The sixth class maths group were going to have a brilliant day. They were heading to DCU in Dublin for a magic maths show.
10:30am = The maths class meet up in the yard.
10:35 am = The maths class leave on a bus to DCU.
11:15am = The maths class arrive at DCU
Now that the maths class has arrived at DCU , its time for show!
The show is under way and it is BRILLIANT! Andrew (the magician/mathematician) is teaching us loads of fantastic maths tips and tricks. The magic tricks are superb and are leaving everyone amazed!
Andrew pulls a piece of paper and a lighter out of his pocket. He sets the paper alight and when the fire disappears he is left with a €10 note in his hand! He presents St. Corban's own Eoin Keogh with the tenner!
Unfortunately for Eoin, the magician asked for the €10 back but gave Eoin a signed copy of his new book instead! He then folded the €10 note which transformed into a fake $1,000,000 note! He then gave the note to Mr. Lane who looks after the sixth class maths group in St. Corban's.
But like everything, unfortunately, the show had to end. So the students all ate their packed lunches in DCU's cafeteria.
The bus then drove us back to St. Corban's and the day was over. Everyone had a fantastic day.
Some more thoughts from the day...
