Our courtyard classroom
We are very fortunate in our school to have a wonderful courtyard in the centre of our school building. As a staff we have decided to repurpose this beautiful space into a outdoor classroom. This outdoor space will be used and developed over the course of our school year but we wanted to share some pictures of our Junior Infant class embracing the space this week. The Junior Infants completed their Aistear work based on the theme of Autumn, They made some Autumn soup, They build a home for hibernating animals like Hattie the Hedgehog in their story of the week. They also practiced making their sounds and animals/face etc using objects they found in the space.
Our First School Assembly
Everyone is Scoil Teampall Toinne gathered together on Monday to participate in our first school assembly. This year we have decided to hold a school assembly each month. All of the students enjoyed listening to songs, poems, news and much more during this short event.
We listened to some fantastic news about our school. Our school has been awarded with another STEM award for last year's brilliant work in Science, technology, Engineering and Maths.
Mr. Molan reminded all of the classes of our school Motto: Kind feet, kind hands, kind words, kind actions. He announced the winners of the motto Art competition

Today was a very exciting day in our school as the construction crew began digging out and clearing the way for our new Astroturf pitch. We are all very excited to see the progress over the next few weeks.
Junior Infants have had a very busy week this week. They practice using their froggy finger pencil grip whilst using chalk on the playground. They went for an Autumn walk around the school, they created leaf creatures and they celebrated Leon and Finn's September birthdays by having cake as a treat today.
Settling in in September
The children in 3rd and 4th class are delighted to be back again. They are loving the healthy lunch options that are being provided to them each day. They have been revising time in maths and learned Beidh Aonach Amarach ás Gaeilge. Have a look at our video of Beidh Aonach Amarach, what a talented bunch.
We've included a few pictures of first and second class enjoying their school lunches this week also.
The children of 1st & 2nd class have been very busy since returning to school. They enjoyed working outside in the beautiful sunshine. The children worked in groups to discuss what a good classroom looks like and what rules we should have in our room. They also came up with fun activities for Golden Time on Fridays.
The children have really enjoyed their new school lunches this week.
Well done to everyone who has remembered their hurling gear these past two week also. From the Junior Infants to 6th class everyone in our school has greatly enjoyed starting back learning their hurling skills and playing many fun games also. Take a look at our fantastic Junior Infants practicing their hurling skills on the school yard.
As we embark upon a our first month of this school year, our junior infants are settling in brilliantly into primary school. They have been busy getting to know their classmates, playing with a variety of toys and learning some new skills. Take a look at some of the fabulous photos of our new Junior Infants.
