Maths Week

This week (18-22 October) at Scoil Mhuire we are celebrating Maths Week 2021.  Our pupils will be taking part in Maths Trails appropriate for their class levels.


We are also running two competitions school-wide:

  1. Can you help your children to take photos showing they have "Maths Eyes"?  (You can do an online search for examples!)  Please send your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  2. We will also have Maths Puzzles for different class levels.  Pupils can post their entries into collection boxes at designated areas for their classes.

Ms Pigott has also put together some Information for Parents to promote Maths at home.  Please see the following:


Some useful maths websites:

For tables practise:


For general maths topics:  

This website’s purpose is to provide fun activities that parents can do with their children to develop their literacy and numeracy. It includes general information, fun activities and useful tips.

IXL focuses on encouraging children to have fun while learning maths. The website is directly aligned to the Irish primary, Junior Cert and Leaving Cert curriculums, offering endless practice problems and exercises. The site caters for students at all levels, ranging from junior infants up to fifth year.  (subscription required)

Over 100,000 students in Europe are now using Mathletics, with more joining every day. Mathletics can be used by schools or by students studying on their own. Students of all ages are catered for, with a ‘Mathletics Hall of Fame’ displayed on the site, encouraging students into healthy competition with one another. With parent reporting enabling parents to monitor their child’s progress and a wide range of tools and resources available, mathletics is a new and engaging way for kids to improve on those all important maths skills

This is an Irish website, developed by the National Council for Technology in Education. It is a portal site and enables users to search for resources according to class, subject and/or strand unit.
