Good morning everyone. Hope all is well. We are settling into the school year and are slowly getting the ball rolling.
Today is a special day, as we are celebrating the Chinese and Vietnamese New Year. As you know, we are having a shared lunch, and we thank you for all your donations of food. It is lovely to see so many children in national costume, and others in red. Today we have an extra surprise at Assembly. Let’s go and have a look!
Everyone was so so EXCITED!
After assembly we had an assembly reflection and wrote in our journals about what we liked and what we saw in assembly.
After recess we did some wonderful exploring and investigating. We were really tuned in.
Then we had our shared lunch which was delicious. Thankyou to everyone who brang food to share.
After lunch we had a visual meditation which activated our brain waves.
The children were fascinated by the images.
Then to Religion.
During religion we watched a video about Zaccheus. This is what the children learnt.
James: Zaccheus took money from the poor man.
Manseerat: Jesus always accepts people.
Ann Marie: Jesus shows kindness, happiness and love to people.
Lola: If you are bad and mean to people, you are known as a sinner.
Samuel: Zaccheus took money from the poor man who wanted to get food for his family.
Aurora: You shouldn’t take money away from poor people.
