a pleasant and enjoyable change from using a book. On Monday Mrs. griffin took 1st + 2nd between 2pm and 3pm to do station activities using notation boards, IWB games, and Calendar activities. On Tuesday we continued with the work on target boards and completed challenges on Mangahigh. On Wednesday we continued our work on the target boards. On Thursday we had station activities with Mrs. Dorgan. We made 3d shapes out of 2D nets (with help from Ms. O’Brien), card games (old maid) IWB games from Mangahigh and domino games. On Friday we got to go out to the computer room to go on Mangahigh and complete some target boards. Also we got to do a Maths trail around the school where we were put into groups with other people in the school. We had to find out answers to questions on the sheets. The winners were the team with the most correct answers.

Junior Champions 2013

Junior Champions 2013

On Monday the 14th the victorious Keel team visited the school with the trophy. They defeated Glenbeigh-Glencar on a scoreline of 1:9 to 1:7 in the final of the Junior Championship in Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney.
We were delighted that so many of the team took the time to come to the school with the cup. Many of us got our jerseys signed by the players and mentors. Past pupil Terry O’Sullivan spoke to us and thanked us for the great support at the game. Brian Prendergast the club secretary (also a past pupil) thanked the school for the great support and for the great decorating that had been done in the lead up to the game. Both he and club Chairman William O’Shea encouraged the children to continue practicing their skills and one day we would get our own opportunity to win a county final. We say well done to everyone involved especially past pupils Stephen, Emmet, Eoghain, Terry, Jason, Aaron, John R, Liam, Shane, John, Eoin and Michael
