Today Mr White came around to judge our lanterns ready for the celebrations of Friday.
The Moon Lantern Festival or mid-Autumn Festival is a popular harvest festival celebrating when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.
At Holy Family we will be celebrating the Moon Lantern Festival on
Friday 21 September
Students are invited to wear traditional or cultural clothing.
The 4RG, 2IB and 2TD assembly will take place after recess at 10:45am and it will highlights cultural aspects of Moon Lantern Festival. Activities will include a lion dance, singing and sharing cultural information. The winner of the lantern making competition will also be announced at the assembly.
After assembly students and families are invited back to their classrooms for a shared lunch. Students are encouraged to bring a plate of food that represents their culture. We also encourage healthy lunch time food (items maybe include sushi, spring rolls, rice, fruit, veggies, sandwiches).
Below are some fun you tube clips which sparked our discussion about adding ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ to words. The discussion follows on from our conversations about tense. For example I am walking to school. (Present) Or Yesterday I walked to school. (Past).
Jasmin and I are using intentional teaching time to explore areas we have observed in the children’s writing which requires group focus time. We have notice children have been using words for example ‘shopping’ in their writing. The children have also been experimenting with adding different ending and changing words to express the correct tense in their stories or recounts.
When we are writing if we come to a word that has one syllable word that ends with one consonant and has one vowel – when you want to add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant. For example wash, stop, rub, walk, hop are words that have one syllable, so when you add ‘ed’ or ‘ing’ you need to double the consonant.
