Good morning everyone. This morning we had class prayer and our focus was on being thankful and grateful.
We began by reading a story from the bible about the ten lepers. How come ten men got healed and only one came back to say thankyou to Jesus?
In our lives, we are quick to complain about things that go wrong, but how many times do we stop and say “Thankyou” to God for all the good things that are happening in our lives?
Today, the children said “Thankyou.” We especially thanked God for bringing Alexia into our lives, even if it was for such a short time. She radiated our classroom with lots of love and her beautiful smile won over everybodys’ hearts.
God Bless you Alexia!
Lily: Dear God, thankyou for everyone. Everyday we see new people and make new friends.
Anna: Thankyou God for everything you have given us, and thankyou for Alexia because she was my friend and she was really special.
Saanvi: Thankyou G od for everything that you give us. Thankyou for Alexia because she was a very nice person.
Naomi: Dear God thankyou for Alexia. Alexias’ my best friend and I really miss her.
Oliver: Dear God, I hope Alexia has the best birthday ever
Manseerat: Thankyou God for our families. We would be lonely if we didn’t have friends.
Javieria: Dear God, thankyou for Alexia because we love her very much and we love everything.
Jess: Thankyou God for birthdays and Alexia. If we didn’t have birthdays, we couldn’t grow
Some children from R1/TB, with a few buddies, and Mrs Braiotta went into the staffroom to make blue jelly for our edible ecosystem. When the jelly is half set, we will put mint leaves (seaweed), long straps (eels, snakes,fish), Licorice – red and black (coral, seaweed), gummy worms (worms)into the jelly (with gloves of course) to make a clean ocean.
Jayden B: In investigations I was in the block corner and building a tower with Kurt. A flat tower and I made a game called “Don’t destroy the tower” and if the tower falls you are out of the game.
Bianca: In investigations I was making two boats, first I fold paper and then I fold the parts and then the lines. I made it because I like boats and mum showed me what they look like.
Davide: I was playing with the blocks and I was making a building with Kurt and Jayden B. We made a big building. We made it for fun.
Saanvi: In investigations Akemjot made a heart shape hole for me and I made something with it and I do not have a name for it. I made jelly to eat it and we are going to put candy in the jelly when it sets, the blue jelly is the sea. We will have healthy sea animals in it. Animals would die if they get caught in an unhealthy sea and the coral will die.
Ashmeen: In investigations we made a picnic, we used things from the kitchen we used cups, water, lemon, lettuce. I did the skittles experiment and poured water on it and it went colourful.
After recess we had relaxation and then Miss Applebee read us the story “The Ugly Fluff” and the children drew or wrote a reflection.
We then had writers’ workshop. Then it was time for lunch.
After lunch R1TB had music while R1GC did numeracy investigations. Then R1TBs’ buddies came over at 2.30 so we could all eat our beautiful healthy oceans.
