Last Wednesday, the children had the opportunity to take part in ‘Maths Power Hour.’ They worked in groups and changed stations every 15 minutes.
Station 1: Darts
Station 2: Maths games
Station 3: Numeracy activities on the iPads
Station 4: Completing written activities
The children had great fun and are working on further developing their Numeracy skills through active activities. We are looking forward to the next session!
On Friday, the child had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite character from a book. The costumes were fabulous.
Also, to celebrate the day, the children took part in DEAR time-‘ Drop Everything and Read.’ The children listened to an extract from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and then completed activities on this amazing book. The children loved this exercise.
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, the children dressed up as their favourite character. They also had time to explore our new reading app Epic, which allows the children to lose themselves in a wide genre of books, some audio and some read along also. Each child chose a book to listen to today and gave feedback to the rest of the class. They also completed a written activity based on their dress up character. We always read alot of books in class, this week however It is safe to say we broke a record! One of the favourites of the week was a story called ‘The book with no pictures’. With loud chanting ‘AGAIN ! AGAIN!’ It was without a doubt a hit in class. You can check out the link below to give you an insight into the type of book it is.
Remember a book is a dream that you hold in your hand!

We are are very excited to be starting our Run around Ireland challenge next week.Each class in school will aim to reach various landmark destinations around Ireland, while also sharpening our Geography Knowlegde. Each lap of our Astro pitch will equate to 1km for this particular challenge and as a classroom, we will decide where we would like to visit. Keep an eye out on our Active board in the hall to monitor each class’s progress, which will be marked with coloured threads.
Thank you to the active committee and other pupils in the senior room for working out the distance from Inver to each destination! Let’s get moving!
