The children from 6th class Room 29 worked with our new set of spheros in the HUB today. They used the Sphero EDU app on our new ipads to move and control their spheres!
A Sphero is an interactive, programmable, blue tooth enabled ball. The children drew shape paths for their sphero and controlled it to follow the path. They also worked with our Sphero Map of Ireland to control the ball as it travelled to different destinations on the map. Some fantastic problem-solving and collaboration to be seen!!
Ms. Moriarty’s 5th class had great fun learning to code using Dance Party on code.org today.

Ms O’Connor’s class went on their first maths trail on Friday to celebrate Maths week. They want to send a HUGE thanks to Ms Doyle’s 6th class who were amazing buddies. They all put on their “maths eyes” and went on the hunt. They had to make circles from stones, squares from twigs and fins 4 cones and 3 bugs. It was a great maths morning in Junior Infants.
