Comhghairdeas do fhoireann Iománaíochta na scoile a d'imir thar chionn inniu sa chomortas INTO Mini 7s. Bhuaigh siad a mbealach tríd go dtí craobh an chomórtais, áit a chaill siad - agus mí-adh mór orthu!

Congratulations to our school Hurling team who represented us brilliantly in the INTO Mini 7s competition in Ahascragh. They powered their way through to the final of the competition. They played very well in the final, but unfortunately today was not to be our day - we were quite unlucky and went down fighting by 4 points.

We are looking at team sports hoodies at present.

They would be available to children who play on school panels.

We are looking at a navy hoodie with a red trim - the school colours.

The hoodies would cost about 18 euro each and could be worn in conjunction with the school uniform.

 

 

Hints for Families to help with Tables!


A. Adding (Suimiú):


a. + 0 When you add 0, there is no change.


b . + 1 When you add 1, the number gets bigger by 1 etc.


c . Doubles: Children should know doubles off by heart . ..........................eg. 3+3=6 4+4+8 5+5=10 etc.
Near Doubles: 4 + 5 = 4 + 4 + 1 or 5 + 5 – 1 5 + 6 = 5 + 5 + 1 or 6 + 6 – 1


d . Buy one get one free 3 + 5 = 5 + 3 or 7 + 2 = 2 + 7 or 2 + 4 = 4 + 2. This is always the case.


e . Know your 10’s: 1 + 9 , 2 + 8, 3 + 7, 4 + 6, 5 + 5, etc.


f . Use 10 when doing sums 9 + 3 = 12 that’s the same as 9 + (1 + 2) = 12 etc.


g . Work on number stories! If I know that 2 apples plus 1 apple is 3 apples then I can work out:
....................1 apple + 2 apples = 3 apples
....................3 apples - 2 apples = 1 apple
....................3 apples - 1 apple = 2 apples


B. Multiplication Tables (Táblaí Méadú):


Tables need to be known by heart!


a. Practice doubles with your child: 2x2; 3x3; 4x4; 5x5; 6x6; 7x7; 8x8; etc


b. Practice patterns with your child: 10,20,30,40,50, etc...................5, 10, 15,20,25,30,35, etc

....................2,4,6,8,10,12,14, etc.... ..............3,6,9,12,15,18,21, etc. ....................7,14,21,28,35,42, etc


c . Buy one get one free! Know your number facts: (When I know 1 fact I know 4!)
............eg. 6 x 8 = 48
..................8 x 6 = 48
................48 ~ 8 = 6
................48 ~ 6 = 8


x 0 When you multiply by 0 the answer is always 0.


x 1 When you multiply by 1 you get the same number.


x 2 The number plus the number again (doubles should be known by heart!)


x 3 The number plus the number plus the number/(the double plus the number)


x 4 Double plus double eg. 4 x 7 = (7 + 7) + (7 + 7)


x 5 Practice your patterns (5, 10, 15, 20 …………….60)


x 9 Multiply by 10 and take away the first number, eg. 8 x 9 = (8 x 10) – 8


x 10 Practice your patterns.


x 6, x7, x 8 ? When a child knows their doubles they are a huge help in doing many sums:
.......................eg. 8 x 7 = (7 x 7) + 7
............................7 x 6 = (6 x 6) + 6
............................9 x 8 = (8 x 8) + 8


Turn your tables round!
..........eg. 5 x 7, I know 7 x 5 from my pattern work.
..........eg. 5 x 9 = 9 x 5 = I know 9 x 5 from my pattern work.


When children have a good grasp of multiplication tables they are ready to learn division.
m.sh

• 8 x 7 = 56
• 7 x 8 = 56
• 56 ~ 7 = 8
• 56 ~ 8 = 7
• 1/8 de 56 = 7
• 1/7 de 56 = 8

Using these tips will help your child with their tables and deepen their understanding of how numbers work!
