This afternoon the children continued to work on their emotions book for writer’s workshop. Check out some of their illustrations and writing:
Today the children were very busy inside the class and in the courtyard, exploring, building and creating.
Next Thursday, 29th November, we will be celebrating our end of year mass.
Where: St John Paul II Hall
You are welcome to join us as we celebrate our year and the graduating class of year 6/7’s.
There has been a change of date for the volunteer morning tea. It will now be held on Thursday 29th November (week 7) at 10:20am in the Staff Room.
This morning, the children began to learn about The Nativity. We watched some of the clip by The Beginners Bible.
The children reflected on what we watched:
The king is angry because he don’t like Jesus – Massa
Jesus was born and Mary loved him so much – Maddison
When the king went to see the baby, when they celebrated – Brooklynne
The king was very angry because he didn’t like Jesus and he said to Jesus, the baby was asleep and the baby was called God. They followed the star and then they loved the baby and all the animals was quiet and the baby got our of her tummy – Porsha
The baby was called Jesus – Ivan
Joseph and Mary came a long way to Bethlehem and they found a house for Joseph and Mary to sleep in and Jesus. People followed the star to find Jesus – Navya
The king didn’t know who everyone was talking about, about the new king – Eva
The king was angry because he don’t like Jesus and they was angry at the boys who were going to see the baby – Tanish
Today, the children did a drawn reflection of The Nativity. We will continue to explore The Nativity until the end of term, adding more of our 100 languages as we make sense of the birth of Jesus.
The children recorded a picture of themselves in their Writing Books. We worked together to write, “I like me because…”
Tuesday and Wednesday have been very busy days with lots of investigations. The children continue to explore our inside environment due to the inclement weather. We have also begun to add touches of Christmas to our class, with the addition of a small Christmas tree (which the children have been decorating) and Nativity. The children have also been busy painting their own tree. Camping and schools are still popular in the home corner, with Beyblades and paper crafts engaging children elsewhere. We have had such high levels of engagement this week, as the children collaborate in their investigations.
