We have had a very busy week in Prep. Prep V and Prep K came together to blow bubbles on the hill. We all made a big circle and tried to blow as many bubbles as we could. We had so much fun! Bubbles make us very happy.
We watched a beautiful short film called ‘Bubbles‘ from the Literacy Shed by Gabriela Zapata. We noticed that when the little girl was sad the music was quiet and the colours of the sky were dark. When the little girl found the bottle of bubbles the music became happy and the colours around the little girl were bright. After her adventure the little girl shared her happiness with someone else.
We had a great discussion about everything that we saw and we thought about where we find happiness – what makes us happy? Then it was time to write and we painted our happy places.
