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?

Reflect on the teachings of Jesus and identify the impact of the Word of God on your life and actions

 

Sacred People from the Old and New Testaments:

Moses, Sarah, Elizabeth, Paul, Peter, James, Martha, King David, Noah, Rachael, Joseph, Jacob, Abraham, Isaac, Rebecca.

Students research one of these characters to find out:

    • What significant event was this character involved in?
    • Was this in the old Testament or New Testament
    • Who were the other characters that were involved?
    • What choices did they have to make?
    • What were the consequences of these choices?
    • How did this situation affect his/her relationship with God?
    • What were the strengths and weaknesses of this character?
    • Would this character be admired in today’s world?

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!
