MOSES

Moses’ story is found in Exodus. He was a very important person in the Bible for both Jewish and Christian traditions.

Watch the story of Moses

What was the significance of Moses?

What did he do to help his people?

Why do you think he was chosen?

 

 

Choose one of the Gospels and read some of the scriptures about the teachings of Jesus. Read the stories that you can relate to in your own life and present a modern day interpretation.

  • Jesus’ miracles and teachings (Mt 4–25; Mk 1–13; Lk 4–19:27; Jn 2–17)

Once you have chosen your stories try to make connections by-

  • Text to text
  • Text to Self
  • Text to World

What are some of the learnings Jesus wanted for his community?

How can you relate to the teachings today? Give some examples.

What connections can you make to your own experiences, feelings and beliefs?

STEPS TO WRITING SUCCESS

July29

Seven Steps to Story Writing Success by: Jen Mcveity

Step 1: Plan For Success

(Start with a bang, slowly build up the tension and end on a real high point)

Start where the action is, with a bang
Plot Development
Gradually build up the tension
End on a real high point

Step 2: Sizzling Starts

Tip: Start where the action is. Not at the beginning of the day where nothing is happening. Begin right in the middle of the action to hook your readers.
Step 3: Tightening Tension

Tip: Visualise the scene in your mind. Use the five senses as a guide – What did you See, Hear, Smell, Touch, Taste. Start strong, but save your best arguments and persuasive techniques for near the end.
Step 4: Dynamic Dialogue

Top Tip: Include quotations from experts, real words from a victim, concise sayings from famous people. Get rid of the boring bits.
Step 5: Show Don’t Tell

Tip: If I tell you I am generous, do you believe me??? No way. But if I buy all 20 raffle tickets to help cancer research, are you more convinced? Actions really do speak louder than words.
Step 6: Ban the Boring Bits

Tip: Ban all mention of bus or car trips, breakfasts and beds. (Unless of course you want something mysterious to happen to one of your characters while they are eating breakfast in bed on a train!!)
Step 7: Exciting Endings

Tip: First lines and last lines are what people remember the most. Be powerful in order to persuade

SNAPSHOT OF THE EARN AND LEARN PROGRAM

July22

This term the students are involved in a financial awareness program called Earn and Learn developed by Rob Vingerhoets. Through this program students operate in a way similar to a small town or community. They develop vocabulary (related to money), letter writing skills, prepare for an interview, write a resume, create advertisements (posters) work in a team and learn to negotiate.

The students receive a base weekly payment for the work they complete. Students who undertake Positions of Responsibility (P.O.R) within the classroom receive additional payments. Responsibilities might include taking the lunch orders to the canteen, cleaning the class library, turning on and off the lights when we enter and leave our room, distributing newsletters and delivering messages, attending the phone and so on. 

 

Students have the opportunity to sit where they want and this would determine the rent they pay. They have to document their income and expenditure through a spreadsheet and work in teams to operate their business. Just like in the real world, students encounter fines for not doing homework. Students also pay tax through the money they earn, make payment towards their utility bills (water, gas and electricity), take out insurance policies against H.W (forgetting their homework), contribute to superannuation and make weekly purchases.

Students operate their businesses within the classroom on Market Day and have the opportunity to visit market day held in other classes.

Working With Robots

June29

INTRODUCTION TO LEGO WEDO 2 (ROBOTS) IN THE CLASSROOM:

The students identified how robots do monotonous and repetitive work.
They watched the Youtube clip Voyager to Mars. This gave them an idea of how robots operate in the real world. Through this video students were able to see how NASA is using robots for upcoming missions.
The students used coding skills to operate their robot.
Through this activity students were able to race their robot with other robots.
They worked in groups of 3, to create their robot and took turns to complete this task.
When working in a team they used collaborative skills.

Children had a blast!

THE CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA

June8

The Catholic Church began in Australia with the arrival of the First Fleet in  1788. Of the 1044 convicts who arrived, 316 were Catholics. For some years there
were no priests or religious in the settlement, so the laity assumed  responsibility for keeping the faith alive. 

Fr Dixon, a convict, celebrated the first Mass in Australia on May 15, 1803  after being pardoned and permitted to say Mass and celebrate baptisms and marriages. 

In 1820 Father John Therry and Fr Philip Conolly arrived in Australia as the first official priests to minister to Catholics in the colony. 

Father Therry dedicated the first Catholic Church in the Colony to Our Lady  Help of Christians. 

In 1835 John Bede Polding was appointed as Australia‟s first Catholic bishop.  He set out to establish a Benedictine Monastery, to provide efficient
administrators to set up dioceses and respond to the pastoral needs of the  community.

The Pope, in consultation, appoints bishops to lead dioceses. Bishops succeed  the apostles through the Holy Spirit who is given to them. They are the
constituted pastors in the Church and are to be teachers of doctrine and the  priests of sacred worship
(Code of Canon Law, #372) 

The pastor leads the parish community in the name of the bishop by:  
– ensuring that the Word of God is proclaimed; 
– fostering works which promote the Spirit of the gospel; 
– caring for the Catholic education of children and young people; 
– bringing the Gospel message to those who have given up religious practice; 
  – ensuring the Blessed Eucharist is the centre of the parish assembly of the faithful; 
– encouraging all to pray and to take a lively and active part in sacred  liturgy  (Code of Canon Law #528)

 In 1838 the Sisters of Charity were the first religious order from overseas  to be invited to set up communities to work with the Catholic people. Caroline  Chisholm also arrived in this year. She is well known in our history for her  work with the immigrant poor and wayward girls.

Through the 1800s local Religious Orders were established in Australia to  respond to the pastoral needs of the community. During this time, many religious  congregations from overseas established foundations to help the Church‟s work. 
 

Catholic schools in Australia were established and largely staffed by lay  people until the Public Institution Act in 1880. With government assistance  withdrawn, the Church had to establish its own Catholic education system. Religious sisters and brothers  were encouraged to come to Australia to help staff the schools and Australian  Catholics had to support the schools financially.

The Catholic Church community consists of people from many countries  throughout the world.

ENDANGERED ANIMALS IN THEIR HABITAT

June3

 

This term we have been studying about endangered animals and the importance of protecting and preserving their habitat.

Having been on camp students saw the animals in their natural habitat. Keeping this in mind they sketched an animal of their choice and used paint to hi-light special features of the animals and the environment.
