Junior Infants Dancing! 1

The boys and girls in Junior Infants are really enjoying their dance lessons with Emma Rose! We’re having lots of fun practicing our moves in Room 10!


Story Cubes in Room 19

This week in Room 19 we used the Rory’s Story Cubes app on the iPads to help us in our narrative writing. We had great enjoyment in creating, discussing and sharing our stories with each other, and we were reminded of how imaginative and well abled we all are at our writing! 


Room 5 were very busy!

The boys and girls in Ms Furlong's class had a very busy week last week. They were working very hard playing all sorts of literacy based board games and iPad apps during Literacy Hour as  well as Maths games during Maths stations. They thoroughly enjoyed attending the Seachtain na Gaeilge céilí and ceolchoirm too! Well done boys and girls!


Third Class Dancing

 Third class had lots of fun dancing ‘The Walls of Limerick.’ Well done to all the boys and girls for getting involved and having some fun! 


Room 14 are very lucky

 To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, children in Ms Moran’s first class talked about reasons why they are lucky! We also attended a fantastic concert and did lots of Irish dancing. 


Cross Country Success


Well done to all the athletes who took part in the 3rd outing of this year’s Fingal Athletics League in Porterstown on Tuesday, 14th March. Once again, Scoil Thomais enjoyed some very impressive runs, with many of our runners coming in high places in their races. Particular mention goes to Junior and Cillian from the 3rd Class boys’ team, Daniel, Conor and Jayden in 4th Class, Aoife Byrne and both Conor Roche and Conor O’ Brien in 5th Class. This was the last trip to Porterstown for our 6th Class runners, and they did themselves proud – Adam Hennessy came in 3rd place, Ellen Mc Laughlin secured a 2nd place, and Conor Boyle raced to victory, leaving the completion lagging behind him! Well done to all and best of luck with the Finals Day in Morton Stadium, Santry on 4th April.

Seachtain na Gaeilge in Seomra 10

I seomra 10, bhíomar ag obair go dian ar na puipéidi stoca le haghaidh Seachtain na Gaeilge. Múinfaimid roinnt nathanna agus amhráin Gaeilge agus bainfaimid úsáid astu le linn ár ranganna Gaeilge!

In room 10 we have been busy making sock-puppets for Seachtain na Gaeilge! We’re going to teach them lots of Irish phrases and songs and use them during our Gaeilge lessons!


Dáil Visit - Room 18

sized Dáil Visit Room 18

6th class students from Mr Gurhy’s class recently visited the Dáil. Students were met by local TD Jack Chambers who give them an overview of the workings of Dáil Éireann.

Over the course of the morning students enjoyed a guided tour of Seanad Éireann and the Dáil Chamber. They were very impressed with the Seanad which has a magnificent painted ceiling and painted doors.

After the Dáil trip, 6th class went to the Natural History Museum or the “Dead Zoo” as it’s sometimes called. The children really enjoyed this self-guided tour and saw many fascinating sights, ranging from lions to a whale-shark. The children had lots of fun and it was a great experience for them.


Seachtain na Gaeilge


Is í Seachtain na Gaeilge an fhéile Ghaeilge agus chultúrtha is mó a bhíonn in Éirinn gach bliain. Tá sé mar aidhm ag Seachtain na Gaeilge úsáid na Gaeilge a spreagadh sa bhaile agus i gcéin i rith féile coicíse gach Márta. Is é mana na féile ná "Bain Triail Aisti - Surprise Yourself!" chun a léiriú gur féidir le gach duine, cibé aois atá sé nó sí nó cibé tír ina bhfuil cónaí uirthi nó air, a bheith lárnach in athbheochan na Gaeilge!

 Táimid ag ceiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge i Scoil Thomáis le linn na laethanta seo. Tá na páistí uilig ag obair go dian ag foghlaim damhsaí, amhráin agus dánta as Gaeilge. Tá gach duine ag déanamh sár-iarracht agus táimid go léir ag úsáid Gaeilge ar fud na scoile. Tá na páistí ag ullmhú ealaín le haghaidh comórtas ealaíne agus tá gach duine ag tnúth leis an gceoilchoirm mhór.Tá súil againn go mbéidh craic agus caint againn go léir le linn Seachtain na Gaeilge.
