Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Fifth Class

Miss Curry

Our Second Class buddies came to visit us and we exchanged holiday cards. Plenty of chatting took place about different Winter and Christmas traditions we have in our own homes. We had our final drumming lesson and said goodbye to our super teacher, Cathy. A special visit from the Shona Project leaders was welcomed

 We listened to some very interesting speakers and got goodie bags filled with treats along with some tips on how to mind our mental health.

To finish off the term we had a morning breakfast club with tea, toast, orange and apple juice. All were prepared and served by our wonderful classmates. What great teamwork to end 2022!
A visit to Garter Lane was a great trip and lots of fun. We designed fairytale castles for an upcoming Winterval exhibition and used many different materials.
In History, we have been learning all about the Egyptians and discovered many really cool facts. Pyramids were recreated in groups using cubes and layering them. What a super team effort.
Our Halloween class art was also a great process of creative thinking where we had free reign if materials to design our own masterpiece. Look how much effort was put into each and every one of them!
A class party on the day of our holidays began with playing a team fill the bucket game. This was followed by mummy wrap mania using toilet roll and a timer. After that, we made oreo mummies and watched Hocus Pocus while enjoying some treats.
Well done to our friends Lily and Nicole who participated in the Summer Stars Reading Programme and got a medal.
We have spent our first month getting to know Ms. Curry. by playing a true or false statement game, working out important dates linked to our teacher, chatting and having lots of fun!
Last week was friendship week. This was celebrated by designing the perfect friend recipe and then creating friendship soup to give to a classmate. A pinch of kindness, a spoonful if hugs and a jug of honesty were just some of the ingredients we came up with and added.
We have also been using our cycling skills in our weekly lessons and are really looking forward to continuing this into October.
