Coding in 4th, 5th and 6th Class

December 12th, 2017 by Ms Wynne

All of our 4th, 5th and 6th classes participated in a coding session with Microsoft Ireland volunteers last Thursday. Ten sessions in total took place with amazing volunteers guiding our students. Since then, students are keen to use their computer time to continue to learn more about coding as they are finding it so interesting. A big thank you to the visiting volunteer group.

Mathletics Mornings for 3rd Class Parents

December 4th, 2017 by Mr. Carty

We recently held two Mathletics mornings for 3rd class parents. We had 19 parents show up, and we demonstrated how the children can use Mathletics, how staff use it, and also, how important it is for parents to support their use of Mathletics. We have found over the years that those who engage most with Mathletics often do best in their tests. 

We encourage everyone to continue doing at least 10 minutes of Mathletics every night. It is great seeing all the pupils getting on the Hall of Fame and also the classes doing so well. We often have the top pupils and classes in Ireland and Europe. It is also great hearing who is Mathlete of the Week in each class every Friday. 

Keep up the good work, and thanks to all the parents who came to the mornings last week and who are supporting their children’s learning at home!

Data in 6th Class

October 1st, 2017 by Ms Wynne

Graphs Report

We used graphs to show our eye colour and the average rainfall in Mayo, Dublin and Clare. We used a trend graph for the rainfall and a pie chart for eye colour. For the eye colour we did tallies to see who had blue, brown and green eyes. Then we put them into percentages. After we had all of our information we drew our pie chart.

For our trend graph we looked up the information in  website and it showed us the rain for every month in millimetres. We converted the mm to centimetres. We also used rounding of numbers. Then we drew the graph on special paper for graphs.

I had lots of fun drawing graphs and you will too.

Talbot Computer Science Club

June 9th, 2017 by Ms Wynne

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.
