This season began on Ash Wednesday when the whole school attended mass and received the ashes from Father Tony. We examined what actions we might take  in order to support each other and in particular our families. Some of these good deeds will be shared soon.

Maths – 909 Club

This week we were busy little bees investigating  place value concepts . Here we worked with the number 909 – So what is the 9 worth?? Hmm – Thankfully we were able to work out  that where you place the digits affects their value  –  How about that!
