Maths Week in Scoil Thomáis
Pupils in all classes will be involved in various extra Maths activities during the next two weeks to promote awareness and appreciation of mathematics in our world. These included Estimation and Puzzle Design competitions, Maths Trails, daily Problem Solving/Puzzle Time, IZAK 9, and the online maths website Mangahigh. There are lots of maths posters and maths puzzles dotted around the school for pupils to challenge their numeracy skills. Best of luck to all the pupils who will take part in the ‘Estimation’ and Puzzle Design Competitions. Results will be announced after Halloween.
Thanks to teacher Ms Travers who organised Maths Week activities this year!
Japan Day in Room 23
On Friday 4th October we were transported to the East when the 4th class children in room 23 celebrated their own Japan Day. The children have been working hard on their Japan projects over the past few weeks. Some children presented their projects in class. Many of the children dressed up in Japanese clothing and designed their own t-shirts and outfits for the day. Katie and Ciaran made some delicious sushi for the class to taste.
Congratulations Grandad Malone!
Big congratulations to school Grandad, Martin Malone who was the first man to ever enter the National Brown Bread Competition. He made it to the semi-finals, competing at the National Ploughing Championships in September. We here in Scoil Thomáis are very proud of Grandad Malone, as we've been lucky enough to enjoy his delicious brown bread and other baked goodies at our school bake sales over the last few years! This lovely article featured in the Irish Examiner recently.
Maith Thú Grandad Malone!
