Maths Factor

Everyday at 10:00a.m. Ms. Fitzgerald's class make their way over to Arás Phádraig to Maths Factor. In Maths Factor boys' maths skills are improved by teachers teaching them about sections of maths with simple, fun games. The teachers who help the boys in Maths Factor are Ms. Murphy, Ms. Fitzgerald, Ms. Bradfield and Ms. O' Brien. I had interviewed four boys from Ms. Fitzgerald's 1st class to ask them about Maths Factor. They told me that the best part of Maths Factor were the games the played with the teachers! In these games they practise many maths skills such as; counting, pairing and counting in multiples, some games are harder than others but they said those were thier favouite games because they loved a good challenge! They mentioned they learn a lot about maths during Maths Factor.  The last question I asked them was woul you like to do Maths Factor after you are finshed and I was blown away with a huge entusiastic YES! After that I knew they definietly enjoyed Maths Factor. Maths Factor is a great way to teach children about different parts of maths in a fun, entusiastic way. Maths Fator has been apart of the school for many years now and hopefully will be for years to come!

Hair-Raising Fun!

The boys in first class really enjoyed Science Week. They loved carrying out experiments and made great predictions!
For one of the investigations they rubbed a balloon on their jumpers around 20 times and held it above their heads.
They were amazed to see the Static Electricity they created when their hair stuck to the balloons!

First Class Narrative Writing

First Class have worked so hard this term! We are working on Narrative stories. Here are some we worked on. We used our imaginations and came up with some wonderful ideas!! Well done!

Bí ag Caint!

The boys have worked so hard on their Gaeilge. They have been learning loads of new words!  
‘Is maith liom úll’
‘Is maith liom bainne’

Amazing Art!
The boys in first class are so creative and have done some beautiful art work over the last few months! They loved using the Artist’s Chair to discuss their work. Here are some of their creations....

   First class entertainment

On Wednesday the 15 of March the first class did drama of the Grammy Awards in Irish. The presenters were Ms Murray and Mr Duffy .First up was Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga and her backup singers and finally Taylor Swift. When the award was being presented Kanye West tried taking the award from Taylor swift. All of the classes enjoyed the drama by the boys. Then the two first classes did the haka in Irish.

Iftikhaar, Ben, Frank and Alex from the school Reporter's Group visited 1st class and got to interview one of the boys.
Here are his thoughts.
Name: Tommy Murphy
He is 7 years old. He plays for Brian Dillon’s GAA club. He also likes to swim in his spare time.
He has two sisters whose names are Isabelle and Chloe. His favourite subject and thing in school is maths because he’s good at it. Below are his opinions on his teachers. Ms. Fitzgerald, take some notes.
I like her. She is very kind and helps us learn. But there is one thing I don’t like about her. I don’t like the way she gives me easy sums. Ms Fitzgerald he’s good, we tested him.
I like Lunchtime Pals because we get to play games we can’t play in normal break. Penalties are my favourite game.



Stories
Hello my name is Kyle Cronin and I am in Ms. Fitzgerald’s class. We are doing stories on St. Bridget.
In the story the King of Leinster is giving St. Bridget as much land as her cloak covers the ground. To everyone’s surprise the cloak covered a lot of land. When she spreads out the cloak it gets bigger and bigger. She got enough space to build a castle for her mom and dad. My favourite part of the story is when she spreads out her cloak. I like this story because it is about St. Bridget. St. Bridget's Day is the 1st of February.

St. Patrick’s Boys’ First Class Interviews

The first class boys transferred from the fantastic St. Patrick’s Infants school (over the wall) this September.  The boys are settling into the school and getting used to all the new teachers and making new friends.  
Mr. Foley’s fifth class were looking at interviews at the time and we needed a suitable group to interview and we thought the first class were the right people to interview.
We interviewed Ms. Fitzgerald’s class first and it went really well. The first class were very polite and they answered all the questions. We also interviewed the other first class, Ms. Ní Chatháin’s class.  They were all very excited, gave us interesting answers to our questions and listened very carefully.
Some examples of these interviews are below.Welcome to the school first class boys and we hope that you enjoy the next six years of fun!
