Room 25 – Trócaire Game Changer Winners.

On Wednesday 15th May, 6 girls travelled to The Helix in DCU, to the National Final of the Trócaire Game Changers Competition. There were over 80 entries in the primary category from all over Ireland and two groups from Ms. De Barra’s 5th Class made it to the top 10 finalists!!! The girls had to show-case their games to the judges and other finalists on the day. Congratulations to both groups: the ‘Global Warning’ group and the ‘Planet Anti-Pollution’ group. It was a fantastic achievement to represent Scoil Thomáis at the final!

Science fun in Room 4!

Recently, the pupils in Room 4 had a visit from scientists Matthew and Sarah. The pupils learned all about DNA and looked at their own DNA and the DNA of a monkey using a microscope! Each student then made a model of DNA using sweets! Yum! 

To finish the workshop, the children also saw a dry ice reaction! A big thank you to Matthew and Sarah for the excellent workshop!

Room 27 - Bee Workshop

2nd class were busy little bees recently when Mark Nolan from Biodiversity Ireland visited. The children enjoyed a fantastic 'Pollinator Project' workshop learning about pollinators in Ireland, bee hives and how to help keep our pollinators protected. Children found lots of bees in our school environment and we are going to make a great effort to continue to help bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies. One of our classmates even became our beekeeper!

Writing Project in Room 24

Today, our class went to visit  Ms. Scally’s Junior Infant class and we read stories that we wrote for them. We spent several weeks writing these stories. When we had finished our final drafts, we illustrated and decorated our books and they all turned out really well. The Junior Infants really enjoyed listening to our stories and we enjoyed the experience!

We are busy planning for Stage Three of our Sensory Garden project at the moment. We decided to consult with some of our lovely pupils who will use the garden. We asked them to share their ideas of what they would like to see in the space when it's finished. We hope to incorporate their ideas in the final plan which we will share with you soon!
