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 míadh 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.

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!
