Siúlóid Oíche Shamhna!

Our pupils had a wonderful time taking part in our 'Siúlóid Oíche Shamhna' today. The boys and girls took to the pavements in the beautiful autumn sunshine and thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of the spooky decorations on the route!

 

October Mid-Term

Scoil Thomáis will be closed from from Monday 26th of October until Friday 30th of October for Mid-Term Break.

With almost eight full weeks of school completed, we all agree that being ‘in school’ is where we want to be and the continued safety of pupils and staff is the priority for everyone.

Special appreciation must go to all Scoil Thomáis staff for working under the current restrictions and for their commitment to the pupils, their care and their wellbeing.

Special thanks to our incredible cleaners, Pauline and Regina, who are doing fantastic work keeping the school clean and safe for staff and pupils.  

We hope everyone has a really lovely, well-deserved Halloween break and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday 2nd of November 2020 at 9am! 

Please keep safe over Halloween and have fun!

Hallowe'en Safety 2020

Normally at this time of year, we get a visit from our community Garda Alexander McDermott to teach and remind our pupils all about Hallowe'en safety. Unfortunately, a visit simply isn't possible this year. Instead, Garda McDermott has kindly shared some Hallowe'en safety resources with us which we would like to share with you.

Room 3 had great fun creating witches’ potions during Aistear!

Here are some photos of their own wonderful creations.

Siúlóid Oíche Shamhna Posters

We are all really looking forward to our Siúlóid Oíche Shamhna which next Friday...weather permitting of course!

We asked our super talented 6th Classes to design a poster for the walk and we have been absolutely blown away by the work they have done.

We'll reveal our competition winners next week but in the meantime, please enjoy the posters compiled in a video below.

 

Room 21 have been busy!

 

Great fun was had creating and performing short travel advertisements for city breaks, cruises and beach holidays in the not too distant future.

 

As part of Maths Week 2020, Room 21 decided to wear mathematical additions to their uniforms on Thursday. We didn’t calculate on having such a creative use of the curriculum strands.

 

To distract from the current Covid-19 and Halloween use of masks, Room 21 decided to be a bit more creative in interpretation and design. We hope you like them.

Room 24 Autumn Art

This week we, Room 24 took advantage of the beautiful sunshine flooding our classroom by creating autumn leaf sun catchers. This activity required fine motor skills and well developed cutting skills. We used tissue paper to create a mosaic to catch the sunlight. It is hoped that the leaves resemble stained glass art that you can see in churches. This activity was challenging yet very enjoyable.
