Wednesday 14th February 2018 – Week 3 Term 1

Morning all!

Lucas: Today is Wednesday but it is also Valentines Day, Ash Wednesday and my cousins birthday!

This morning we trialled our new emotion welcome. We have assigned a certain colour pebble to different emotions. This morning we placed that colour pebble on our name to represent how we were feeling. This gives both teachers and students a chance to check-in with one another.

PE Reflection

Jed: We had 2IB Olympics. The yellow team won!

Joseph: We did an egg race!

Libby: We did a relay!

Magot: We played running

Samurai: We played an egg race!

Together we read The Very Hungry CaterpillarThis story extends on our classroom learning surrounding the days of the week and simple counting on. We then reflected on the story.

After recess we met as a whole school to celebrate Mass for Ash Wednesday.  

Sampann – The mass was telling us about fasting, praying and sharing.
Nevada – All the teachers got ashes for Ash Wednesday.
Daniel – We sang some special Ash Wednesday songs.

After lunch 2IB requested some extra meditation time because they were feeling a little escalated from lunch time. We participated in a Smiling Mind guided meditation before listening to some calming music and given the opportunity to mindfully colour/draw. We then practiced our Maths Prodigy online.

When 2DT returned from Spanish we reflected upon Ash Wednesday as a whole group.  

TCross – We get the ashes
Cierra – It is about saying sorry
Nhu – It is a time to pray
Dion – Fast
Daksh – Sharing
Alex – You are sorry for what you have done

What is Lent?

Rehat – Jesus went into the desert for 40 days
Joseph – It is waiting for Easter

We also thought about what we could do during Lent.

Each of us received the ashes from our teachers.
