Our Day at a Glance
We started our day with a blessing in the hall with Father Shibu. We focussed on thinking about how we are all different and bring our own talents to Holy Family Catholic School.
We started our Catholic Identity Day investigations by splitting into our mobs to tidy the school yard. Children found as much rubbish as they could and sorted it into the correct bins.
After recess, the children explored different ideas we have explored throughout the year. Children were able to use their 100 languages to engage with a range of provocations.
Some provocations we gave to the children were:
- Ali’s Story
- Ecology and caring for our environment
- Smart CARA
- Caring for our gardens
- Exploring living things
- Exploring scripture
- Palm Sunday
- Jesus Feeds 5,000
- Symbols in the Catholic Church
- Acts of Kindness
- Creating prayers
- Creating churches through 100 languages
With the children’s growing interest in iMovie’s, we supported them to draw pictures on laptops, screen shot them and move them into their iMovie, and then voice record their own information about their topic of choice.
Alexa – I created God with Nhial and Declan and we gave him long legs, a hat, and we made him from blocks.
Nahom – I was playing inside, with the blocks, and I was making a Church, and I was getting some people to come in.
Eva – I was playing with Annabelle and Charlize and Dhyani, and we were playing in the home corner, playing a game how Jesus feed the 5 000, Annabelle and me were giving the bread, we starting giving some to the kids in the class.
Alexia – I was playing with my friends, and wanted to be nice to her, because that’s what friends do.
Khyle – Me, Felipe and Kobe made a Jesus chair, we used blocks to make the chair.
Oliver – Me and Max was making an iMovie together, Max taught me how to and Miss Quigley. My iMovie was about Jesus.
