# John 13: 31-35 The New Commandment

### John 13: 31-35 The New Commandment

31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. 32 If God has been glorified in him,[j] God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. 33 Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’ 34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

On Monday we read this scripture to the children three times (just as the staff at HFCS do), and asked for their responses and comments. This is what they came up with:

Ajoh – The bible is about loving others

Ishaan – By showing love to other people

Kayden – Show kindness. Show love to your parents by helping them around the house.

Hunter – Show love

Anna – By being kind nice

Meklet – Caring for others

Shirley – By doing what they (parents) tell you to do

Saj – By following instructions

Gurnoor – Taking people to special places.

In literacy this week we are focusing on Synonyms. We listened to a song which helped explain what synonyms are. Synonyms are two or more words having the same or nearly the same meaning.

In numeracy we did a money workshop where we had to place the right amount of money (notes and coins) to the price tag of an object.

# Coding – SCRATCH

Last week the children were given the opportunity to explore the application SCRATCH 2. This app allows students to code and create their own animations through a step by step model. Students were given the choice to what type of animation they would make, these included: pong games, catch games, fashion dress ups and stories.
