Maths week has taken place this week at school. Hurricane Ophelia shortened it but more activities are planned for next week.

The students enjoyed their maths trails. Some classes combined to do these. Students used the outside space to discover shape, area, perimeter and number work.

There are many different ways to measure. Some are exact and others are an estimation. Students in senior infants used socks to measure their heights.
