Today for our Maths warmup, students in 3/4C were given a number on their back. They needed to go around the class asking yes or no questions to guess their number. Well done to Cindy, Haydar and James for asking great questions and being the first three in the class to work out their number.
You can try this activity at home! If you do, let me know in the comment section who was the first to guess their number in your family.
In the comment section below, add three words to continue the story! Let’s see if we can create a great story together as a year level. Make sure you read all the comments, before adding your three words, to make the story flow.
Today is World Refugee Day, it is a time to consider the millions of children with no place to call home.
For some child refugees they live in constant fear, uncertainly and instability. Where will their next meal come from? Where will they sleep? For these children, basics like a full tummy and going to school are distant memories… and they only laugh, play and sleep with their favourite blankets in their dreams.
Worldwide, nearly 28 million children have been forced from their homes, including 10 million child refugees and an estimated 17 million more who are displaced within their own countries. These homeless children desperately need our help. (https://savethechildren.com)
This morning we gathered together as a year level to pray for the refugees. In the Catholic Church no one is a stranger; the Church has a strong tradition of welcoming the stranger and the Church is open to anyone, anywhere.
Congratulations to the following children who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday.
It was such a beautiful service and the students looked fabulous.
In Holy Communion, Jesus comes to each one of us. Sharing this mystery together makes us one with each other and one with Jesus. We are joined in a special way with Jesus and the family of God.
A ‘shout out’ needs to go to Mrs Galea who ran several workshops with the students to prepare them for this sacrament.
Photos coming soon
