Below is all our learning for today.
Come Read With Me
We started our day with some quiet reading. Practicing our reading strategies during this time
We continued our morning with some Investigations Play.
Today we looked at a story of charity as we begin to focus on Mission Week. We then discussed the following question;
What does God give to people to help them live?
Shane – God gives us our bones and our blood, and our food for us to survive and for us to not suffer.
Viraj – God gives us the boat, the water and the log. He also gave us the earth and the animals in the world. He gave us the sun and the moon.
Alexandros – He gave us the trains.
Alexia – God gave us our bodies so we can go and do things.
Dhyani – God gave us kitchen things, toys so we can play and do stuff.
Charlee – God gave us houses and parents, and gave us food and water.
Callie – God gave me my parents to look after me. God gives us water.
Mithra – God gives us life, and food and water to drink.
We also discussed the following questions
Do all people in the world have these things?
Viraj – Yes. They come from different countries but they have trains in China and India too. They have food too.
Shane – Some people have it, but some people don’t have these things. Some aren’t lucky people and they live in the desert, but they do have bones and blood. Some things they don’t have.
We continued to investigate shape today. Further discussing the shapes in the video and their properties. Really focusing on the sides, corners and lines of the shapes.
We looked at our shared text again for this week. The Gruffalo, talked about the story and the adjectives again. After this we split into 4 different literacy groups to work on the following tasks.
- Story sequencing
- Book Making
- Puppet Making
- Practicing our High Frequency Words
- Writing a sentence about the story
We went to the library today to borrow some new readers and picture books. Whilst in the library we listened to Mrs. Feher and Miss Jessop read to us.
We then spent the rest of the time using our reading strategies to read to ourselves.
