After a very busy fortnight for both classes, welcome to a more sedate Week 6.
We wished Blessings a very happy birthday – she turned 9 years old yesterday. She enjoyed a really special day with friends and family by the coast.
Today we focused on Oceans in Danger. We read more about some of the main problems facing our world oceans and the marine creatures that live in and around the sea.
The children were encouraged to use their 100 languages to express the issues facing marine life. Many chose a particular sea creature and set about highlighting some of the dangers to habitat and life that our marine life faces due to human behaviour. Some students worked on iStopAnimations, others made posters, some made iMovies and others chose to write stories and letters.
The students participated in some revision on measurement this morning:
This afternoon we began our religion lesson with a beautiful song called Light The Advent Candle One. Then we read some information about Advent and the Advent wreath and the reasons behind the 5 candles.
We finished the day with some sharing from Joshua & Kai and their Minecraft world and then Kayla R shared a lovely iMovie about her baby sister Dani.
