Reading : This morning we started our day with reading. We are encouraging students for follow through with texts and aim to finish a text rather than start a new one each day. With reading at home, library time and morning reading at home they should find they are able to complete books over 1-2 weeks.
Literacy Groups: This morning Mr Coad came in and worked with us for literacy groups. We are nearing the end of this rotation and we will start new activities next Tuesday.
Ash Wednesday Mass: After recess we attended whole school mass in the hall. It was a time to reflect on our Lentern promises. Fr Shibu shared 3 main themes in his Homily Fasting, Praying and Sharing. We will continue to explore these themes in the class room and we learn and reflect on the significance of each of these to the liturgical season.
Assembly Preparation: This afternoon we continued to focus on our work for assembly. We collated interview questions for Mr McCarthy and then a group of students visited the fish farm as roving reporters on a mission to find out more. We timed this visit well and were able to join in with feeding the fish for their afternoon tea. It was a sensory experience for sure with many of the students keen to wash their hands afterwards !
