We had a spooktacular day here in St Joseph’s CBS.
The 3rd and 4th classes took part in a table quiz for maths week.
There were some fantastic mathematicians on display and they worked out some very difficult maths problems. Not to mention the boys watching on, that were eager to display their mathematical knowledge.
It was a closely fought contest between all of the teams, but it was the experience of both 4th classes that seen them battle it out to a controversial finish.
After a recount of points it was G5 that were the eventual winners.
G5 solving the Moving Coin Puzzle. These moving coin puzzles were popularised by the great English puzzler Henry Dudeney. They can be played with coins, buttons, counters or any objects that make two distinct sets. The aim of this “E” puzzle (so-called because of its shape) is to reverse the positions of the Green and Red counters in the grid.
This week G5 had the opportunity to see a popular author speak about his books in Drogheda Library. His books make use of football and sports to engage all ages of reader.
Tom Palmer has an international reputation in reader development. Tom has been the official writer for the Premier League Reading Stars scheme for five years.
We look forward to welcoming back all our students tomorrow morning at 9.05 am. A particular word of welcome to all our new students in third class and, for the first time, in junior infants.
