Today we had another busy day preparing for our class Mass tomorrow and continuing with our shared book focus for Literacy. We shared the book ‘Blossom Possum’ today and then had lots of fun writing our own rhyming books, mapping the animals’ journey and creating our own characters to join the story. We have been trialling a new way of running our Literacy activities with no set groups. The students choose the activities they are most interested in and move to a new activity when they feel they have finished. It is interesting to see what they choose to do and what they are able to achieve when they have more choice in their learning.
After recess we had a quick run through of our Mass for tomorrow, checking speaking parts and special jobs.
We then did a GoNoodle dance to get our bodies moving!
Our Numeracy activity today was based around Christmas. Each child drew a Christmas stocking with some presents they would like in it and recorded how much they thought each item might cost. They then had a go at adding up the total cost of their wish list. Some children extended themselves and added a combination of dollars and cents!
We finished the day with Music and Library borrowing.
We are very excited for our Class Mass tomorrow and hope to see lots of parents and family there!
