Today in Little Stars we walked up to the COLA. The COLA is an outside undercover basketball court. This is the place where we will be having our Nativity Christmas Carols Night!
Today we also joined with the Reception students again to sing our two Christmas songs in the Recpetion/Year 1 classroom.
We started talking about the Christmas Story today in group time. We talked about how our school is called ‘Nativity’ because of this Christmas Story. We talked about the characters in the story, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, angels, shepherds, wise men and the animals. We talked about what a ‘stable’ was and started making out ‘Nativity Scene’ craft by using pop-sticks to make the stable.
Today in Little Stars we talked about Remembrance Day.
We looked at the clock and it was 11 o’clock. We also talked about how today was November the 11th and about how we live in a country called Australia.
We watched a clip on Youtube about what happened many years ago at 11 o’clock on November the 11th and how every year we stop and remember the soldiers who fought for Australia in the wars so that our country can be a safe and peaceful place to live.
We made our own poppies out of paper and some of us wore them home.
Today in Little Stars we joined with the current Receptions to begin to learn our 2 Christmas songs for the Nativity Carols Night. We liked going into the Reception classroom and sitting next to some of the Reception children and also seeing some of the current Reception teachers again this week.
We have been talking about how we will be ‘big’ kids when we come to school next year. Being a ‘big’ kid means that we do somethings for ourselves like packing and unpacking our bags. Today in group time we talked about the things we might pack in our school bag when we come to school and then practiced our cutting and gluing skills to cut out pictures of a hat, drink bottle, lunchbox and a reader and glued them on a school bag picture.
Today in Little Stars we went with Mrs Black and we visited the Church.
When we come to school we will go to Church with our class.
Some of us have been to Church with our families or friends.
Some of the things we saw in the Church were the chairs, the statue of Jesus, the big cross and the Baptismal Font where the water goes on the baby’s head at a Baptism.
Welcome back to Little Stars for Term 4!
Today in Little Stars we visited the Reception/1 classrooms and the current Reception students. We listened to a story all together and met two teachers who work at Nativity called ‘Mrs King’ and ‘Mrs Quinn’. We will visit the Receptions and some of the Nativity teachers each week as a part of our transition program this term.
Today in Little Star’s we visited the St Joseph’s Building. We saw the ‘big’ kids learning in their classrooms and we also saw the Japanese Room. When we come to school we will have Japanese lessons each week.
Next week we are looking forward to have our Teddy Bear’s Picnic to celebrate the end of Term 3!
Today when we went on our ‘tour’ around the Campus, we visited the canteen. We meet Maggie who works in the canteen and we learnt about how to line up if we would like to buy something. Maggie showed us a green ‘lunch order box’ which is where we put our lunch order bags if we have a lunch order when we come to school.
In group time today we talked about spiders. We made a class spider web using wool which was part of a game where we were learning to say other people’s names. We also practiced our counting skills when we made our own spider webs using a paper plate and some wool, and we counted the correct number of spiders on our web.
