Sound of the Week 's'


Can you find anything around your house with the 's' sound in it? Post it if you do!!!

Our Kingdom Kid for September!

She's a honey and we absolutely love her! 

Congratulations Natalia!!! 

Natalia's certificate says...
"Kingdom Kids are growing kids. That is why Natalia is a Kingdom Kid for sure. She has always demonstrated our Cornerstone values, but she grows to be even more like Jesus over time. Natalia is kinder, humbler, more self-less, patient and positive than she was at the start of the year and she was pretty awesome at these things then! Being someone who wants to grow is a fairly rare thing. You are an inspiration Natalia."

We are God's Masterpiece!

"For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
This is our Term 3, Week 2 Memory Verse.
Another word for 'handiwork' is 'masterpiece'. A master piece is the best work an artist or master craftsman has ever made. It is the piece of art they are known best for.

Watch this video of things God created. It made us go, "WOW!" The real wow is that God sees us as the best out of all He has created!

God has not made us just to stand around and look good. He made us to do GOOD WORKS. The world is our canvas and we can colour it with kindness!


Our poem this week!

Noah's Lunch time Science Lesson and Kody's Model

These boys are super innovative!
video

As Noah was eating his cruskits and honey the other day and made a rather insightful connection. In this video Noah gives us an object lesson on tectonic plates. Sorry you might have to turn your head sideways but it was too good not to post.
I think you would make a terrific teacher Noah!!!!

Kody made a very cool model of the earths layers before school. It was totally his own idea. I can see the hot mantle layer under the earths crust when you open it up. 
Maybe you will be a scientist one day Kody!

Experimenting with God's Invisible Awesome Forces

Magnetism and Static Electricity
Don't you love it how science and God work hand in hand. We sure do!


All things were created by him. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can't be seen.
Colossians 1:16


We had loads of fun this week experimenting with some invisible awesome forces. On Friday, we tried the lot!

Magnets are super fun! Depending on the way they are flipped they repel or attract each other!


Wow Aiden how did you get that paperclip to defy gravity???

We made cans roll along the ground, raised hair, picked up paper snowflakes, moved straws with our hands, suspended paper clips in the air and even bent water. We did all of this without touching a single one of the things we moved. It's not magic. It's God's creation!
 Scientists experimenting and discovering everywhere!

June's Calendar Challenge!

Congratulations you clever people you!
