Last week in Room 6 we were learning about card games with our KWL chart. We asked our parents to see what card games they were playing when they were young. Some of us also asked our grandparents. They liked to play Macao, Old Maid, Snap, Switch, Blackjack and Poker. We learned to play Go Fish and Old Maid. They were fun games. We ask Ms. Looney if we can play them everyday!

All week we had fun playing with the Numicon. Numicon are little shapes with numbers of circles inside. It was like playtime when we were learning maths. Numicon helps us with our maths. It helps us learn. We even used it to count in Irish. Sometimes we have challenges with our Numicon. We had to use only one type of Numicon shape to cover the whole board. If you used 10s to cover the whole board, you would only need ten of them. If you were using 5s, you would need twenty of them. If you were using 4s, you would have twenty-five. Numicons are fun to use! Numicons are the best! For more photographs, click...

The cars were the most popular vehicles. Motor bikes, tractors and buses were the least popular vehicles. To view more images click...
