Merry Christmas to Everyone!!!

We’ve been getting ready for Christmas. Today we went to the presentation by the local churches to participate in different Christmas activities and learn about why we celebrate Christmas.

We’ve also been making lots of Christmas decorations – many thanks to the children who have been teaching us how to make a simple Christmas decoration – plus providing all of the materials.

Here’s a bit of Christmas fun from the Jib Jab website. We hope you really enjoy our movies!!!

Bookweek 2012

Last we we celebrated Bookweek in lots of different ways.
We read lots of the Bookweek books, worked with Mrs Langham in the Library¬†(we read a Bookweek book called A Bus Classed Heaven and presented ourselves on a bus as community members – linking to our current inquiry unit), presented our learning at the whole school assembly, held a book sale – advertising books to our classmates and modelled this book sale for Miss Hunt’s Year 2 class, Paul read his own book called “A Sharing Community” at the assembly, we brought favourite books from home to share with our classmates and had a dress up day on Friday – we came dressed a book character fro on of our favourite stories.

Here are lots of photos showing you our fantastic week. We had so much fun celebrating books!

Even More Bucket Filling

Today we re-read “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” We’ve actually re-read it lots of times because we just love it!

We had a special “bucket filling session” and spent about 20 minutes filling other people’s buckets. We have been doing lots of bucket filling over the last few weeks.

We’ve found lots of resources on the Internet about Bucket Filling and have included a photo of a template some of us used today – but we still LOVE making our own notes for our friends.

Here are photos of our latest bucket filling session.
