Last month Mr Smyth’s Class learned about Recycling. This month in Art we are doing construction and have created very cool Junkyard Robots from recyclable materials we found around our homes.

This month in Maths, Mr Smyth’s Class are focussing on Data. We have been doing surveys about people’s favourite colours and putting them into pictograms. Check out the survey we carried out with Junior Infants. Which colour is the most popular?
Mr Smyth and 1st and 2nd class went for a nature walk in the Phoenix Park this week. We looked at the animals around us- Swans, Water Hens, Ducks and Squirrels and examined the trees in the park- Maple, Oak and Horse Chestnut trees. The children examined the colours of the leaves around them for their Art work this week and they discovered and collected leaves, branches and seeds from a number of trees.
On Thursday we had an exciting (and stressful!) day as the finals of the Maths Week Tables Championships took place. A huge well done to all the children who reached the finals and showed everyone their amazing number skills and strategies. Congratulations to Alan, our junior champion and well done to Marta and Karol who were our runners up. In the senior final it was congratulations to Alistair who came in 1st place and his worthy runners up were Daniel and Leon. Well done to all involved.
