During Inquiry, we participated in a lesson called, ‘Exercising Our Funny Bones’. We spoke about the Habit of Mind, ‘Finding Humour’ which provided us with an opportunity to develop an understanding of the importance of humour in our lives. People with a sense of humour are more likely to develop resilience as well as creative and lateral problem solving abilities. Having a sense of humour will also help us cope when our needs or wants are not being met. The Habit of Mind, ‘Finding Humour’ encourages people to laugh a little as laughing increases your oxygen intake and is good for you. It asks us to appreciate other’s humour and to try and laugh at ourselves.
As part of this lesson we were given a question or an answer to a joke. We had to move around the room and find someone who completed out joke. Some of the jokes were terrible and some of them were quite funny, we have shared a few below.
Why are basketball players never asked for dinner? Because they’re always dribbling!
Why do we put candles on top of a birthday cake? Because it’s too hard to put them on the bottom!
What game do ants play with elephants? Squash!
Why don’t bananas like getting sun burnt? They peel.

Students don’t forget your plate photo for next week!
We are having our own Science week here at St Emilie’s in week 8. The 2014 topic is ‘Science Feeding the World’. Both Health and Science will be doing extra activities with the students in week 8. Mr Davis will be doing an activity with year 5 about where our food is sourced from. Each year 5 student is to bring to school a photograph of their evening meal. So sometime between now and week 8 choose one of your favourite dinners, take a photograph of it and then print it out ready to bring to school. The students are not required to bring their photos until week 8.
Mrs Cogger and Mr Davis
