Celestial Cluster 02: Year 3, St Pauls Church in Wales School, Cardiff, Wales
Yesterday I made a second 'Celestial Cluster', this time with participants at the of the end of the age spectrum.
The session with them was more prescribed than with the making of the other 'Celestial Cluster' with older ladies. With this group I told the Tanabata story, had a group discussion about the story, watched some films of the story, made Japanese wishes which were hung on a tree ( a dead yukka lurking in a corridor of the school), the children researched facts about the real Milky Way on iPads, made sequential drawing of the Tanabata story, I gave them the 'Smell of Space' on smell sticks and we made the 'Milky Way' with lights together. I really enjoyed their wide eyed wonder and total honesty.
