Hola from Room 9!

 

We have been very busy learning about Mexico in Room 9! The children learned all about the Mexican artist Frieda Kahlo and created their own sombreros, inspired by the bright colours she used! We also had so much fun with Conor for GAA. We practised our skills as well as learning new ones! We have also been busy learning our sight words. Bingo is the game of choice! We also had fun in the snow..

Hoppy Leap Year from everyone in Room 6!

Cycling Skills in 5th Class

The children in 5th Class enjoyed their first outdoor cycling lesson with Mick and Shane from the Irish Centre for Cycling this week. After a classroom based safety lesson last week, the pupils moved on to practicing cycling skills on the school yard. The pupils are looking forward to learning more cycling skills over the next few weeks before getting out onto the open road!

All about China in Room 12

Over the past 2 weeks, the children in Ms. Golden’s class have been learning all about China. The children researched about Chinese food, culture, education, history and much more. They created mini- projects and did a fantastic job at presenting them to the class. We also celebrated Chinese New Year by creating lanterns and learning all about the Zodiac story! To celebrate all our hard work, one of the students in our class made delicious spring rolls for everyone to enjoy!

Room 18 have had a busy term. We have been learning about Global Warming and how we can try and make better decisions to help our planet. We also interviewed people in our families about their school days. Some children even did audio and video recordings. We learned so much about school life in the past. We also invited the Junior Infants from Room 6 to our class for a paired art activity. They loved coming up to 4th class!

Chess Tournament 2024

The Scoil Thomáis Chess Tournament has begun! Many thanks to the Chess Keepers from Mr Finegan's class for organising it. The tournament is open to students from 4th to 6th classes. The tournament will be run two lunchtimes a week so it will probably take a couple of months to complete! We are beginning with 4th classes.

Beir Bua to all!

January in Room 27

We have been busy painting in R.27. Look at our beautiful Valetine’s paintings! Aren’t they just LOVE-ly! We also really enjoyed drawing our cuddly monkeys!

We all interviewed our grandparents for Catholic School Week. We loved learning all about their favourite sports, tv shows and hobbies. We shared funny memories and chatted about what we like most about our grandparents with our class. We made special booklets to give to our grandparents.

We are having a very active January. We are very lucky to have a gymnastics and GAA coach each week. We are learning lots of new skills and having lots of fun!

One School One Book

We are excited to announce that this year's One School One Book is Lubna and Pebble by Wendy Meddour. Students from Ms O'Mahony's sixth class did an amazing job of surveying the whole school. We are thrilled with the result and we look forward to diving into this incredible book in the coming months.

School Closed for Midterm

Scoil Thomáis will be closed from on Thursday 15th & Friday 16th February for Mid-Term Break. 

We hope everyone enjoys their midterm break and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday 19th of February 2024 at 9am!

Room 23 Projects

For the past few weeks, 4th class have been learning all about Italy. We had to create a project about Italy. We could choose to make a poster, booklet or a google slides presentation. We learned all about the geography of Italy, cuisine, fashion, tourist attractions and even how to speak some Italian! We also celebrated the end of the topic with ‘Italian Day’ where we dressed up in colours of the Italian flag and enjoyed some delicious Italian food!

Room 13 have been busy!

Room 13 have been really busy in the computer room developing their research skills.
We found lots of interesting facts about China using Kiddle.co.
We celebrated Internet Safety day and Chinese New Year recently as well as Pancake Tuesday and Valentine's Day! 

January in Room 7

Room 7 were very busy in January learning all about The Supermarket through play. We had great fun shopping in the roleplay area and we enjoyed building supermarkets using Lego. We learned how to play ‘The Shopping List’ game and painted fruit bowls at our art station. We had a fruit tasting day, everyone tried all of the fruits and recorded which ones they liked. We did lots of work practising making and writing our names. We liked building some of the new jigsaw puzzles. We have started learning our letter sounds and how to blend them together to read words. We are doing great work learning our sight words and we love finding them in our picture books during story time.

Italian Day in Room 18

Ms. Foley's 4th class recently completed projects on Italy. We presented our projects to the class and we were invited to bring in some Italian food to taste. Some children cooked delicious food and desserts to share with the class. We had some pizza and pasta… even some homemade tiramisu. We were so excited trying out lots of different meats and cheeses too. We dressed up in Italian colours. We had such a great day.
