Psalm Thursday

Good afternoon,

This afternoon's R.E. lesson was about praising God through psalms. So we made our own.




We also discussed another reason why it having oceans of water is important to Earth.


This may help jog the memory.

Bye for now,

Mr Grant

Oh yes, and please remember your art shirts for tomorrow, Mrs Clapp has plans to be messy.

And one more thing - I kinda forgot to hand out some notices. They'll be on the yellow table in the morning.

Kitty Cat Wednesday

Good afternoon,

This afternoon finished with a visit from Harry's latest family members.





Can anyone say "Awww..."

We started the day with, well...with Maths, Writing and the start of Reading, but, subsequent to that, a touch of fitness.



In the afternoon we discussed where Earth gets most of its oxygen from.



Bye for now,

Mr Grant

Gather Together Tuesday

Good afternoon,

And what a lovely afternoon it is.

This afternoon, subsequent to our morning fitness...



...and J Team Singing...


...Room 2 (or those of us who weren't at PMP) went outside for our weekly P.E. lesson.


Passing the ball around the body - easy. Catching a ball that's been bounced towards you...not so much!

Good evening,

Mr Grant

Friday Funday

Good afternoon,

The children had a fantastic day today, all courtesy of Mrs O'Niel, Mrs Clapp and Mrs Stopforth coming in to, well, build the world!


Together, Room 2 even managed to find and open The Hat to pick who Galoop is having the weekend at.


'Twas a pitty I hadn't updated it with the names of the current class!

Have a great weekend,

Mr Grant

Two Little Dogs

Good afternoon,

Again,

Again,

Here is the second recording of the day - White Reading Group reading Two Little Dogs.



Again, very amusing listening to (and then editing out) what they are saying to each other between the pages!

Mr Grant

What A Mess

Good afternoon,

Again,

I've just finished editing Green Group's first recording What A Mess.



It is funny listening to them in between their reading!

Mr Grant

Thursday...Umm...Thursday...

Good afternoon,

I couldn't think of any clever title for today. 'Twas, well, a fairly standard Thursday. 'Cept for the earthquake drill.



This afternoon we started classifying the planets according to temperature and atmosphere.











Mrs O'Neil will be running the show tomorrow as I will be taking another batch of Running Records.

Mrs Clapp will also be in the room after morning tea making a huge mess!

Bye for now,

Mr Grant

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3...

Good afternoon,

Mr Atherton has just shown me a new pod casting site where I can store all of the audio files that I was storing on the Room 2 Listening Post Page. Most of those files have been blocked here at school, so...

Another Wet Wednesday

Good afternoon,

'Twas raining on and off this morning, so we had some Jump Jam 'stead of running...




...and an inside lunch (though they played outside afterwards).


After lunch we discussed again the Our Father prayer.



The Our Father Prayer is...
  • Talking to God

  • Behave on Earth like you would in Heaven

  • Forgive others like God forgave us

Take note, there will be test later on.

We also talked about the atmospheres on Mars and Jupiter.



Bye for now,

Mr Grant

Who's This Then?

Few Photos Monday

Good afternoon,

Another start to a busy week. So much so, that I forgot to take any photos other than these...



...as we did Jump Jam next door!

Which is a pity really, as we did a pretty cool experiment...


Cool Experiments:
How To Put Out A Candle Without Blowing It

...to explain why we can't live on Venus.




All good fun!

Bye for now,

Good afternoon,

This afternoon we identified one reason we live on Earth and not another planet on the Solar System.


To figure this out, we went outside and created a toilet paper solar system.





To consolidate this learning we then popped back inside to the interactive whiteboard.


Prior to this we discussed that God loves us no matter what we do...


...subsequent to some daily fitness.



Have a blessed, relaxing and safe weekend,

Mr Grant
