On Monday, Michael Mangan came to our school to perform two concerts for us. He lives in Brisbane and he writes and sings songs about our faith in God. He played guitar along with singing. He told us he also plays piano. His songs taught us about the different ways of praising God. After he sang each song, he told us what he thinks of the meanings of his songs and made us think of how we can make our relationship with God stronger. He showed us some actions to some of his songs that made us want to sing along. One of his latest albums came out last year, but still rock our world this year as he taught us each one. We all had lots of fun with him, rocking out and praising softly.
The 5/6 M and M Gallery Viewing Team did a wonderful job sharing all our Term 1 learning with our school community. It was great to have our blog to showcase some of the great work we have done during the term and the ‘Harlem Shuffle‘ was a BIG hit with all the visitors to our room. We also enjoyed going around to some of the other classes and seeing what they have been learning about. Here are some photos of our team in action – well done team!
Our class excitedly line up at the door, holding our inspirational signs and thinking about what might happen when others see our posters. As we start to walk down the stairs towards the door, we are all pretty nervous. Once we get out the door, we raise our signs, and everyone sees them. I can see the students reactions and most of them are probably thinking, ”What are they doing?”, ”Why are the doing that?” and ”This is so weird and unusual!”. Once we start to walk up the stairs towards the school opening, we can see the smiles on all the parents faces and I’m sure that the whole class feel heartwarmed. We wave at any cars going past and they wave back and smile, and sometimes they even honk! I observe the way that all the car honks sound different. When a car honks, we all cheer. It was such a great feeling when someone waved, gave a thumbs up, honked, or even just smiled at our posters. It made us feel successful and satisfied. I think this whole experience has helped our community by cheering people up and giving them positive quotes to think about. This was a very fun and joyful experience. I hope to do it again in the future.
