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.
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’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.
