Our book week

To-day we all dressed up as our favourite characters from our books we read. We tried our best to use our brain to create our costumes. We had to ask our family to help us with our costumes because we can't do it by ourselves. 

Some of us were greedy cats and one of us was a robot because he read the book, 'Why do we eat?' We all enjoyed sharing about ourselves because they were fun and exciting. The big bad wolf wanted to eat grandma and little red riding hood. So many stories we shared about to-day. We hope that we will do it again in the near future.

Caught in action

Our best learning circle. We do meditations once every fortnight.  When we have this time to ourselves, I think of Mum at home and Dad at work. I sometimes feel that I miss them so much.

I always pray and ask God to look after them while I am away. I also think of my 'Mum & daughter time" during the school holidays.

This is a time where I get to speak to God silently in my brain. I always look forward to my meditation time with the soft sleepy music.

Catholic School Day with St Patrick & St Ignatius

One rainy, cloudy day, our whole school went to St Patrick School at Panmure. It was quite cold,  but we were more excited to see other students from the other two (2) schools. 

We all went to church as Fr John, Fr Felise and Fr Andrew co-celebrated the mass for us. St Patrick and St Ignatius were waiting for us to arrive.

We all sang our hearts out as we really loved singing with the other schools. We were also excited as we were looking forward to meet new students.
                                                                                                        Finally, mass ended and we all went to have lunch. Sadly, it was raining and we all had to return but we all enjoyed the trip down to our neighbouring catholic school.

Our Mother's Day Weekend

In the weekend, we celebrated Mother's Day. All our Dads and cousins, gave our Mums and Grandmothers some cards. In the cards, we all drew pictures and wrote a note for them. We also gave them a big party. Some of us made lots and lots of food, while some were making cakes, some were making muffins & pancakes, some of us helped to prepare the pigs and of course all of us helped to eat with Mum and Grandma.
We all felt so special because our Mums has done so much for us and we were trying to make her feel like an angel by making her smile and relax.

The Sunflower

Last Friday afternoon,  Meela was playing with her classmates for our DP after lunch. Everyone built their own designs using different things like blocks, papers, dinosaurs and different shapes.

Meela took time to think of something to design. While she was thinking, everyone else did their own thing and built their own adventures. She finally made up her mind that she will  make something super special. 

She made a yellow sunflower with a white shell to protect it from the insects. The whole class were excited to see her beautiful creation.

Our mufti day

On this beautiful Thursday, it is our mufti day for lent.  We got to wear anything and we had to bring a gold coin.  The money is to pay for us wearing different clothes than our school uniform.  With this money, we can help other families who will need support.  We also learnt in class about almsgiving where we can help people who are in need. 
Lend a hand, let's make a difference!!!

Happy Easter Room 4 Glen Innes School

This week we are learning about Easter. We have been learning about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. 

We also learnt that it is not about chocolates and easter eggs but about the life of Jesus and the sacrifices he made.

Our class enjoyed making an Easter card for Room 4 at Glen Innes School. 
Meela is colouring her easter egg.

 Annabelle is colouring hers too.

Jaden is cutting off our pictures.

A Day to Remember

By Preston.

Last week on Tuesday, it was my 6th birthday but I slept at my Nana and Poppa's house. My cousin was there too. She lives far far away from our house. My cousin always lets me go on her phone. She also has a big television. She always wants me to sleep with her because I'm her best friend.

She has a boyfriend and I am always excited to be with her and her boyfriend.  The next morning, Mum and Dad came to take me home. They bought me a guitar for my birthday. I was always allowed to go to the movies when it is my birthday. 

I had fun with my family on my special day. I got my favourite cake too, a chocolate cake.

Our Assembly

At Assembly, the whole school were there. Some of our parents were there too. We felt a little shy because we had to dance in front of the whole school. 
At the end of it, we were all excited because we heard them clapping their hands. Room 3 did a great job hosting it. Christopher, Crystallani and Pauliasi received a certificate from Mr. Coakley.

We were also excited to get 2 Duffy books to take home. We will read during the school holidays.

Our new home

Our new home 
by Jaden

When I went to my new home, I was super excited. I ran inside to check it out. My room is upstairs. The kitchen is downstairs with another bedroom. 

I looked around and I especially liked the sitting room because it is huge with super space for my toys and my family gatherings.

I am glad, I have a new home.
