Good Morning Song
In the morning I arise
To greet the bright and bound-less skies
Dark of night has fled away
We greet the bright new day
Good morning morning, morning
We greet the bright new day
Good morning morning, morning
We greet the bright new day

Verse for taking the roll
I awaken every morning
To the glory of the sun
And the sunlight touches me
And the hearts of everyone
And I lift up my heart
To the glory of the sun
I awaken every morning
To the people that I know
And I see in their eyes
All the love and care they show
And I hold in my heart
All the people that I know 

End of Morning Circle 
Early morning waking, as the dawn is breaking
Shines the golden sun
The day has now begun
Arise, arise, arise

Before Main Lesson Verse
The sun with loving light
Makes bright for me each day
The soul with spirit power
Gives strength unto my limbs
In sunlight shining clear
I reverence of God
The strength of human kind
That thou so graciously
Has planted in my soul
That I with all my might
May love to work and learn
From thee comes light and strength,
To thee rise love and thanks.

 

Grace (morning tea)
The world is good to me
And so I thank the world
For giving me the things I need
The sun, the rain and the apple seed
Oh the world is good to me

End of morning tea (going out to play)
Guarded from harm
Cared for by angels
Here stand we
Loving and strong
Truthful and good

Grace (lunch)

For the golden corn
For the apples on the tree
For the golden butter and the honey for our tea
For fruits and nuts and berries that grow beside the way
For birds and beasts and flowers
We thank thee every day.

End of Lunch (going out to play)
The earth is firm beneath my feet
The sun shines bright above
Here I stand so straight and strong
All things to know and love

End of Day
My work today has ended
What I have learned will rest
When I have done my very best
Wisdom, strength and love will grow
And I shall bless all those I know

 

For getting the room a little quieter

A wise old owl
Lived in an oak
The more he saw
The less he spoke
The less he spoke
The more he heard
Why can’t we be
Like that wise old bird

Class One 

TERM 3 OVERVIEW

Term 3 is an exciting one for Class 1 as we introduce recorder.  Hopefully the recorder fairies will deliver the recorders (in the past this has happened only when all the recorder bags are finished) and we can hear the story about the magic tree that makes beautiful sounds when the wind blows through the trunk– and the various birds that nest in the tree.  We will be able to enjoy nature through our weekly walks, when we visit Mt Stirling for the ski program and as we add gardening to our weekly timetable this term.  The class will also be completing a main lesson on our local surroundings with winter as the theme, with plenty of opportunities to practise our newly discovered writing skills.  Our last main lesson of the term will be a maths main lesson with patterns as the focus – in counting, the four processes, and using things other than numbers (like shapes) to make patterns.
