Lower school started sessions this week by listening to prayers and poems about gratitude. We discussed the things we had in our lives that we should be grateful for, and considered how we may sometimes forget just how blessed we are.
After this, children found a quiet spot in the wood and scribed something to show the things they were grateful for...some wrote their own poems and prayers and others made lists or drew pictures.
We tasked the children with taking their work home and showing it to parents / carers...then saying THANKYOU! What was your child grateful for?
We also had a letter from Flame...the munchkin population has hit 103, so he's recieved funding to construct a place of worship to the Munchkin Supreme Leader, Munchimus Maximus - he charged us with the build!
Some of the children therefore explored images of churches and shrines from various religions before designing and building something suitable for the munchkins.
Others undertook cooking, explored flowers or made maps.
In Upper School, we examined 10 sculptures and tried to interpret meaning - we were very mature and inquisitive here:
Following this, some cooked, made wooden sculptures, created and presented themed multi-media sculptures, made a munchkin shrine, rigged tarps, buried a baby blackbird, recreated the Great Fire of London or made a version of the London underground map!
