Forgotten From Thursday

Good afternoon,

I was meaning to post these on Thursday, but I forgot.

Specifically, Kahurangi reading group created a digital storyboard (of sorts) for their text Peter and the Wolf. Complete with masks!

And in the afternoon we had a very insightful discussion about how the Church is a sign of God in the world.

The conversation went something like this...
Mr Grant - "What is a sign?"
Ryan - "A sign tells you what you need to know."
Mr Grant - "What do people need to know?"
Saul - "That God is love."
Mr Grant - "But how do you know [that God is love]?"
Room 2 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16"
And that, in a nutshell, is the mission of the Church.

What clever wee children!

Today I Saw A Little...Friday

Good afternoon,

We kicked off today with a touch of poetry, both read...

...and written.

Then onto the main event - the shared lunch. The only evidence of which that I managed to capture was this...

Thank you for all of the food, there was heaps!

Also, as part of his campaign promises, our class leader brought along The Princess Bride to share over lunch. And at TRUMP time.

And a good time was had by all.

Happy Fathers Day...for next weekend...

Election Thursday

Good afternoon,

Well, we had our election for our Room 2 leader and representative for the position of Rutherford Team Leader, and the winner, as per his election promises... "organising" a shared lunch for tomorrow. And I quote...

Shared lunch Friday lunch in Room 2. You need to bring muffins and popcorn, chips & stuff.

So, there you go. Please provide a plate of shared food for a class lunch tomorrow. No lollies or chocolate, please. He didn't state it, but I'm sure all parents would be more than welcome to join us!

Further to our electioneering, our next goal is to convince the rest of the Rutherford team that our man is the man for the job for Rutherford team leader.

We started coming up with some ideas for an election promise or two this afternoon.

We may need some parental assistance with some of these!

Next step is to vote! Election day is tomorrow. Good luck one and all!
