Today we split into groups to see how many of our shoes make up 1 metre. We then mesaured the length of our classroom and the length of the third class corridor. It took 30 shoes to measure the length of our class and 66 to measure the length of the 3rd class corridor!!
We presented our projects last week. We each did a project on a county from one of the four provinces.
We traced and measured the length of our shoes today in Maths. Despite the smell, we all had great fun!
We had great fun yesterday stuffing ourselves with pancakes! Today is the start of Lent so we are doing our best to give up something and to carry out a good deed everyday.
We are learning a poem to help us remember all the counties of Ireland!
We are Munster’s counties fair.
Cork, Kerry, Limerick Clare,
Waterford, Tipperary here we are,
Welcoming you from near and far.
Leinster is beyond compare,
Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Kildare,
Wexford, Offaly, Laois, Kilkenny, Longford and Louth are as good as any.
Meath, Westmeath and that is all. over now to province small.
Connaught is the smallest oh,
Galway, Leitrim and Mayo,
Roscommon, Sligo that’s the lot,
Just one more verse for you I’ve got.
We are Ulster’s counties nine,
Let’s forget the dividing line,
Donegal, Derry, Antrim, Down, all our counties of renown.
Armagh, Monaghan and Tyrone, Cavan, Fermanagh now all are known.
