Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Fifth Class

Mrs McAra

In Mrs McAra’s 5th Class we have been really enjoying our 1st few weeks back to school. We had a gallery walk along the corridor which was based on a book we have been studying in our class called “The Day You Begin” by Jacqueline Woodsin. We also transformed our classroom for a book tasting morning where we got to browse a taster of some of the books from our school library. We each made a “Top Picks” list so that we can easily pick a book when we go for our weekly library slot.

We have had great fun with some team building and stem activities too. It has been a test of patients with the challenges we faced but it was fun team work.
This week we all became archaeologists, we learned how difficult a dig can be and just how delicate artifacts are. We each excavated a chocolate chip cookie using toothpicks as our tool. This was tricky work to try conserve the artifacts (chocolate chips).
We look forward to a fun filled 5th Class year, it’s defoff to a great start.
