We have come to the topic of "Famous People" from all walks of life and all over the world. It provides opportunity for children to learn that "famous people" were ordinary and real people; who had been through difficult journeys before achieving extraordinary accomplishments. This helps to expand on children's thinking and influence how they react to their environment. The introduction of famous people can be an inspiration to our children and encourages them on their self-discovery.
Let's take a look at what the children have been exploring for this week.
Our toddlers were learning about Thomas Edison and his great invention of light bulb. They created their own light bulb crafts, before role-playing as little young inventors.
The children also learnt to express their dreams, through conventional writing, after being inspired by Nick Vujicic.
As they learnt to appreciate the famous art pieces by Vincent Van Gogh, children were tasked to re-create his work of "The Starry Night", by exploring on a variety of different art media provided.
On the other hand, the older children were learning about the greatest and most influential artist of the 20th century, named Pablo Picasso. They were engaged in the creation of Cubism art.
As this week coincides with our National Day, the children have also recreated model of Singapore to extend on their learning.
Upon completion, children took turns to express their thoughts on the finished product. They also shared about their love for the Nation.
It has been a wonderful week. Hope you had a great one too! Stay tuned. 💗
