January 11th – 15th

What a great few days we had last week after our Christmas break – the children were all full of energy and ready to get back into learning mode! This week at The Children’s House we will be starting to learn about the beginning of the universe with the morning classes, and doing an experiment to demonstrate the Big Bang almost 14 million years ago, and we will be talking about how we are all made of stardust! Later in the week the children will be making their own pictures of the Big Bang, we will do some philosophising and have a discussion about what everyone imagines the world might have been like in the very beginning….then we will also be doing some yoga, and finally some drama – moving to music with different coloured ribbons to represent all the particles swirling about after the Big Bang. The afternoon classes will be learning about winter – the cold weather, short days and long nights, clothes we wear in the winter – and making snowy pictures!

93 Percent Stardust

We have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins,
Carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains,
93 percent stardust, with souls made of flames,
We are all just stars that have people names.
