Today I watched Off Balance at the Bowling Club.The man was called Steve and the lady was Robyn. My favourite bit of the show was when they lifted Evie and made her fly. My least favourite part was NOTHING! It was all great. The best word to describe this show is SUPER!!!
Steve juggled with 12 balls!! I laughed my head off when Evie was flying to the song, ‘I Believe I Can Fly.’ In the act about fishing Steve swang Robin, who was the fish, around his body and neck.
In the fishing act the girl wore a fish hat which had a hole for her head. She pretended to be caught by the hook. It was hilarious!
Robin and Steve did some tricks. They had lots of equipment. I liked Evie going up higher. They put music on to go with it.
Evie volunteered to do a performance called , I Believe I Can Fly. It was scary. In fact it was really scary. I thought she would fall.
There was a fishing performance. Steve pretended to throw a prawn into the crowd. In the fish dance Robyn wore a fish mask.
On Friday we celebrated a mass for the feast Day of St Columba. We learnt about his life and a time when the Columba made a poor choice. One day Columba was working in the library making a copy of the Gospels. He was copying someone else's work and pretended it was his own. When he got caught Columba lied to try and cover up what he had done. He harmed people and caused great sadness. Columba worked for thirty years in Scotland following this event, and many people learnt about God from him and became Christians. Columba spent a lot of time at Iona where he rested and prayed, and listen to God. Today Iona is a place of pilgrimage where Christians go when they want to rest and be close to God. Mrs Butler is going to spend time praying at Iona in the coming weeks. The children received a bookmark with a blessing by St Columba to share with their families.
We have been learning to sing “Head and Shoulders” in Japanese. We made body parts out of play doh and we labelled them.
