Scoil Thomáis brings 'Santasaurus' to life!

 

One of our favourite Christmas books for readers of all ages is 'Santasaurus' by Niamh Sharkey. The story has been beautifully narrated by one of Ms.Galligan's wonderful 5th class pupils for you to enjoy - simply scan the QR code below or click here to listen!

Over the past number of weeks Ms.Steen, Collette, Tony, Mr.Kelly, and Ms.Whelan, along with a host of their talented pupils, have been busy transforming the hallway outside their rooms to reflect the colourful illustrations in the story - take a look at the captivating scenes that they have created in the video below!

'Bacteria on your Hands' Project - Room 22

 

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!

Lava Lamps in Room 8

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!

A Recount of Science Week in Room 19!

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!
