Come Read with Me is a wonderful way to start the day
After fitness we used catalogues and magazines to cut out our favourite foods. We had fun chatting with our friends about the foods we love. We will use these cut outs again later to sort healthy and unhealthy foods.
Today we focused again on our writing, trying to write as much as we can. Some of us chose to write about the Three Little Pigs (the shared reading text we have been reading all week
So many activities….such as playing with the Barbies, making costumes, lego, play dough and dinosaurs.
Today we had a group of children work together to make some playdough. They took turns measuring how much flour, water and salt was needed. After they used their imagination to play with it – we saw cookies, jewellery, balls, pancakes and more!!!
Ivy “i mixed the flour and the salt..then we put in water. I am making a donuts with the playdough”
Massa “i am making a dog” Abel “i am making a chicken”
Korbon was making ‘forky’ inspired from the toy story movie… he had some great ideas “i need arms, eyes and legs…i think i might paint on legs”
Celina and Yamin were enjoying the craft table “we are using collaboration working together to make something, maybe its a letterbox”
We practiced singing some prayer songs together.
Ekkman: Dear God, thank you for the people at school Amen
Abel: Dear God thank you for Jesus Amen
Micky: Dear God thank you for the zoo Amen
Fatumata: Dear God thank you for my family Amen
Braiden: Grateful for Lego Amen
We read the story ‘Goldilocks and the three bear’s role modelling fluency and expression. This is our shared reading book we are looking at all week.
We looked at Goldilocks and the three bears and discussed sizing!! Big, Medium and small – how do we know? how do we measure? We listened to a learning story about measuring…
What were the characters in the book using to measure how much they loved each other?
Yasmin: They were showing how much they loved each other
We then came back as a group to discuss our findings.
Richard – you have to put your hands in the right place otherwise it wont be right
Deeksha – hands are different sizes so it changes it
Abel’s very hungry caterpillar book, inspired by our shared reading text. excellent retelling, sentence structure, comprehension and spelling phonetically – love your pictures aswell! well done Abel you have worked so hard on this book.
Dylan “my book is about super boats, one is rare, one is original…they are racing to the finish line. this race is super special. i wonder who is going to be the winner”
We had a special assembly with a focus for NADIOC week. Our class got to present a song on the stage for all to see – we did a really amazing job! Here is the song we sung!
Athian: Dear God thank you for flowers and the animals amen.
Shiyla: Thank you for my dogs Amen
Massa: Dear God thank you for all the flowers and Mum and Dad Amen
Adhip: Dear God thank you for the earth Amen

We are focusing of Fairy Tales! This week and next week we are looking at Goldilocks and the three bears. We are looking at songs and different versions of the story to see other interpretations. We are looking at adjectives of the characters, comprehension and narrative writing. Mrs Canala read us one version of the story role modelling fluency and expression.
