Today was our local themed group session. The children chose the theme themselves a few months ago and the theme was Gods.
It was a fairly quiet session (August usually is) with just 6 families with 12 children in all, age range 1 to 14.
It was beautiful day for a change, so the kids all spent a lot of time outdoors playing a very complicated role play game that involved super powers. It's great to hear a wide age range of children negotiating and building characters and plot together, loudly and happily I might add. No arguments or tears. Bliss!
There were Spirit cards to look at, colouring pages of Egyptian gods, a couple of Roman Gods minibooks left over from a previous session and a story about the Hindu gods.
They also looked at the names of the days of the week...
...fictional gods, the focus being on Arnold Bros (est 1905) from Truckers: The First Book of the Nomes by Terry Pratchett...
...ancient local gods and making your own god statue...
...and Green man mask making.
