Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Third Class

Mrs O’Dwyer

We are so happy to be back in school after many weeks at home. We were working so hard when we were at home that now we even get to make slime in class! We have also been learning all about St. Patrick and enjoyed the Green Day parade and céilí in the yard.
Christmas is coming and we are so excited. We have exploring the Christmas garden, doing plenty of art and we really enjoyed our hot chocolate in the hall. We hope everyone has a lovely, safe Christmas.
We were so excited for Waterford to be in the All Ireland hurling final and were delighted our school was picked to make these “Fans in the Stands” We had great fun making these portraits in our pods and kept an eye out for them while watching the match.
To celebrate Science Week we’ve been learning about solids, liquids and gases and enjoyed doing some experiments. We enjoyed taking part in the STEPS Young Engineers project. Here we designed and constructed inventions that would help our community and then had a Zoom meeting with a real engineer called Amy. She taught us all about engineering and we showed her our projects. It was great fun working in our groups and gave us a taste of what engineering is like.
To celebrate Maths Week, we went on a maths trail around the grounds, did some Halloween polygon art and took out the tangrams. We are also having great fun skipping in the yard. We’re completing the “Climb the Heights” challenge and skipping the height of mountains such as Carrauntoohill, Mt. Olympus, Aukstoas Hill, Mt Rysy and more. We are looking forward to Halloween.
Welcome back to all the girls in Mrs O’Dwyer’s 3rd Class, especially to our two new girls, Kimi and Lucie. We have been so busy this month, settling back into school and working hard. We have good fun during art lessons and we hope you enjoy our photos.
