Here is a wordle of some key words that came to mind when we reflected

And here is our evaluation of the day:
How did we prepare for it?
- Making sandwiches
- Working together and team work
- Making special water
- Mums and a grandma came and helped with buttering and cutting
- We had stations so it would be fast to make sandwiches
- We listened to each other
- The parent helpers helped us put the sandwiches together
- We were sensible workers
- We lined up
- We liked working together
Who helped us make the food?
- Mums: Veronica (Madison’s grandma), Pauline (Jacob’s mum), Suzi (Madeline’s mum), Kim (Riley’s mum)
Did we use our knowledge of food that we found out through our inquiry?
- Yes, because after Forest Hill we made sandwiches, so we used our knowledge of that to do the parish Lunch
Do we think the guests enjoyed their lunch?
- Definitely, because they said so and there was lots of clapping
What would we do again?
- Using healthy food
- Do entertainment again
- Use foods from the vegie patch
- Keep making sandwiches
What would we change about the day?
- Perform a song from another year
- Make a different type of drink

- Put different things in the sandwiches
- Don’t put butter in the bread

  1. What a great job all the Juniors did today - a great way to show the community what you have been learning this term. I am sure the parishioners really enjoyed themselves. I hope that you did too. I was very pleased to have helped in a small way and to be a part of another wonderful experience you are given at school. Congratulations to all 3 classes and teachers.

  2. Well Done Juniors - wonderful reflections on a fantastic day. Enjoy your holidays - you to Michelle.

  3. I loved helping prepare the tremendous lunch that the juniors made for the parishioners. I feel that it would have been a highlight of the week for many of our elderly citizens. I was proud of the way everyone worked together as a team. You all demonstrated, through action, what you have been learning this term. Fantastic effort students and teachers.
