Maths Week fun in 5th class!

5th class have started Maths Week by solving maths riddles.

Give them a try: (Answers at the bottom of the page).

  1. I add 5 to 9 and get 2. The answer is correct, but how? (Dylan Byrne solved this one.)
  2. If there are 5 blocks and you take away 2, how many do you have? (This one tricked us all).
  3. I am an odd number. Take away one letter and I am even. What am I? (All groups solved it.)

We also solved some picture puzzless. Can you solve this one? (Answer at the bottom)

We began creating our own picture puzzles for our classmates to solve.


  1. 9am + 5hrs = 2pm

2. You took 2 blocks so you have 2!

3. Seven minus the ‘s’ is even.

Picture puzzle answer = 16

Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Team Hope’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an annual campaign that delivers gifts straight into the hands of children affected by poverty. Often these shoebox gifts are the only gift that a child will receive at Christmas and the joy that they bring is incredible. Since 2010, with your help, we have delivered over 2.1 million Shoebox gifts to Vulnerable Children across the world.

We are taking part again this year, for all families who wish to donate a shoebox to this appeal. The leaflets will be sent out some time this week, or you can view a copy of the leaflet below, which can be downloaded from We would like shoeboxes to be returned to the school by Friday 5th November please, so they can be collected by/delivered to Team Hope, in a timely fashion.
