When full, a box of eggs holds 780 eggs. If there are 276 eggs in the box, how many more are needed to fill it?
Question 2:
From 812 take the sum of 359 and 186.

We were visited today by two of the local Newbridge team, who were bringing around some of the trophies which they had won with Leinster in the previous year.
Ben, one of the players, will also be coming into the school every Friday over the next few weeks to teach us some rugby skills  we're very excited about this! :) On Friday, we were very lucky to have a visitor into our class. His name was Shay Lally, and came into the school to do a music workshop with us. He showed us all the different sections of the orchestra  the string section, the percussion section, the brass section, and he taught us how it was the conductor's job to keep them all playing at the proper volume at the correct time. He also showed us how instruments could be played at different volumes  piano for softly, and forte for loudly. We got to use different types of percussion instruments to do a call and response with Shay. We finished off the workshop by using the song "Hey Ho" by the Lumineers to do a choral call and response. It sounded great!
Check out some of the pictures below to see how we got on on the day. Question 1:
How many bags of 4 carrots can I make from 76 carrots? Question 2: A car can carry 5 people. How many cars are needed to take 58 people to a match? Question 1:
How many teams of 7 can be made from 91 children? Question 2: Bill had 100 sweets. He kept 16 for himself and shared the rest equally among his 6 friends. How many sweets did each of his friends get? Over the next while, the boys will be concentrating on division in both their maths class, and in their homework. Division is splitting into equal parts or groups.It is the result of "fair sharing". Example: there are 12 chocolates, and 3 friends want to share them, how do they divide the chocolates? 12 Chocolates 12 Chocolates Divided by 3 Answer: 12 divided by 3 is 4: they get 4 each. Symbols ÷ / We use the ÷ symbol, or sometimes the / symbol to mean divide: Let's use both symbols here so we get used to them. 12 ÷ 3 = 4 12 / 3 = 4 Opposite of Multiplying Division is the opposite of multiplying. When we know a multiplication fact we can find a division fact: Example: 3 × 5 = 15, so 15 / 5 = 3. Also 15 / 3 = 5. Why? Well, think of the numbers in rows and columns like in this illustration: Multiplication......Division 3 groups of 5 make 15...so 15 divided by 3 is 5 and also: 5 groups of 3 make 15...so 15 divided by 5 is 3. So there are four related facts:
Knowing your Multiplication Tables can help you with division! Example: What is 28 ÷ 7 ? Searching around the multiplication table we find that 28 is 4 × 7, so 28 divided by 7 must be 4. Answer: 28 ÷ 7 = 4 One of the easiest ways of checking your answer is correct in division is by using the subtraction method. In fact, we can say that division is simply repeated subtraction. it also allows us to see if there is any left over the the end of the sum, as the remainder. Check out the diagram below for an easy look at this method. :) *credit to mathsisfun.com  for more information, check out some of the problems on their page! :) Question 1:
Take 376 from the sum of 234 and 487. Question 2: 78 sweets were shared equally between 5 children. How many did each get and how many were left over? Happy New Year to all in our class, and their families.
Welcome back to a brand new year, and of course the start of Term 2 in our school year. We have lots of exciting things planned over the next while, so stay tuned to our page on the website to see just what we will be getting up to! :)
