Welcome to Kennick Class!
Today we learnt about Christingles ; we sang Away in a Manger and understood why Christians celebrate Christmas. We found out about the symbols that the different parts a Christingle represents and made our own. We even lit them and listened to a special prayer.
The children made clay Diva pots a few weeks ago but decorated them today. They used a base coat then did finer detail using another colour and made sure it was a Rangoli style pattern that they practised on paper earlier in the week. They look amazing and very colourful!!
Willow Lantern Making
The children used willow, sticky tape and tissue paper to make lanterns in small groups. They worked together as a team to carefully make the square base shape, then add upright sticks. Finally adding tissue paper and lots of glue!!! It was a messy but fun time!
This week in Kennick Class we have been using google maps to look at the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We were all amazed by how big the planet is!! How many continents and oceans can you spot in the map below?
