Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Sixth Class

Mrs McAra

We’re back to school and are wasting no time, it’s straight back to work in Mrs McAra’s 6th Class.


Wishing the very best of luck to Ella who is competing in the World Irish Dance Championships in Killarney this week from all of us here in the Presentation. We are all cheering you on. Enjoy every minute of the experience!


We’ve had all hands on deck exploring measurement and data in Maths. We recorded our heights and used this information to create and solve word problems in the classroom.

We put our artistic, geographical mapping and mathematical skills hard to the test last week, creating a Halloween scavenger hunt for the whole school to enjoy. We hope you have a spooktacular time!

We all got into the spirit for our fancy dress Friday for Halloween, we hope you like our costumes.

Massive congratulations to Leah, Elodie and Lily, who completed the Walk for Life in aid of the Solas Centre. We are very proud of them!

We had a fabulous time in Garter Lane Gallery where we worked with a local artist. We explored Van Gough’s ‘Starry Night’ and made our own textured version. We are so lucky to have such talented artists to work with from our local community.

It’s Maths Week 2021. We’ve been enjoying lots fun Maths challenges. We made a shopping list for a child’s birthday on a budget while making sure to buy items that fit their interests. Great fun for all.

September …

We’re taking full advantage of our computer room slot and have begun paired research projects this week. We’re looking forward to a busy year with lots of work and fun in equal measure.

We’re all extremely proud and inspired by our very own Katie. She was captain of the under 12’s Portlaw soccer team who won their under 12’s tournament.

Congratulations too to Candice and Sophie who are our Under 12 County Camogie Champions! Well done girls. We are so proud of you.

We’re very proud of all our hard work, researching and displaying our 911 projects. This was our very 1st project this year and has set the standard high for future projects this year.
We read a wonderful text about dreamcatchers, it included the instructions on how to make them. We decided to take on the challenge of making our very own dreamcatchers. As you can see, the finished results are absolutely beautiful.
You’re never too old for messy play!! We opened our very own slime factory in 6th class last Friday. It was a huge success and got us into the Halloween spirit for the 1st day of October!

We’ve been practicing our public speaking and presenting skills this week using the information we researched for our 911 projects. We’ve become much more self assured and confident in our ability to speak infront of an audience.

Take a look at our explosive sounds.  These colourful comic book style pieces of art were inspired by and based on the 1960’s episodes of ‘Batman and Robin’. We hope you like them.
