Room 8 had so much fun making lava lamps during Science Week. They created their lamps using very simple ingredients -oil, water, food colouring and fizzy tablets! Well done, boys and girls!
The main theme throughout the week was Climate Change and how we can make a real difference with our everyday actions! We carried out walking debates, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of plastic. We even discovered that you can pierce a sandwich bag full of water with a pencil, without spilling a drop! Keeping in line with COP26, we learned about fossil fuels and greenhouse gases, creating our own greenhouse gas models using gummy bears. As well as this we discovered that water is denser than oil and therefore oil always sits on top of water. This was a crucial element of our lava lamp experiment.
Finally we topped off the week by coming 3rd place in RTÉ’s Science Week Quiz: Pick your brain quiz!
Room 23 had an amazing time exploring the great outdoors - they participated in games, bug-hunting, foraging and even made wooden pendants, hammocks and rope swings! Thank you to Ciara Hinksman from 'Heritage in Schools' for a wonderful day!
Congratulations to the winners of our Scoil Thomáis Maths Week poster competition! There was great excitement on Friday as the boys and girls were presented with their prizes by our principal, Ms.Diffley, and Maths Week coordinator Ms.Travers!
Our pupils welcomed the mid-term break in style by dressing up, visiting the spooky courtyard and going on the school walk! Mr.O'Doherty's 2nd Class captured the day very nicely in the video below!
