This is Maths Week all over Ireland. In St. Joseph’s we are having fun with practical maths., maths activities and ICT. We are having maths trails, bingo, maths table quizzes, maths board games, and problem solving activities throughout the week. There were prizes and fun for all.
As we start into our second year of the Comenius Project, A Window on Europe – Learning to Learn, the partner schools from Ireland, Spain, France, Italy and Poland met in Stavanger, Norway to plan the activities for the next year.
This is going to be a very exciting year for St. Joseph’s as are hosting the closing ceremony in May. Teachers from all the countries involved in the project will be attending as well as some pupils. Other activities planned for the year include sharing Christmas carols, comparing cultures and festivals, environmental awareness, creating and sharing a virtual tourist for each country, comparing local heroes past and present and creating a final newsletter. Each country will also have a separate blog in which they will share their school activities with the other partners.
Today we had a cricket blitz for all classes from 4th to 6th in CYM in Terenure. It was an ideal day for cricket with the sun shining and the grounds looking splendid. The blitz was organised by Tim from CYM. Tim visits the school each week and coaches the boys in cricket. All the boys were presented with medals after the event. Thank you to all involved in the organisation of this event.
