1/2A loves being back at school and ready to learn!
We are so excited and grateful that we are at school with our friends for another term full of learning!
In RE we are learning that we are unique and special - and we wouldn’t have it any other way! We read the book, “A Colour of his Own” by Leo Lionni. Then we reflected on the slides from KidsHelpLine on “Being OK with Being Different”. Why would we want to blend into everything around us when we can be bold and unique? To express this metaphor we used water colour paints to make our unique coloured chameleon, using colours that had a special meaning to us.
We are also starting our writing unit on Poetry, and whilst we have only learnt about one poem type, we are already producing artistic and creative bliss! Take a sneak peek at our early drafts, and we know that our parents will eagerly await our weekly published poem on SeeSaw!

Eats a lot
Really likes you, the park, Mum, Dad and the dogs

Every day we sleep in

X-rayed last year
Winter by Lars
In the snow
Near the fire
Tea for Mum, Nan and Pa
Easy to throw snow balls and make a snowman
Have a great Term 3 Everyone! (We sure will!)
On Friday 19th June, Father Harry visited the 2/3/4 students and spoke to them about the Day in the Life of a Priest and the Celebration of Corpus Christi. The students were given the opportunity to learn about Father Harry's role in the community and what his role involves when he is not taking Mass. The students asked many questions about the seven sacraments and learnt about how Father Harry first became a Priest. A highlight for the students was seeing the St. Kieran's Monstrance which the students have been learning about in class.
Thank you Father Harry for taking the time to speak to the students.
