Maths Focused Activities – Times Tables Rockstars
Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes are taking part in a competition called Times Tables Rockstars (https://ttrockstars.com/).
As part of their every day maths homework, the children had to log on (https://ttrockstars.com/) Monday to Thursday evening and complete some of the competitions on TTRS website to see who would be the overall winner within the school.
All the children did very well at this activity and it was a great opportunity for them to practice and reinforce their tables while also have fun!
Well done to all the girls in Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Class!
Our results within the school were; Sean H (5th) – First Place, Sean M (5th) – Second Place and Eddie (3rd) – Third Place. Well done boys and congratulations!

Who knew spaghetti had other purposes other than being plain delicious!?
We had LOTS of fun creating 2D and 3D shapes with sticks of spaghetti.
Maths Stations with an emphasis on using our fine motor skills.
The children created patterns using various concrete resources, matched block-to-shape temaplates and even used peg boards.
Roll and Count with Cheerios and Spaghetti.
The children worked in pairs to roll and count. Whatever number the die landed on, represented the number of Cheerios to be added to the stick of spaghetti.
Not all spaghetti sticks managed to stay in an upright position!!
