Problem Solving in 5th Class

For Maths today, James’ 5th class were working on their problem solving ability. We were inspired by the ‘Number Sandwiches’ problem (Click here if you want to try it out yourself!).

We were able to solve it with for 3s and 4s, worked out it was impossible for 5s and 6s but no one has solved the 7s yet!

Could you be the first?

Wonderful News!

Three members of our 5th class Global Citizens group went to the Department of Education today to represent the school in the regional final of the Our World Irish Aid Awards. Their project had been selected as in the top 15 of the hundreds of entries submitted from all across Leinster.

The group represented the school wonderfully and had lots of fun playing with a big Inflatable globe!

We were all delighted when it was announced that our project was going to go through to the National Finals on June 13th!
