We have been learning about measuring length in maths. We had great fun measuring things in our class room! Our statue of Jesus measures 63 cm tall!
We made 3 D shapes using matchsticks and marshmallows today …..yum !
We had two Math Quizzes in the hall on Thursday as part of Maths Week. The teams were all mixed, with children from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th all being on teams together. Ms Geraghty, Ms Donnellan, Ms Ferguson and Mr Brown’s classes took part in the first quiz. Ms Carmody, Ms Walsh, Ms McNicholas and Ms McMahon’s classes took part in the second quiz. Everyone had a great time!
The winners of the first quiz – a draw!

Can you figure out the answer? Check on the Maths Week website for the solution!
Why was the number 6 afraid of the number 7? (Because 7 ate 9)
Why was the snake so good at math? (He was an Adder!)
How do you make 7 even? (Take away the s!)
Why didn’t the quarter roll down the hill with the nickel? (Because it had more cents.)
What shape is like a lost parrot? (A polygon!)
What becomes smaller when you turn it upside down? (The number 9)
We had great fun in maths today. Teacher rolled 3 dice and we had to add the numbers up and mark them on our bingo page!
We love maths on Thursdays and Fridays! We do Maths Circuits where we can play games and have fun!
How likely are you to win the Lotto? Although we would LOVE to say it is a definite chance, we all know that it is very unlikely. Possible – but unlikely!!
This week we were learning about the probability of certain outcomes. For example: What is the chance of rolling an odd/even number on a dice? That’s right, there is an equal chance!
We played lots of probability games like spinning a spinner and landing on different animals, flipping coins, choosing different coloured marbles out of a mystery bag. It was great fun!
Have a look at some of our photos!
This week, we have been doing money for maths. We worked with a partner in a fun shop keeper game where we made up prices for different items and had to buy them from or sell them to our partner! We had to calculate the total cost of items but most importantly… We had to make sure we received the correct change out of our spending money! We had great fun (but secretly wishing the money was real!)
