Pupils use measuring skills to check size of local pitch.
Third/fourth class have been studying area and perimeter this week in maths and went outside to draw squared metres.
A further study was conducted to determine the area of the pitch which is next door to the school. Beforehand, a few pupils had stated that they had always been told that the pitch was the same size as the one in Croke Park. This seemed like the perfect time to investigate! It turns out, the pitch in Herbertstown is indeed the same size as the hallowed sod in Croke Park! (if not fractionally bigger!)
