Maths Week

16 October 2019

This week the boys are really enjoying Maths Week. We are doing our homework on a website called Mangahigh and everyday in class we are doing tricky Maths problems. We also made impressive 2D shape monsters yesterday and did Maths stations with Ms Cormican today. We played pattern games online, dice games, card games and did tangrams.

4th Class History Tour to Portumna Workhouse and Castle

07 October 2019

Today 4th Class went to visit the Portumna Workhouse, built after the Famine but during a time of extreme hardship in Ireland. We visited the Workhouse where families were split up into men, women, boys and girls possibly never to see each other again. We saw where the laundry, coal bunkers, the silent eating hall where they were given only picking to eat all were. The people were desperate and had no choice but to go there. Such a sad time in Ireland 馃槩 We fit in a flying visit to Portumna Castle too and into the Forest Park to identify leaves from various trees. 馃崄馃尶
