There has been great excitement in Scoil Thomáis as classes from infants to sixth class anticipate the arrival of our mobile Christmas Library! Thank you so much to Ms.Steen and her team of librarians for making DEAR time even more magical!
We love this new addition to our school library - a poem, written by some of our super talented pupils!
Three of our 6th Class pupils set out to prove the importance of regular handwashing in their recent science project! They investigated the difference in bacteria present on unwashed hands, hands that have just been washed with water, and hands that have been washed properly using soap and water. They did this by collecting fingerprints from a number of peers, teachers, and SNAs using agar and petri dishes. Their project outlines their findings as well as their plans to emphasize the importance of handwashing throughout the school with pom-pom germs! The pupils and their peers have been busy making the 'germs' from wool to distribute to classrooms as a visual reminder of the importance of handwashing. We hope you enjoy this outstanding project as much as we did!
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!
