This week is Maths Week Ireland. The aim of Maths Week is to encourage children at a young age to have a positive image and attitude towards maths. Maths is all around us and should be enjoyed. The websites mangahigh.com and mathsisfun.com should be used regularly to reinforce what is being learned in school. Both these websites can be accessed on our school website.
