Each day after recess we come straight in from recess into our prayer space. We have tried to make this a special time to calm our bodies after recess and being a time to pray together. We have been talking a lot this term about being reverent within this term. This comes with being deeply respectful to each other and allowing each other the time and space to pray. We have been using different calming music to settle our bodies after recess before we pray.
To continue on with our prayer from yesterday about stamina today we sat with our eyes closed and thought about stamina in an area we want to get better. We posed the question; How can God or Jesus help you to get better with your stamina?

MATH – Multiplication
Today we are introducing our multiplication learning for this year. We started by opening dialogue about what multiplication is and what the children already know.
This video breaks down what a multiplication sentence is and what the different parts mean. We stopped the video on the different sums and we talked about how the answer was calculated. For example 2 fish in each bowl and 4 fish bowls = 8, or 2 x 4 = 8.
The children used their books today to work on their two times tables. They had the task to write different multiplication sentences.
Today we relaxed with some mindful music and focused on our breath.
We started our lesson refining our poetry skills with Ronald the Rhino! We had a mini lesson where the children had to rhyme a series of different words. We used this as a warm up before completing some poetry about our dads. As a group collectively thought of words that we can use to describe our dads. We then gave an example of how to put these words into sentences that rhyme. The children worked hard on their poetry skills to create a poem for their dad.
Reminders- Please return Sleep Over notes ASAP with the payment of $20.

Once we finished our advertisements we had some time to practice our reading! It is so super important that we are reading each and every day. We are trying to increase our reading stamina.Today our goal was 10 minutes of straight reading but we couldn’t quite reach it. That’s okay – there’s always tomorrow! And the next day… and the next!
Today for our art study we are exploring famous artist Frida Kahlo. We read a story about her life and how she became an artist.
The children were able to choose a Frida portrait to recreate. They were given 5 different images to choose from and then had a go at drawing them on brown paper, creating an outline and then adding some colour. Miss Moore gave an example of how she used a growth mindset to have a go at the activity.
