Exploring Colours, Shadow and Patterns.

Lots of great learning happened in Preschool this week. The students are making connections between light and dark. How light can reflect and make rainbows and that shadows can move and change.

Do you remember what the Oak students discovered on the light wall last week? During our third week, lots of students were curious about seeing colours by adding transparent colourful objects on the projector.  They explored colourful and dark objects on the wall by going on a treasure hunt around the classroom. How can you reflect on your science discoveries? Some of the students started to draw their shadow objects on the paper and were reflective about them. What will happen next, you will find out next Friday!

The Maple children had so much fun watching, discussing and building up their explorations based on two great movies they have watched! Here are links to these movies and you can watch them together with your children during the weekend.
This Wednesday was the sunniest day of the week, and children found the rainbow on the light table! Later we did an experiment and tried to catch the rainbow with water and mirror. Ask the children if we succeed in it?
Another big part of our explorations were patterns. The children searched for them everywhere: in bracelets and necklaces they were making, during line up, and while singing our greeting song in the morning!

This week we had fun exploring shadows. The Preschool two age students found that you could move the shadows with light. They could make the shadows bigger and smaller. The preschool one students and toddlers found that you can make the light of a flashlight go bigger and smaller. They also found that if the light is behind you, your shadow goes on the wall.

In art with Ms Valda, we made light and dark pictures. We worked on our cutting skills and had lots of fun cutting different shapes.
