Maths week is almost upon us folks and here at St. Josephs we have lots happening to keep our Mathematicians busy over the coming week. Our school is already registered at www.mathsweek.ie and we are delighted to say that we were the first school in Drogheda to register.
Our list of activities throughout the week is varied and wide ranging and has something for everyone. Each day on our website there will be puzzles for the whole family to get stuck into. The answers will be given out at the end of the week so if you don’t get the answer straight away then just keep persevering.
In the school we are having a Maths Quiz for each of the Senior Class groups. The competition promises to be fierce and it will be interesting to see which classes emerges on top.
On Wednesday we are having a Puzzle day throughout the school so if your child comes home talking in riddles then you’ll know why.
Here at St. Josephs we actively encourage Mathematical thinking every week of the year however we always love to celebrate Maths Week as it is always a great week. Check back in with us next week for some great links, tip for parents in helping their children with homework and of course pictures of us all enjoying Maths week!!!
