Maths Week in Ms O’Brien’s 3rd Class

We had great fun celebrating maths week from the 12th to the 16th of October this year. Each day we did some fun extra maths activities alongside our maths lessons.   Our first activity was the Emoji Code Breaker. The children really enjoyed cracking the codes and while It was a little tricky at first, writing the digits over the emoji faces helped a lot. We even had to use our addition and subtraction with renaming to solve some of the problems. On Wednesday we played an exciting game of ‘Mathopoly’. This game is similar to Monopoly except to get points you must answer different maths questions. As you move your counter around the board, each square you land on has a different question for you to answer. There were also some special squares on the board that could make you pick up a ‘chance’ or ‘challenge’ card. The ‘chance’ cards were tricks or treats, so sometimes it meant you lost some points. The children really enjoyed playing this with their classmates. We were learning about lines and angles in maths that week, so we used our new knowledge to create some artwork. We drew cityscapes where we focussed on horizontal, vertical, diagonal, and parallel lines, as well as right angles. We got very creative with our drawings and use of colour, and really enjoyed colouring in all the different sections of our masterpieces. During the week, we were very lucky and had opportunities to take our learning outside. One day we played a version of maths ‘rock, paper, scissors’. In teams, we each took it in turns to hop...

Intercultural Day 2020

This year we celebrated Intercultural Day in a different way. The children celebrated at home with their families, they made and displayed flags, wore traditional clothing and made traditional food. We asked our pupils to send us some pictures or videos of them celebrating Intercultural Day and Ms. Delaney and Ms. Forde have compiled them into a Junior and a Senior video. We would like to dedicate our Intercultural Day video to all Front Line Workers to show our appreciation for all they have done.

Multilingual Storytelling Project

One of our amazing families have been working on a project with Fingal Libraries called Multilingual Storytelling. Also, they have asked other families to join in the fun and read their stories too which has been really successful. They have already created some videos of storytelling in English, Spanish and Polish. There are some wonderful stories and it is lovely to hear them in different languages. So you will see lots of familiar faces from our school. If you and your family would like to share a story in your language please let your child’s class teacher know and we can help to arrange it! Here are the links to some of the...

Online Learning in Scoil Chormaic CNS!

Since Monday 20th April, our children have been engaged in online learning through the Seesaw platform. It has been a great way for our teachers to reconnect with the children and their families during this difficult time. The teachers have been really excited to see what their students have been getting up to at home and the children are showing that they can still do some lessons, get lots of exercise and be helpful around the house! If any parents/guardians or children have not received a link to sign up to the Seesaw platform, can you please send your email address to emails@scoilchormaiccns.ie with your child’s name and name of their class teacher(s). We hope that all of our families are keeping safe and we look forward to seeing you all again...
