March Maths Puzzle

It was Paul’s birthday and he went to the pet shop and bought a gold-fish. A very special gold-fish. The pet shop owner told him that the goldfish needed exactly one litre of water in the bowl.

No more – no less!


Now Paul has a problem as he can only find two containers at home, with measurements of them. One container holds 4 litres and the other hold 7 litres.

How can Paul use these two containers to put exactly 1 litre of water into the fish bowl for the very special gold-fish?

WEEE – Our Talk on Recycling Batteries.


On Monday 12th March, Brenda came to our school to talk about the importance of recycling batteries and electrical products i.e. TVs, playstations toasters.

First, Brenda introduced Mr.Sparky. Mr.Sparky likes it when we recycle batteries. We got big blue boxes from WEEE Ireland to put our old batteries into at school. WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

When the boxes are full we can call WEEE Ireland and they will collect them. They will bring them to their recycling plants where they will be put into machines to break them up into smaller pieces. It is important to recycle batteries and electrical products as if they are put into our bins for the landfill they can damage the soils around them. The recycled products can be used to make more new batteries that we need in our homes.

In our school we can bring in old batteries and we will collect them for recycling.
