Money methods

Our maths topic for the month of March has been the measures strand of money.

The students engaged in sorting and matching activities using 1c, 2c, 5c and 10c coins before using crayons and paper to make either coin rubbings or coin monsters. 

     

 

Junior Infants and Senior infants enjoyed calculating the total amount within a piggy bank and played "first to make 5c/10c" by rolling a dice and collecting the appropriate coin. 

                  

                

 

The children developed their understanding of how various values can be represented by exchanging collections of 1c or 2c coins for 5c or 10c coins. 

     

 

First class completed daily problem solving activities and practised exchanging collections of smaller coins for 20c, 50c and 1 euro as well as playing "first to 20c". 

     

 

All pupils enjoyed practising the skills and knowledge mentioned above by role playing shop and restaurant within the classroom. 

Light

We engaged in a light circuit during which we attempted to identify a single object and to complete an obstacle course both in the absence of light or in darkness, using our dark den and blindfolds. The children found both of these tasks challenging. They decided that we need light to be able to see and that it is difficult to preform certain tasks in the dark. 

 

             

 

We identified different sources of light and discussed whether they were natural sources or manufactured.

      

            

 

We watched a video that explained how light travels in straight lines. If light passes through an object, it is transparent. While opaque objects cause the light to change its direction or to "bounce". 

We talked about how a dark shadow can form when sunlight is blocked by an object. We explored this concept further by going out into the yard and using chalk to trace around our partner's shadow. By blocking the sun with our bodies, we each formed our own shadow on the tarmac.

Today, take a deep breath and take a mindful moment to focus on things you are thankful for.

Share that memory with people. It can be face to face or through social media. It doesn’t matter except to spread happiness!

2) National Spring Clean in Faughart - Glantachán Earraigh i bhFochaird

The Community Alert Group in Faughart have organised a clean up in Faughart on Saturday 13th March. The challenge for Room 3 is to write a slogan for the event to encourage as many locals as possible to help with the clean-up. Remember slogans are often short, catchy and easy to remember. Much like a song chorus that gets stuck in your head, it needs to have a rhythm or sound that rolls off the tongue and is instantly recognisable.

Here are some famous slogans to help inspire you to create a memorable slogan for the Faughart Spring Clean on 13th March.

Add your Slogan HERE. Add pictures, animations and transitions for effect!

3) Louth GAA Recorded Lesson

The pick up

Here are some tips from Anthony for practising this skill:

- Place the ball on a height so you can get your toe under the ball, like a bottle cap or cushion.

- When the ball is rolling away from you stop it with your foot or hand and then try the pick-up.

- Slow and steady wins the race!
