Our story begins here!
Another school year begins and with it comes lots of wonderful days to look forward to and memories to create. We hope you enjoy getting a little glimpse into what happens in our class throughout the year. We love sharing some of our school activities with the people we love.
So we're coming to the end of our basketball block in PE and it is all gearing up for our basketball matches this week and next. Today we did station work. At one station we had to run as we bounced and kept control of the ball. At the second station we were aiming into the basketball net. At the next station we were practicing our bounce pass and chest pass and at the final station we had to bounce a ball on the spot while looking up at our partner and calling out how many fingers she was holding up. We all rotated from group to group and our teacher is so proud of the progress we have made with our basketball skills over the last few weeks. Check us out!
We are called to be followers of Jesus
We have been learning that just as Jesus chose this 12 disciples, we too have been chosen to be Jesus' followers. We must try to spread love and kindness to everyone. As Jesus says ;love one another as I have loved you.'
- As part of our comprehension story 'Where is Max?' which is a story about Luke's 9th birthday party, we became the party hosts and made some delicious fairy buns in school today. There were a few things we had to be able to do in order to make our buns. We had to::
- make sure our hands were clean and hair was tied up
- preheat our oven
learn what a sieve, wire rack, bun tray and bun cases are used for
weigh our ingredients
follow the rescipe step by step
work out what time the buns will be ready by based on the time they went in at and how long they take to bake
leave them to cool on the wire rack and finally the best part,
- BRING THEM HOME TO EAT!!!
Our class is very special because we are made up of 4 different groups of girls from 4 different classes, coming together to make one class. We are getting on great and it is such fun getting to know other girls. We are making new friends in our multi-grade class but we also enjoy catching up with our friends in 2nd class and 3rd class too.
Fun in the sun!
The sun was shining and what better way to spend an afternoon than outside doing PE with all our friends. We are focusing on basketball skills this month and it was great fun!
Learning cursive handwriting!
The girls in 2nd class are working hard on learning cursive handwriting this year and the girls in 3rd class are perfecting their beautiful letter formation. When we are learning capital and lower case letters in cursive scripts, we practice by forming the letters in the air, on our tables, on each others backs, we form them in sand, we form them with play doh before practicing them in our cursive handwriting copies. We also love the few minutes at the end of the lesson where we get to be 'kids' again and make whatever we want from play doh. Sssshhhhh, don't tell anyone!!
