Polkadots Junior Explorers Round 2
Round 2 of our Junior Explorer classes is about to come to an end this week with the children attending their very own DVD Premier event! Over the past 7 weeks the children have been Singing, Dancing, Learning and Playing like a Polkadot, as we learnt all about Chemical Change.
During each session the children are taught new singing skills and techniques so they can become more confident singers. They have also learnt the choreography for numerous Polkadots dances, but in particular they focused on learning the lyrics and moves to the Polkadots’ Science Seeker song “Mixing Stirring”. Each week the children were also able to engage in a different experiment which helped to develop their knowledge of what a Chemical Change is and what components are needed to create one. We made bread, salt dough, hokey pokey, and spent time just experimenting with various ingredients.
All of these activities have been filmed over the 7 weeks and all culminated last week for video week, where the children were able to make their very own music video to “Mixing Stirring”. They got all dressed up like Crazy Polkadot Scientists and did a fabulous job putting all they had learnt into action to make an awesome music video. This week they will get to celebrate and watch their efforts at the Junior Explorers Premier. Each of the children have been able to invite a special guest along and each will take home their very own copy of the Junior Explorers Journey on DVD to have as a keepsake and to share with their rest of their family and friends.
I have been very lucky to be the teacher of this awesome group of children and have loved watching their desire to learn and explore, and their confidence to sing and dance grow over the 7 weeks. Thanks everyone for being such an awesome group.
