Maths Week 2023

We marked ‘Maths Week’ this week, from Monday 16th October to Friday 20th October. ➕➖✖️➗

We have had a very busy week in Knockskeagh doing lots of different Maths activities! We had Maths art challenges, quizzes, Maths games on the iPads, an orienteering Maths code-breaker challenge around the school grounds, “Maths Eyes” stations in the Infant classrooms where the children participated in different Maths activities and trying to figure out different Maths puzzles.

Everyone was given the chance to guess how many sweets were in their class jar, with the winner of each class getting to keep the whole jar. 🍬Looking at the photos, can you guess how many sweets were in the jars? laughing Congrats to the winners in each classroom! 👏

It really was great fun discovering Maths all around our school during the week!!

Beach Clean Up Day 🗑️

Here at Knockskeagh, we are currently working towards getting our 8th Green Flag – Global Citizenship Marine Environment. As part of the application process, our GreenSchools Committee participated in a beach clean up at Inchydoney Beach on Wednesday 31st May. 🗑️

Using our pickers, we picked up almost 3 bags of rubbish from the beach! We hope people visiting the beach during the summer will leave it tidy! 🚮 At Knockskeagh National School, we are advocates of “Leave no trace”. 🗑️

After the clean up, we explored the rockpool areas at the beach known as the intertidal zone. The committee discussed the impact that litter would have on the different sea creatures and how it is so important to take our rubbish home with us.🗑️

It was a very enjoyable day for all, made all the better by the beautiful sunshine. ☀️

    Please see our gallery below for a sample of what we got up to on our clean up!
