Mata sa Rang
Welcome to Mata as Rang.
Senior infants have spent the last few weeks enjoying maths in the classroom. Mata as Rang offers a unique approach to extending children’s number knowledge, understanding and strategies. The programme offers an extremely detailed profiles-based assessment of pupils in respect of these areas and provides a framework for individual, group or class-based instruction which is suitable not only for pupils who are experiencing difficulties but also for average and more able children. Senior Infants and Mrs o Toole would like to thank all the teachers who came and made maths so much fun over the past 6weeks.
