My Ireland with Colin in Scoil Thomáis

Colins Ireland

Last September, we welcomed former pupil and Australian celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge to our school. Colin is a judge on the Australian show, My Kitchen Rules and while in Ireland, he visited some of his favourite places including his primary school, Scoil Thomáis. While here he met with some staff and pupils, made smoothies and learned a little bit of Irish dancing too. You can see some clips of the school in the first few minutes of the YouTube video below.

Ancient Greece

Room 21
Ancient Greece Project

Room 21 were given an Ancient Greece Project to complete. We were all given a booklet to fill in about the Gods, the Goddesses, the War of Marathon and the Olympic Games. We also had to make up and write our very own Aesop Fable.

We all made amazing models of The Parthenon using shoe boxes, cereal boxes and other materials such as wood, paper, paint and paper mache.
We all had a great time doing this project.

Writing Workshop with Alan Gibbons.

Recently Room 21 was visited by Alan Gibbons, a very famous and award winning English writer. 
The pupils wrote their own superhero stories entitled ‘Metamorphosis’. These stories were inspired from Alan Gibbons.
He encouraged us to keep on writing and he gave us some fantastic writing tips.
We were very honoured to have such a great author in our school.

1st Class go on a Minibeast Hunt

We went on a minibeast hunt today (Friday, 1st May). We found many minibeasts during our hunt. We went looking for insects and creepy-crawlies on the grass beside the school yard and in the school garden. The most common minibeasts we found were ants, woodlice, beetles and spiders. We also found worms, a snail, a bumblebee, a caterpillar, a ladybird, a bloodsucker and a crane fly. We did not see any butterflies on our hunt. We used magnifying glasses to look at the creatures and we collected some of them in pooters. When we were finished looking at them, we let them go again. When we got back to our classroom we counted all of our tally marks and wrote about our minibeast hunt.

Written by the boys and girls in Room 11.
