Alana – A celebration is when you are a from a culture and you celebrate the place.

Vedika – When you come together with some family and friends that is a celebration

 

What are different celebrations you know of?

Eliana – We celebrate in church

Harmony – You can make things and then go to a party

Hannah – Mother’s Day & Father’s Day

Alana – Chinese New Year.

How and what do we celebrate in church?

Eliana – We learn about when Jesus died

Will – The celebration of when Jesus made a sacrifice for us. 

Ayan – The priest helps us learn about God. 

Students then spent some time drawing a picture of a time when they joined in a celebration. Below you will see images of what the students drew. 

 

 

Thank You to everyone who has sent in photos of them celebrating with their families. We would be more than happy to receive anymore! We will be looking through them as a class on Friday.

Health

This Term in health we will be looking at children’s right, and the right that – all children have to be safe and feel safe. We started by looking at what are children rights, and what do we as children have a right to.

 

Below is what we came up with.

 

We also talked about who is responsible for making sure we get these things.

We decided that the following people are responsible;

Us/ourselves

Our Parents

Whoever we live with

Our teachers

Our friends

 

Welcome to Term 2!

We had a wonderful & happy start to Term 2!

We hope you all had a lovely break spent with your families & enjoyed the sunshine when it was out! Shanay and I are so excited for everyone to be back and for us to start another term filled with growth and learning. 

Take a look at our calendar for this week.

Interactive Writing

This term we are going to have a go at writing ourselves & being brave spellers during ‘Interactive Writing’. This is where we have a phrase/joke/word we want to write and we work together to sound it out and listen for each sound in the word.

Today we wrote: ‘The first day of school is Tuesday.’

 

 

 

 

Thanks for a wonderful first day! We will see you all again tomorrow.
