In 5th class this week, we were learning about decimals. Decimals have a lot of different uses in the real world, for example money, weight and length. Using Aldi catalogues, we made shopping lists and calculated how much a weekly shop would cost. We then calculated our change from 50 euro. Next, we added the weights of the products we ‘bought’ to find how heavy our shopping baskets would be. It was really fun to see that maths is all around us and how useful it is! Without knowing our decimals and place value, shopping could be difficult. It motivated us to learn more about decimals.
We are now taking enrolments for Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st Class, 2nd Class, 3rd Class, 4th Class, 5th Class and 6th Class.[button text="read more" link="https://www.powerstownet.com/enrolment/"]
