3- D Shapes

6th class have been learning about 3-D shapes. Here are some shapes we made:


Can you count how many faces are on each shape?

Did you know that another name for a triangular based pyramid is a tetrahedron?

I f you are visiting Room 12 have a look at our 3-D shapes.

Gaelic Football Training

Today we were training in school. We are learning to play Gaelic Football. Our coaches names are Jake and Liam. We were running in the hall, very slowly and very quickly. We practiced rolling the ball, throwing the ball and catching the ball. We had to count how many times we could catch the ball without dropping. Taylormay said “We did it 3 times, then 5 times”. Gary and Mikey caught it 20 times in a row. Anthony says that himself and Seán caught it a million times but teacher is not so sure!
Basia said “I like Gaelic Football”
Hope said that she liked when the coach held up the red cone to tell them to freeze.
Shannon liked it when he put up the green one!
We are really looking forward to the coaches coming back next week.

Engineers Week -3rd Class in Sligo IT

On Tuesday, as part of Engineers Week, 3rd class attended a ‘Magical Science & Engineering Show’ hosted by Sue McGrath in Sligo IT.

It was a very entertaining and exciting show where we saw experiments like the fire breathing dragon, the power of magnets and how to make a gyroscope using a bicycle wheel.

Maths Puzzle

 Chocolate Maths


We tried this in our class and it worked. See if it works for you!

First of all, pick the number of times a week that you eat chocolate. This number must be more than one but less than ten.

  1. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold).
  2. Add 5 (for Sunday).
  3. Multiply it by 50.
  4. Add 1750.
  5. Add the last two digits from the year you last had a birthday. So if your last birthday was in 2009, add 9, if the your last birthday was in 2011 then add 11.
  6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should now have a three digit number. The first digit will be your original number i.e. how many times you eat chocolate each week. The next two digits give your age.

Making Snowmen with 2D and 3D shapes in 4th Class

We are learning about 2D and 3D shapes in Maths and when the snow fell this week we were allowed out in it to play and make Snowmen. We rolled a cylinder shape for the body and a sphere shape for the head. It took a few of us to lift some of the spheres onto the cylinders as they were very heavy. Some of us got together to make a really big snowman.

Then we put in 2d circles for eyes and a triangle for the nose. We used small circular stones in a line for the mouth. We made parallel lines in the snow as we rolled the cylinders and spheres. We also made some perpendicular lines.
It was very cold so we wore hats, coats and gloves.

Unfortunately it rained that night and our snowmen were gone the next day but at least we have the photos to remember how much fun we had.
