MINDFUL MORNINGS 

We are transforming our timetable and trying a new time within our day to have mindfulness. Miss Battifuoco and I have discussed and reviewed where we currently have mindfulness and would like to try to have it in the first moments of our day. We hope that this will create a calm and inviting space for the children to come into in the morning and then is a chance to set positive affirmations and intentions for their day.

Today we introduced the idea to the children and discussed the use of our five senses during mindfulness. We sat in a gentle cross legged position with our hands on our knees. Our eyes were gently crossed over, with our bodies up straight the children were told to imagine a silver cord pulling the crown of their head up towards the ceiling. By creating this vision the children’s bodies and posture immediately changed.

Once everyone was in this calm position, we took some mindful breaths. We firstly took deep breaths in and out and then I got the children to transfer their breaths just to their nose. I asked them to feel the cool air as they breathed in and the warm air as they breathed out. After taking mindful breaths we said some positive affirmations for our day. I said them and the children then repeated after me 3 times.

  • I am strong. 
  • I am brave. 
  • I can do anything. 

The children all responded really well and this was a lovely way to start our morning. For this to continue we encourage the children to be at class at the first bell to get themselves organised. At the second bell they can independently put their things away and then come to mat ready to start our day calmly and peacefully.

LIBRARY 

Today in library we read the story Pig the Tourist. Annaliese and Kiziah read the story for 3JM and …. read the story for 3IB.

You cant take him anywhere!

When Pig, the worlds greediest Pug, goes on holiday, he causes CHAOS wherever he travels! But every party must come to an end…

Reflections from the story;

  • Kristina – Pig the Pug was being really bad when he was travelling everywhere
  • Krystian – Pig the Pug was being rude because he went everywhere but didn’t share
  • Rhoda – Pig the Pug went places and he was being really bad and kept on disrupting what people were doing
  • Lara – Pig the Pug was being naughty and the piranha bit him so then he wasn’t naughty.

SPANISH 

Today in Spanish the children played a game where they had to pull different photos out of a Piñata and then guess what they are.

PRAYER 

We started prayer with Aidan’s bucket filling for his birthday yesterday.

  • Holly – Aidan is a really kind friend and he makes me laugh
  • Jas- Aidan you are really kind to everybody
  • Bella- You make everyone smile
  • Ann- You make people life
  • DD- You are nice friend and we can play games
  • Anna- You are really nice friend and cheer people up when they are down
  • Ava- You are really funny and if your friends didn’t have you they wouldn’t laugh so much
  • Kurt- You always use creativity in investigations

We then offered the children to say their own prayers a loud to the group. We had different prayers for family, travel, and gratitude.

SPRING FAIR PROVOCATIONS

Over the next two days the children will have the opportunity to work on a number of different provocations. These provocations cover a lot of different curriculum areas and give the children an opportunity to have agency for their own learning. Here is a sample of the different activities;

 

Spring Fair Investigations

The children will continue on with these provocations tomorrow. Check out what they did today on their laptop tonight!

MINDFULNESS 

Today we used a choice of different drawing websites for mindfulness. The children were able to find 9 different options and open them on a flip chart. They have this on their desktop if they want to access them from home too.

MATH – Division

We continued our learning about division practicing the skill of dividing by two. We worked in our math books to write the sums for division.

FITNESS 

We ended our day on the playground to do a obstacle course for fitness.

POSITIVE ED – CLARA Reflections and Goal Setting 

Mindful Agency

Whats this about?

This dimension is about taking responsibility for my own learning and for improving it. It’s about how I manage my feelings, my time, my energy, my actions and the things I need to achieve my goals. It’s about knowing what I want to achieve – and why, then knowing how to go about it; stepping out on the path towards my goals. People who have Mindful Agency take time to reflect and think things through; they like to understand the big picture and how each part fits together. They plan ahead and ask questions like, ‘Where am I coming from?’, ‘Where am I now?’, ‘Where am I going?’ and ‘How will this task help me to get there?’ Learners with very little Mindful Agency are quite likely to react hastily or mindlessly to whatever they encounter. They are less self-aware and may confuse self-awareness with self-consciousness

Mindful agency looks like;

  • Thoughtful about intentions
  • Makes conscious choices about how to learn
  • Plans and applies effective learning strategies
  • Reflects on personal learning experiences
  • Takes responsibility for own development

Today we explored what mindful agency is. We talked about what it means and what is looks like when we are learning. The children then made their own definition of mindful agency and then wrote 3 goals out for term 4.

MUSIC 

LITERACY- Recount Writing

The children wrote a recount about their holidays. We recapped what a recount needs and went through the process of writing one. We gave an example of how it can be written.

Image result for recount writing for kids

INVESTIGATIONS – Holidays 

The children had a holiday inspired investigations where they were able to show us what they got up to with their 100 languages.

MINDFULNESS 

We used a listening story for mindfulness today that was the warm up preposition activity. The children had to place different items on a picture in different positions.

LITERACY – Prepositions 

This afternoon we explored prepositions. We first started by learning what a preposition is and then completed a series of different activities that used skills in recognising and using prepositions.

Here is a sample of some of the activities they did. You can see the children’s finished work on their laptop.

BIRTHDAYS 

In the holidays it was Mason and Holly’s birthdays. We celebrated by singing them Happy Birthday in our special 3JM and 3IB way and finished with some bucket filling.

Mason:

  • Joey– Mason your a very good friend.
  • Angok– Mason is so nice to everyone body
  • Mia– Mason always smiles
  • Darcy– Your kind to people
  • Maddox– You are a good friend
  • Jake– You are kind and nice

Holly:

  • Ann– You are really nice and a good friend
  • Jas– You always help people when they are sad
  • Bella– You are very funny
  • Libby- When I always see you, you make me feel happy
  • Aurora- You are a very nice friend and we look alike
  • Frankie- You always let everyone join in
  • Aidan- You are a good friend and help people when they are sad
  • Joey- Your a very good friend

BRAINTEASER – LITERACY 

https://www.literacyshed.com/the-egyptian-pyramids.html

In keeping with our theme of past, present and future, our writing prompt for today came in the form of an animated video. A video about the Egyptian pyramids.

We then used our agency and decided how personally would like to respond to the clip. Some of us chose to re-tell the story, create our own narrative, write about what we know about pyramids … the possibilities were endless!

  • Krystian- A man went inside to get a trophy but when he got out it was just chocolate
  • Libby- he went on a ride that actually looked so real
  • Raf- He was getting chased by a mummy that I thought was real

Where was the story set?

  • Mia- In a cave
  • Jake- In a amusement park

PRAYER 

Image result for prayers about teamwork

For those who had been given permission today we had our Being Sexual – MITIOG lesson.

FITNESS 

We head outside for some vitamin D and to get our heart rates up! Together as a class, we used collaboration to play a modified game of t-ball! We used a soccer ball instead of a T! It was super fun and at the end of the game we made sure we shook hands 🙂

ART 

Today for art we did a how to draw workshop.

We then followed this with the children filming their own ‘how to draw video‘. They had to set up their laptops and then record themselves using Photobooth. They were then able to speed the video up to make it go quicker to show the progress of their drawing.

SLEEPOVER REMINDERS

Image result for school sleepover

Hello Everyone,

With just one sleep to go we wanted to clarify a few things for sleepover.

Children come to school Thursday like a normal school day in school uniform. Children will then go home, shower, get ready in active wear and then return to school with everything for sleepover.

Arrival for sleep over at school is 5pm to then get started as soon as possible with our evening activities planned. We have a schedule with everything planned so prompt arrival would be greatly appreciated. The children will arrive and come straight to the hall to set up their bedding. If they are going to need assistance with this please arrive with enough time to help them do so. They will need to be dressed in active wear ready for outdoor activities (This may include a jumper for when it gets cooler in the night). They have been put in teams and can wear the colour of their team if they want to. This is not a necessity as they will all be getting a bandana to wear. The teams are;

RKKMBA Animal Lovers Da Jeff Dragacorn Teamwork Dreams COOL KIDS PIKA POWER
Raf Noah Dion Joey Ash Jaiden Aidan
Krystian Kiziah Eva Tcross Cierra Nate Jevan
Keren Libby Frankie Lara Rho Mia Annaliese
Mary Bella Aurora Ann Holly Nev Akem
Bianca Ebony Jake Anna Jas DD Ava
Andy Angok Darcy Makur Iris

The teams worked together yesterday to create a name, logo and special handshake for their team. All the children worked beautifully to create their teams and showed great teamwork and collaboration.

We have ordered the pizza and garlic bread for dinner and we ensured that we asked all children what they would eat so that everyone is catered for.

If there is anything in particular you children need to go to sleep at night please let them bring it. We want it to be as comfortable as it would be at home and that might mean bringing something that is special to them.

Friday is pyjama day so the children can stay in their pyjama’s on Friday but will need a gold coin donation for Spring Fair. They can bring this gold coin in Thursday to class or Thursday to sleep over.

Laptops- if you want to bring your laptop for Friday you will need to go home and charge it on Thursday afternoon and then bring it in their bag for Friday. We are not able to charge everyone’s laptops ready for Friday at school so this is optional to bring it and have it on Friday. We will not be planning any activities that will rely on the use of the laptop for Friday and will not be using the laptops at sleepover.

What to bring;

  • Something to sleep on eg. an already blown-up mattress, camp bed or yoga mat
  • Some bedding or sleeping bag and pillow
  • Pyjamas, teddy (optional), slippers or thongs
  • Toiletries (toothbrush/toothpaste/hairbrush/hair ties)
  • Reusable plastic plate, bowl and spoon to use and take home
  • Refillable drink bottle
  • Recess and lunch for Friday (canteen order optional)

If you have any more questions please feel free to email or call the school and we can answer these.

We have lots of very excited children and look forward to seeing you all at 5pm tomorrow night.

MATH 

Today the children worked on a Kahoot that covered 2, 3 5 and 10 times tables. After this they completed a Timestables Assessment. This is an opportunity to show what they know from what we have been working on over the last 4 weeks. It also gives us a benchmark to move forward from. They all tried their hardest and did their best. Please keep working on all the times tables over the holidays.

MINDFULNESS 

We watched a story for mindfulness today. This helps the children to settle their bodies after running around at lunch time.

SLEEPOVER – Amazing Race Teams 

On Thursday afternoon at sleepover we will be engaging in an Amazing Race type activity. The children will be in 7 teams and will complete 7 different tasks on and around the oval. We will give more information about these in our sleepover blog post later in the weeks we want it to be a surprise. This afternoon the children found out what team they will be in and then had to think of different things for their team. These included;

  • A name for their team
  • A logo for their team
  • A motto for their team

The children are allowed to wear a coloured top that matches their team if they please but it is not necessary. They will all get a bandana that is their team colour.

Where have you heard the word Trinity before?

  • Jake- In Mass songs
  • Aurora- in the jewel of the crown

MEMORY Monday September 16

Image result for the best thing about memories is making them

 

 

POSITIVE EDUCATION 

We have been using the language of past, present and future. This morning the children had to think of 4 different special memories and then write why those memories were special.

What do you think your brain DOESN’T remember?

  • Ann – Things that you don’t want to think about
  • Deakyn – Things that are scary and you don’t like it, you can make it disappear
  • Ava – I think its the bad stuff like similar to bad water for living sea creatures
  • Aurora – I don’t think you would remember the first baby food you ate
  • Kurt – Things like nightmares

What do you think your brain DOES remember?

  • Bianca – My brain does remember about playing with my mum in my old house because I really like my mum playing with me
  • Jake – Somethings when you’re eating something and someone asks you something and it was about a week later
  • Deakyn – When you’re a friend from reception like Aidan and Kurt
  • Anna – You remember to wake up like around 7am
  • Ava – I think you can store lots of memories of all the people that you love and is precious to you. I remember most of my teachers name

Before the children moved off to write we brainstormed some different memories….

  • Miss Moore– Going to Fiji with Miss Battifuoco. It was special because we got to meet lots of new people and experience a different culture. We also spent lots of time in the sun and ocean.
  • Maddox – Going to summer
  • Angok – My first soccer game
  • Darcy – I remember going in the summer and going to the beach
  • Jas – When I went to Kurt’s birthday party
  • Jevan – An Essendon game I went to in Queensland
  • Libby – My first birthday, I remember what type of party it was, it was a Giggle and Hoot party at a park
  • Joey- When I met Raf at kindy and I was playing on the swings and Raf asked me to push him
  • Nate- When I met Sonny in kindy and when I first met him there was a fireman at kindy and there was a fire truck and we got to go in the truck and squirt water
  • Krystian- When I had my first day of school
  • Ash- When I first met Jas and DD and they were kind to me
  • Noah- When I met Jaiden in kindy

Here is what the children wrote…

MUSIC 

Today in music the children had their assessments for the recorder.

PRAYER 

Who is the Pope/ what do they do?

  • Jake- Pope John believed in God a lot and Christian’s parsed him because he was one of the most liked Christians
  • Ash- Pope Francis believes in God and tries to teach people to believe in God
  • Libby- I think the Pope prays to God nearly every night and tells people that God is real
  • Aurora- I think a Pope is someone who is like a priest in church and tries to read one bible story every night and prays to God
  •  Anna- I think a Pope is someone who believes in God and Jesus and wants to become a saint
  • Akem- I think a Pope is someone who helps people and tries to help people to read the bible everyday and help them to believe in God and Jesus
  • Tcross- I think a Pope tells bible stories like a priest

Who is Pope Francis…

Image result for pope francis

Pope Francis (Latin: Franciscus, Italian: Francesco, Spanish: Francisco; born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936) is the 266th and current pope of the Catholic Church. He was elected on 13 March 2013. He chose the name Francis to honor St. Francis of Assisi.

The pope has two big jobs: He’s the bishop of Rome, which means he has supreme, full, immediate, and universal jurisdiction all over the world (although the title says “Rome,” the job encompasses the whole Church). He’s the head of the entire Catholic Church.

Ecclesiastical letters are publications or announcements of the organs of Roman Catholic ecclesiastical authority, e.g. the synods, but more particularly of pope and bishops, addressed to the faithful in the form of letters. One of these letters is Laudato Si’. Care for our common home. We watched this video and then discussed the importance of it and how we can care for our environment.

  • Noah- Recycle
  • Libby- The food you buy from the shop, like fruit and stuff, you can get some seeds and plant them at home
  • Aurora- You can pick up rubbish if you see any on the floor and plant more trees and flowers to make sure our earth is full of nature
  • Rho- You can always clean the earth clean
  • Anna- When you have old toys you can either save them for someone else, make it into something new or sell them
  • Ash- Don’t throw rubbish in the oceans and if you grow out of your clothes give them a second life by giving them to other people
  • Cierra- When you don’t want something any more and if it doesn’t fit you can give it to the poor people so they can survive
  • Angok- Don’t waste water
  • Bianca- Recycle
  • Joey- I can give donations like old toys to the poor or for people who don’t have much stuff
  • Aidan- You can save electricity by turning lights off when the sun is out
  • Mia- If you have a dripping tap at home you can get bucket and put it under neath and then give it to the plants
  • Tcross- You can use metal straws instead of plastic straws because plastic straws hurt the environment
  • Aurora- We can stop cutting down trees
  • Libby- They said people think there is an unlimited amount of things in the world but there actually isn’t, like if people cut down all the trees there won’t be enough oxygen
  • Akem- If I have any clothes that don’t fit me I can give it to charity

INVESTIGATIONS 

Some provocations for the children today included;

  • Create a timeline of your life. Draw each year you have been alive… What will you look like when you are older? What job do you think you will have? Where do you think you will live?
  • Make a then and now book- comparing things of the past to how they are in the present
  • Create a song about the past, present or future. Write lyrics, create music is Garage Band, make it into an iMovie.

MINDFULNESS 

LITERACY 

This afternoon 3JM did some work with verbs. We recapped what a verb is and then made a list of different verbs we know. The children then completed some verb work before writing their own sentences.
