A visit from Niall de Búrca!

Storyteller Niall DeBúrca was back in Scoil Thomáis on Thursday, 23rd March 2023. His entertaining and engaging storytelling is always a big hit with the children, who thoroughly enjoyed listening to his stories. During the course of the day, the pupils in the school made their way to the school hall at various times with their class groups to listen to a variety of fun stories. A big thank you to Niall for entertaining us all and to the boys and girls in our school, who were on their best behaviour.

Junk Kouture Room 19

Junk Kouture is an international competition that was won by two Irish teenagers this year. This competition is described as recognising ‘that sustainability is the new creativity, inspiring new ideas and innovation.’ This inspired Room 19 to get creative and sustainable to make their own Junk Kouture materpieces for art. We reused and recycled a range of materials to design and create a costume of our choice. Take a look at our amazing work!  

Flowers in Room 10!

Second Class in Room 10 were busy last week creating their own unique bouquets of flowers for Mother’s Day to show how much they love, care and acknowledge the work that their own Mother’s do for them.

With their bouquet and bow wrapping skills, we may have a few florists on our hands!

Titanic Work in Room 22!

As part of their learning on the Titanic, pupils in Room 22 read like historians to inform the design of what would have been typical cabins for 1st, 2nd and 3rd class passengers aboard the ship. The boys and girls also designed sketchbook biographies of the passengers they encountered during their research.

The Titanic theme wove its way into their poetry writing too, with the creation of ‘haiku in a bottle’ thematic poems to round out the theme!

Room 16 Germinations

5th Class Céilí

5th Class had a great time at their céilí on Thursday 16th of March. They really enjoyed performing the dance they has learned for Seachtain na Gaeilge - 'Baint an Fhéir' or the Haymakers Jig. The classes sung songs and were treated to a special performance by two fantastic 5th Class pupils on the tin whistle and accordion. Maith sibh go léir!

Room 25 Paper Chain Challenge

The children in Ms. Galligan’s class had fun challenging themselves with the ‘Great Paper Chain Challenge’ for Engineer’s Week last week. They showed excellent thinking skills and teamwork.  Each group was given an A4 sheet of paper. They had one minute to discuss their strategy with their group, and five minutes to make their paper chains. After five minutes, we lined up the paper chains to see which group made the longest one. We then discussed what strategy the winning group used.
