Maths in Rathbeggan!

On the 4th of December we went to Rathbeggan Lakes in Meath. Our maths teachers told us that we were going to do maths equations in a field.

When we arrived we met the owner and he told us exactly what we were going to do. They split us up into groups of 4. They told us that we were going to be solving maths problems together and who ever did the best won a prize.

So we all set off and started on our maths problems and there was ducks and geese following us!! Everyone did maths problems around the lake and it was really fun!My group finished 5 challenges but unfortunately we didn't win the prize!

For lunch we stooped in Blanchardstown shopping centre for a few hours. We also got to have a little browse around the shops which is always fun!

Great day out!:)

RSA and TangoBot!

Another trip took us to Punchestown for a road safety show. There was loads of other schools there with us and it was packed!
There was police cars, guards, NYPD, ambulances and much more.
for the first hour or so we just went around looking at different stalls and also getting free stuff!:P Around half way through our wander we saw TangoBot. This was a robot made by NASA! T o be honest he was quite scary and liked to follow people around the place!



We also saw Johnny Doyle and he had a stall set up too!

At 11:30 we got a talk on how you should be careful on roads. There was also videos and photos to show what could happen if you're not careful! It wasn't to scare you it was for our own good!
 I think if people are just a bit more careful on the roads there doesn't have to be as much accidents on the roads!
All in all great day out!:)

On the 27th of November we had a bake sale. We thought it would be a good idea to help all the Philippians after the disaster that happened to them.

Tys and fifth years had to bake or donate money, but Ms L also encouraged people to bake. Unfortunately I didn't have time to bake but I donated money instead. The money we raised went to UNICEF  Ireland and then they'd send it on to the Philippians.

It was great to see that so many people went to the effort of baking for it.

Over all we raised over €1500 and everyone left lunch with big bellies!!:P
