Hello Kids and Parents,
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and had great fun. I would love to hear all the cool and exciting things that you got up to if you wish to share with me on SeeSaw or on the school twitter page.. This week we are looking at the theme of ‘Our talents’ and we would love if you could share with us your amazing talents that you have been working on or have learned since you have been off school, maybe you have learned a new soccer or GAA skill, maybe a new rugby pass, perhaps a new horse skill, an art talent, maybe a song or dance or maybe something that is unique to you. You can share with me here on SeeSaw and on the school’s twitter page. We love seeing them all! I have attached all your school work for this week. Remember you can send drawings, videos and voice recordings of your work too. If you have any questions or do not understand anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I am looking forward to seeing all your wonderful work again this week.
Best wishes,
Ms.Keating.

Today we are moving on to Data in chapter 27 page 167. I would like you to look at B and examine the data and answer the questions. Remember the average is the typical number that comes from a list of figures so in your class the average age would be 11 because you add up all the ages and then divide by the number of children.
So students ages , 10,11,11,11,12.
Then add them up and divided by 5 = 11
Answer question C and try the challenges.
