The Little Disciples group will be packed with activities designed to heighten literacy awareness, number sense, knowledge of Biblical principles and what it means to walk in relationship with Jesus while learning, playing and in fellowship with others. The class will be combined with the grade 1 class for a portion of the morning, Physical Education, and Music. Vicki Bjornsen will be joined by Mya Swedburg in the morning while the class is combined and a combined lunch. For a portion of the day, the grade 1 students will participate in a literature/art class with Mrs. Squire. She will explore stories through arts and crafts. Movement and music classes will center on joyful rhythmic activities and worship.
(For grades 2 and 3.)
In this class there will be a focus on different materials and techniques to create 2D and 3D art work. Colour theory, shape and balancing composition will be taught. We will be working on using the students creativity and developing their skills to create what they imagine. There will also be a tie over into drama as the students will have an opportunity to create a mask and learn to use it in class.
(For grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.)
We are excited to offer Digital Photography to middle school and high school students. Ken Caird has been teaching this course in a local church and will be joining us this semester. Please note: This course requires a digital camera. Please call if you have questions or concerns. Digital photography and working with images are excellent skills to have for presentations and web design.
(For grades 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.)
We are excited to have Lynn Baron join our Community! She has instructed students in Art in high schools and at Ambrose University! Here is Lynn’s description of her plans:
By teaching kids how to draw in a purposeful way, students will gain confidence each time they approach drawing. With practice, students will see their drawing ability improve. Good drawing skills are the foundation for success in all other visual art applications.
By combining observational skills with specific drawing techniques, students will learn to individually interpret what they see. Their drawing skills will improve as they practice skills such as: sketching techniques, identifying basic shapes, proportion, sighting, value, light and depth, shadow, texture and pattern, composition, drawing from reference material versus drawing from life, and trying out different grades of pencils and other drawing materials.
(Grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.)
Students will be learning the foundations for drama with a focus on character development, story arcs and movement. The students will be given opportunity to pick their favourite bible stories and learn how to present them as part of a scene. This is a great way for students to memorize their favourite verses but also allowing the students to better understand them.
(For little disciples and grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.)
We are excited to have Mad Science return to our Community with some new exciting topics. Students will enjoy the hands-on activities and take-home projects that were so popular in the fall. Our younger students will explore Dinosaurs, Bugs, Science of Toys, Keep in Touch, Mmmm… Taste, and Walloping Weather. Older students will look more closely at the science behind Super Structures, Flight, Mad Machines, Radical Robots, Lights and Color, and Walloping Weather! It will be a whirlwind of fun!
