…And the Last Shall be First!

First Form were not about to let all the other classes grab the Maths glory!  This just in from Mr. Barry Gleeson about his boys’ hijinks during that week of numeracy madness!   As last week was Maths week, an emphasis was placed on our problem solving and Maths exploration skills. First Form split into groups and went to Herbert Park to try and find as many different shapes as they could. It was very successful and the children did a great job working together to explore the area. They found triangular leaves, oval feathers, spherical conkers, cylindrical trees, rectangular stones, the square area of the field and the all-important circular sun in the sky (though explained to be a sphere later on!). A great day and lesson for all the class.
