>> Hand made Rosary Beads in Prep
To celebrate the month of October, the month of the Holy Rosary, the Prep students made their own mini clay Rosaries. A special mention to Jane O’Connor for her time, guidance and support in helping us make these beautiful keepsakes. The Preps were very excited and really loved making and praying with their special beads.
>> King Arthur visits Harkaway Hills
In Literature, the Year 5 girls have been reading King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table, a children’s adaptation of the classic Medieval saga. Our study includes comprehension questions and discussions about key themes and ideas in the novel, with a particular focus on Romance and Chivalry.
Additionally, this week the girls performed three short satirical skits, in which they were able to ‘send up’ or ‘tease’ some of the dramatic elements of the Romance genre. The girls wrote their own scripts, organised their costumes and performed for their classmates. The spirit of cooperation and joy with which they went about this was a delight to behold. Their final performances demonstrated creativity, originality, wit, as well as impressive swordsmanship and very dramatic death scenes. Well done, Year 5s.
