I’d like to point you towards a set of YouTube Videos demonstrating some maths processes! Niamh is a Primary Teacher who has set up her own YouTube Channel – these short videos maybe helpful to parents when it comes to supporting your child with her maths homework. These videos are aimed mainly at teachers, but they could be very useful for you at home too! I hope you find them helpful!

With all the excitement of the build up to our confirmation day, we decided to engage with some movie editing software on our iPads. We made and starred in a Movie Trailer showing our class and how excited we were for our big day. We had to decide on the shots we wanted in our video and work in groups to come up with our storyboard before filming. Here is a link to one of our finished products… we hope you like it!
