Monday Musings

Welcome to Week 5!

Literacy

This week we celebrate Book Week. Each day there will be special book week activities in the centre for the children to participate in if they are interested.

We will also be focusing on shared reading during our Literacy sessions this week. Today we shared a big book called

The children really enjoyed this text and in particular liked the visual challenge of finding the different images within the graphics.

We continued with our Charlotte’s Web book reports. Today the children focused on giving the book a rating and recommendation. They have also re designed the cover of the book including their own blurb.

On Friday the children are invited to celebrate Book Week by dressing up as a book character. There will be a voluntary costume parade at 1030 in the hall for children to show off their costumes.

Numeracy:

 

Today we began an integrated task that includes simple budgets. The children will be designing their own mini golf backyard course. This task will also include area and shape concepts.

Religion:

Today in prayer we shared the following scripture:

Acts 2:43-47

 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

We discussed the ways people gathered and shared in the story of Jesus Christ.

We then spent time investigating what the church would look like during the different liturgical seasons. This included colours, symbols and scripture.

 

Tennis Carnival:

Congratulations to those students who attended the tennis carnival today. A chilly day to play but great sportsmanship was shown by all children.

 

Football Carnival:

Several students have nominated to attend the football carnival tomorrow. It is a strict 8:45 am departure and they must have their consent form returned before departure if it has not already been returned.

 

Welcome to our new student Fravashi who started in Year 4 today.
