I hope your week 1 learning went well at home. I loved seeing your writing and news! Here are this week's learning at home ideas. Remember there are lots more ideas on the At Home Learning page.
The Beginning (Genesis 1:1-5, 14-18)
Big Question - Who made the World?
This Week - God made the Sun, Moon and Stars
MV - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 - see if your child can make up some actions to go with the verse. Send in a video if you like, and I can add for the other children to see.
Object Lesson - Take some time one evening to look outside with your child at the stars and moon. Ask them to see if they can count all the starts. Comment on how cool the night-time is. Go outside during the day and feel the warmth of the sun and look at the shadow that it makes on the group. Talk about what the sun does, for example, it provides light and heat and makes plants grow. Thank God for the day and the night, the sun, moon and stars.
Crafts/activities: Using whatever craft materials you have at home make a starry mobile that can hang somewhere in your house as a reminder this week.
Game: Sun, moon and stars - play like musical statues, but instead of freezing when the music stops call out 'sun' (drop to the floor in a ball), 'moon' (bend with arms stretched like a crescent moon) or 'stars' (stand with feet apart and arms stretched like doing a star jump).
Beginners Bible Story - focusing on the part of the story where God created the sun, moon and stars.
