St. Joseph's School School Otahuhu


Room 5

Welcome to Room 5

We are having a great year in room 5. 

At the end of term two, we created some beautiful crosses using tissue paper and handmade crosses that Mrs Kulik had prepared for us. It was fun picking different colors that go together to put in our cross! It was a a nice calming activity which also gave us an opportunity to meditate and talk to God. 

With gratitude being St Joseph's focus for the year, we have created our own gratitude tree. We wrote all the things that we are grateful for in our lives. 

We have been focusing on prayer. We learnt how to write prayers of the faithful. We split into groups and wrote down some prayers of the faithful and shared these with the class during a special dedicated prayer time. 

We are learning about South Sudan and how the people of South Sudan live. This has made us realise how much we have to be thankful for. We are especially grateful for having a safe country to live in with our own clean, warm, loving homes. We looked at how tough life can be for people who are having to live in refugee camps. In groups we designed our own refugee camps that we would make for the South Sudanese people. We take time everyday to pray for many people around the world who are living in difficult conditions.
