Today at assembly Mr. Bannon and Mr. Byrne showcased two projects created at Talbot’s CS club. Well done to the children involved in their creation. They were super cool, with great dialogue, visuals, action and sound effects. Looking forward to seeing more. The CS club runs for two more weeks before we break for summer holidays.

November 30th, 2016 by Ms Wynne


Mr Molloy’s 3rd class are learning about fraction equivalence through working with cuisenaire rods and a real fraction number-line.

Test yourself:

  1. How many quarters are equivalent to a half? 
  2. How many halves are equivalent to a unit?
  3. How many eighths are equivalent to a half?
  4. How many eighths are equivalent to a quarter?
  5. How many eighths are equivalent to three quarters?

How old are the teachers’ cars?

November 27th, 2014 by Mr. Stuart

teachers cars at Talbot

Do they all have new ones?

We—Mr Molloy’s 5th class—collected data
on the 6th October 2014 to find out!

This is what we found out…

  • The cars were from 2000 to 2014.
  • There were 55 staff cars in all (including workers building the new classroom, and including staff of Nano Nagle school right beside us).
  • 11 of them (11/55 or 20%) were 5 years old or newer… which means that 80% were over 5 years old! We think this might be because people can’t afford to buy new cars.
  • There’s more older than newer cars. In fact there were 18 cars over 10 years old—that’s 18 out of 55, or 18/55, which is 33%–that’s like 1 in 3.
  • There were 5 cars from 2005, 5 from 2006, 9 from 2007, 4 from 2008, 6 from 2009, 6 from 2010, 1 from 2011, 1 from 2012, 2 from 2013, and 1 from 2014.
  • 2007 was the year with the most cars bought.
  • Half the cars were bought in 2007 or before, half in 2007 or after.
  • Only 1 car was bought this year (so far).
  • We expected to see more than one jeep in the carpark but there was only one.

Have a look at the photo to see the detail.

Data Collection Results 5th Mr Molloy Oct 2014

Next year we think it would be good to collect just the data for Scoil Talbot’s staff. We’ll be in 6th class so we might do it—we’d like to. #Excited!

Written by Daniel Olokun, Daragh Fleming, Samantha O’Donnell, and Grace Adenola

Three years ago, another class did the same thing. Click HERE to see what they found out. What was similar (like) and what was different?

Maths Buddies!

January 30th, 2013 by Ms. Byrne

Today we started a pilot project with 6th and 3rd class! Each 3rd class child is matched with a senior Maths Buddy! The 6th class children are given 3 maths word problems to solve. They work out the answers first in their own class room. They use problem solving strategies to work out the answer. They then meet with their junior buddy and help them work out the problems using the strategies!
