The Birds


What do you think the video tells us?  Does it have a message? If so, what is the message?

Who are the mean ones?  Why are they mean?  Are any of the small birds worse than others?

Is there a moral to the story?  Could we give the story a new title?

Stand in My Shoes – Developing Our Empathy


Today for our circle time WALT (We Are Learning To develop our empathy). First, our teacher showed us some funny and fancy shoes and asked us how we would feel wearing someone else’s shoes. We listened to the story ‘Stand in My Shoes’ by  Bob Sornson that taught us about empathy and showed us many ways to show empathy. We then discussed different situations and identified the feelings people might feel (using emoticons/emojis) and then we came up with solutions of what we could do to show empathy. Lastly, we got to try on some of the shoes and wear them during recess and class time. Today was even more special because during our circle time we had Mrs Russell and some special visitors from St John Vianney’s in Parkdale stop by. Thanks to Mrs Russell, Natasha, Kerry, Fleur and Shane for coming to share our circle time with us!

What did you learn about EMPATHY?  How did it feel when you tried on or wore someone else’s shoes? How can you show empathy at home? At school? To someone you don’t know?

3/4M’s Awesome Assembly


Last week our class presented our learning since we started school this year. We sang and danced to a song Umbrella by Rihanna and Jay-Z that shows SEL and we talked about our first week of swimming, our goals for our Bright Future and demonstrated Where we are in Australia for our Geography Inquiry Topic. Well Done 3/4 Murphy! So proud of you all for your terrific assembly! 🙂 Stay tuned for a video of our assembly performance!




In our class we are learning about SEL (social and emotional learning). We talked about people we think possess SEL qualities like Dora the Explorer, Angelina Jolie and Ellen. We said they were confident, risk-takers, set goals, don’t give up, friendly, kind, caring, responsible and positive. We also sang a song that has to do with SEL. Below is the song. How is the song related to SEL?

At the beginning of our year we set a goal to read 1000 books before the end of the year and this week we already reached our goal and we currently have read 1081 books! We are so pleased with our achievement that we are celebrating by having a pizza party next week!

Here are a few photos of our STAR READERS that read the most books in our class. And our top reader of the term Chels! WELL DONE 3/4M! AMAZING EFFORT and now…our goal is to try and read 10,000 books by December,… some of our Mathematical wizards figured out that with 27 students in our class  means we need to read approximately 12 books a week until the end of December!   Our response…

Digital Narrative- Sid the Seed


We are learning about the text type NARRATIVES in class at the moment. And we have been looking at how each narrative has a title, setting, characters, a problem and a solution. What was one of the problems in the story? How was the problem resolved? In the story Sid is lacking some SEL skills that we have been talking about as a part of Wellbeing. What SEL characteristic to Sid develop at the end of the story?
