MAGIC Monday June 22 – Week 9 Term 2

Welcome to Monday June 22!

Week 9 WOW!

Today we say ‘good bye’, actually we say ‘see you soon’ to Miss Farina. We are so grateful for your time in our learning community. Thank you for your commitment, passion, kindness and dedication. We think you’re going to be the best teacher ever!


We continued working on our fiction books in Spanish this morning. We have engaged with this provocation all term and are excited to finish and share our learning.  Stay tuned! 


This morning we head outside to complete another session of stamina running. We have the option to run, jog or even walk. Our aim is to be moving our bodies in some way for the entire 20 minutes. We then record our achievements on a column graph.


Today we shared a special prayer altogether as a class. We engaged in a Guided Meditation. It was called ‘Jesus is for Everyone.’

How does Jesus show he loves all off us?

  • Hong-Phuc – He told Peter to leave us be and he wanted to hear our laughter all the time. He belongs to us and it means he loves us and is in our hearts and will always listen
  • Rachael – He was polite in the way he told Peter to let the children go
  • Ayrton – He cares about everyone
  • Billy – He is always in our hearts
  • Yafet – He wants to accept everyone no matter what


Today we focussed on our Word Study for the week. Our focus words have been chosen from our writing on Friday surrounding Refugees. Our attitudes towards our word study is focussed and positive which the teachers were delighted to hear!


Collaboratively we re-capped the different reading strategies that we have focussed on this term. Students had the opportunity to share their understandings of reading aloud, determining importance and reading aloud. 


Thank you to the lovely ladies in the canteen who provided us a beautiful, delicious shared lunch today! We said grace and showed our gratitude for such a lovely group experience.  We were grateful to eat spring rolls, fried rice and even some chocolate mousse for dessert! This was a lovely way to spend Miss Farina’s last day. 


Due to our shared lunch, today we visited the library as a double class. Miss Farina read our story ‘Garbage Guts’.
