At the start of the day we did sport and we did our last tennis lesson. Next time we are going to do something else.

Next we went to the library and borrowed books.

After recess we did our spelling words. We wrote five words in our literacy book.

After that we did our report reflections.

Later we did Pentecost and we watched a video in it. We didn’t see Jesus but there were some of his disciples in a little house and Jesus gave them his power. In the video again there was a man that begged and he could not work for money and a man said sorry I do not have any money but I can do this and he could work, dance, run and jump, anything.

2PN & JW students present to the school board

This morning some of our students were invited to speak with the school board about some of the learning that has taken place in our class. Our students decided to elaborate on the coding, using the app SCRATCH, that they had done recently. Our students highlighted that student agency at HFCS is allowing students “voice and choice with their learning”. Well done to all students who were involved!

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

This morning we had library where we watched an online book called Macca the Alpaca. On Wednesday we will take part in the National Simultaneous Storytime where we will watch the story called Alpacas with Maracas.

After Library we went to PE where we continued learning about tennis.

For spelling we picked 5-10 words that we wanted to learn about.

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.
