Welcome back to the students of 4RG and I hope you all had a lovely break with your families. Term 3 is going to be another exciting term of learning and exploring with many special events in store. The excitement starts tomorrow with our first excursion for the term. We are off to Woolworths to explore food and food production. This will be a reoccurring theme in our investigations this term.
We started the morning with a welcome and then moved straight to Guided Reading. This weeks activities are as follows
Independent Reading: This term we will be building our reading stamina
Blogging: Head over to your Childs blog to see their recount from their holiday break.
Prayer hosted by Leon and Lincoln
Leon: Dear God, I show love when I with God by praying. I show love to my Mum and Dad whenI give them a hug.
Lincoln: Dear God, I show love when I say nice things to my friends and my family and I also show love when somebody is hurt and I help them.
Children used their 100 languages to explore two questions and shared their answers with a friend.
Evie, Shylah and Mia had a funeral for our tabby ‘Blueberry’. They enjoyed role playing whilst sharing a prayer for the yabby.
Health: Keeping Safe Curriculum
This term we will be learning about Keeping Safe exploring topics such as ‘The right to be safe’, ‘Relationships’, “Recognising and reporting Abuse’ and “Protective Strategies’. Today children used their prior knowledge to describe what ‘safety looks, feel and sounds like’. We had time to share our ideas in small groups and then as a class.
We had a lovely time showing our Year 2 buddies all of our arcade games and playing with them. We also had two groups share their dances with the Year 2 buddies and try to teach them how to do it as well.
Setting Goals for Term3 and updating our Safety Plans
We have been reflecting on our achivements this term and setting our selves up for success for the new Term. Head over to your Childs blog to read about their Term 3 goal setting.
We have loved having Riley be apart of our learning community here in 4RG. We wish him the best as he moves to his new school. To say goodbye we enjoyed some donuts and presented Riley with our ‘secret’ farewell card.
Thank yo to everyone especially the children of 4FRG f0r continuing to grow and learn. We have had another great term together. Wish everyone a happy Term break and see you in Term 3!
This semester, 4RG have learnt about text types. Our particular focus has been on recounts, narratives and procedures. To complete and revise our learning and to celebrate our growth, the children participated in 3 different Kahoots. One Kahoot tested the students knowledge on narratives, one on recount and one on procedures. The children had a lot of fun in this interactive and non-intimidating learning experience.
