THE SUN CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!
Drawing is the language of young children and we looked closely at Freda the Filled Neck Lizard to decide on how to put the shapes of her body parts together in our drawings of her.
Freda was a very patient still life model and enjoyed all the extra attention.
You can see her and our illustrations on our classroom windows at OPEN NIGHT !!!
Thank you to our families for helping us to make the big coloured ice blocks we needed to build our iceberg at Kindy !
It was a slippery job to place the blocks together and as the day progressed the ice melted into interesting shapes.
By the end of the day there wasn’t much left but a few ice chunks and a wet garden bed.
The power of the sun had melted the big ice blocks !!! Wow!
We created an artwork using small coloured ice blocks which we placed onto a large canvas and sprinkled with salt.
Over the day the ice melted into coloured pools of water which dried to leave some lovely designs on our canvas.
We think the design looked like people…or ice cream…or fingers… or water…
People can use the Power of the Sun to help them in their daily life.
We filled a Solar Shower with cold water and left it in the sun all day.
In the afternoon we brought the shower inside, turned it on and felt the temperature of the water.
It had changed from cold to warm.The energy in the sunshine had warmed the water!!!
We also found an alternative to candle light when the power goes off.
We put Solar Lights outside in the sunshine for a whole day. The sun’s energy powers the solar cells and hey presto- we had lights!!!
You can’t see the lights working during the daylight so we had to make it dark by putting the lights in a box with a lid.
How pretty they look!!!
JESUS AS TEACHER
As the story of Jesus’ life unfolds, we have learned about Jesus as a teacher.
Jesus loved to teach about God’s love and He called the disciples to help Him do this.
We have used our Godly Play props to retell the stories of Jesus Blessing the Children and Jesus Calming the Storm. These stories help us to learn about how God loves us and wants to take care of each one of us.
Jesus wants us to be teachers too through our loving behaviour towards others.
We look forward to seeing you at OPEN NIGHT THIS WEDNESDAY – you are free to drop in between 4.00pm – 6.00pm to share these and many other learning opportunities in Kindy Blue!!!
