Numeracy Walk around Bandon

As part of our Numeracy and Literacy Initiative for this year we went on a walk around Bandon to see how numbers are incorporated into our everyday lives. The walk was a great success and we found that everywhere there are numbers, for example:

  • Speed limits
  • Lottery numbers
  • Rod signs and numbers
  • Electricity poles
  • House and street numbers
  • Opening and closing times
  • Phone numbers
  • Prices, sale prices and percentage reductions
  • Monument dates
  • Establishment dates
  • River height lines
  • Menu prices
  • Post box times
  • Parking ticket machine
  • Siler and gold measured in carat
  • Burials and deaths on grave stones
  • Water manholes
  • Tax, insurance and NCT on vehicles

After the pupils had their lunch at the skateboard park, they played basketball and went on the outdoor exercise equipment.
