Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

Third Class

Miss Duke

Time is flying by in Third Class. We’ve had so many exciting things happen so far and Ms. Duke tells us there is much more to come… we can’t wait, this year will be so exciting!

September was a pretty busy month, we welcomed our new friends Amberly and Zuzanna into our class and we got to meet our new teacher, Ms Duke. We played lots of games and worked on our communication skills. We worked together on our class rules and decided on a class motto. Our motto is ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’.

October was a very enjoyable month, we had our Irish Dancing lessons with Muriel, we celebrated World Animal Week, Maths Week and many other events. We designed some beautiful art pieces like our African Sunset, The Wicked Witch and our Eye full of Colour. We love art in Rm.12, especially when it involves glitter!

November has come and gone in the blink of an eye! We’re really enjoying rehearsing our Peace Proms songs, we attended our workshop in the WIT Arena with our conductor Greg and we boogied for two hours straight! We were delighted when Greg picked us out of the 1000 children there and complimented us on our dance moves.

For Presentation Day we attended mass in St. Paul’s Church with the Secondary School. We were really proud of Lily May, Charli and Molly who took part in the liturgical dance. We’re really busy working on our Young Engineer Ireland projects, we’re working in groups to identify a problem in our community and design a solution. We’re so excited to have two real life engineers visit us too. We’ve been attending gymnastics and are having a blast. We’re being really brave and trying some new things such as back walkovers and cartwheels. We love seeing how much we improve every week!

Our attendance has been fantastic this month! We have made an excellent effort to be in school every day.
