PostHeaderIcon Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library

On February 26th, Ms. Mc Donagh’s 4th class took part in an event to mark Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library. The children got to tackle ten different engineering stations in small teams leading through the library. They were challenged in construction, mechanisms, simple circuits and forces. They also tried to identify mystery objects to gain bonus points.

It was a really interesting and enjoyable day and we learned lots, both about engineering and the library itself. Did you know that an Irish engineer, John Philip Holland designed the first submarine?

Check out the slideshow to see some of the challenges that the children faced.

We love maths at Gardiner Street School.

We have lots of fun ways of practicing all the skills we learn in our maths lessons.

We play games about adding up, and making 100 Squares and in the senior classes we play games using out multiplication and division skills!

Dice Addition Games

Playing games is a great way to practise what we’re learning.
