Tuesday Week 10 Term 1 – March 31
I hope that everyone is keeping safe and keeping healthy. Remember that the government guidelines are to stay at home unless you are travelling to school or work, to get essentials from the supermarket or chemist and to exercise. It is in everyone’s interest to follow these guidelines to ensure we can slow and stop the spread. At school we will continue to clean throughout the day as well as practice safe hygiene (washing hands any time we enter the room) and educating the children about social distancing.
If you would like to drop your children at the door in the morning we will help them to unpack their bag and get sorted for their day. We pray as a community that everyone keeps healthy and safe and that all our essential workers at this time are supported and cared for.
If anyone needs support please have a look at this page for links to different ways to support your self at this time.
As we continue with the Easter Story
- Read the story – The Easter Story (provided in email)
- Create a mini book of the story
- Create a poster advertising the story
- Act out the story (involve siblings or toys as different characters)
Our focus for prayer today was Maundy (Holy) Thursday or the Last Supper. We used the power point to go through what Maundy Thursday is and watched the video below.
We then let the children reflect on what they know about the Last Supper.
- Alexandros – Judas is going to betray Jesus
- Viraj- Judas is going to tell the bad people, the wine and the bread remember Jesus before he went on the cross
- Shylah- They had bread to the disciples and its for Jesus body and the wine was for the blood
- Monqiue- He was giving the bread to people and then he gave it away to people to share and he would never be mean and he would be nice to everybody
Hungry Caterpillar Addition
Today we used our number skills to start some simple addition. We used unisex cubes to count and add on. As a group we put the addition sums on the board and worked through them together.
Today the children enjoyed using the home corner and dress up materials, the lego, painting and paper craft to explore their thinking and make meaning.
Take 5 minutes to sit quietly and concentrate on your breathing, lay flat in a comfortable, quiet place and relax every part of your body. Start at your toes and work all the way up to your head.
This week the story we read in library was ‘Australians all love Easter eggs’. The story explored Easter Bunny’s journey to get to Bunyip Creek and the troubles he had along the way to get there.
R1JM Single Lesson
This afternoon we continued our learning about the letter Gg. We went through what sound the letter makes and then how we write both the capital and lower case letter Gg. We used our ‘Get Squiggling’ video to go through the correct letter formation and then draw and write things that start with the letter Gg.
We ended our lesson with some music and movement.
OUR LEARNING SA is a website that has been developed by curriculum management and expert teachers.

For parents with their children at home – please remember that at school the children have a 20-minute recess and 40-minute lunch break. They also have a brain break (fruit) in the morning. As well as other brain breaks (movement breaks) during the day. Their day at home should also include this.
