Seth is reading very clearly. He is a great reader.
Everyone stands ready to start. We look carefully at the words on the ActivBoard.
Aroha Syndicate love to sing action songs. We are praising God.
Mrs B plays the guitar beautifully to help us keep in tune and on time.
Our songs tell about following Jesus and believing in God. They make us smile!
We are all part of a team and we all do our best.
It is important that we are sure we know all the words to our songs. It is part of our Reading for the day.
Gemma has been learning her words every night at home. We can tell….
As we read our prayers we use expression to show the meaning of the reading.
One of our songs has three students leading in solos. We sing each verse after them.
“Follow Me’ is one of our favourite songs. Thank you for helping us learn the words at home!
We can all read the words on the ActivBoard. Mrs Lucre changes the pages on the PowerPoint for us.
Even our very new students in Room 1a are learning all the words. It is fun getting ready for our Mass.
The Aroha Syndicate will be leading our Parish Mass this Friday 16th May at 9am.
Everyone has a part to play in the Mass. Most of us are singing the songs together and say the responses. Some of us have special jobs to do. We had auditions for special tasks. Anyone could try out. We thought carefully:
Did we want to sing a solo?
Maybe we would like to sing to lead the responses?
Would I enjoy reading from the Bible?
Or maybe I should try saying a prayer?
We spread out the responsibilities between as many students as possible.
Mum and Dad please talk to us about appropriate behaviour in Church? Our teachers have already talked to us about it and would appreciate your support.
We are learning to:
Sit quietly between songs.
Listen carefully to prayers, readings and Father’s homily.
Join in all responses and songs – especially the actions.
Stand straight, kneel tall and sit still as we focus on praising and worshipping God in Church through the Celebration of the Eucharist.
WE WOULD LOVE FOR ALL FAMILY AND WHANAU TO JOIN US ON FRIDAY – 16TH MAY 9AM…DO COME!
