We have been to “Mini Einsteins” from the beginning and as the “We are Mini” brand has been launched, I thought that it would be a good idea to do a bit of an Mini Einsteins update. If you want to read a somewhat “serious” experience of our first Mini Einsteins class, you are probably best reading this post (Mini Einsteins – Rainbow Factory)
** This class isn’t being run by the Rainbow Factory at the moment **
However, in a vain attempt to be creative, I thought that I would go all poetic and write about our story so far..
We started in June
going to our favourite science class
We learnt about solids, liquids
and even some gas
At first there was just us two,
and a helper with Professor Ellen
We learnt about vegetables, plants
and fruits such as melon
As the group grew,
so did our knowledge
Some of the topics took me
straight back to college
We learnt some long words,
and learnt to predict
We knew that the lesson plans
had been professionally picked
They learnt why things went up
and why things went down
They learnt what would float
and then what would drown
The classes were different
in fact they are unique
I think I’m turning Heidi
into a big science geek!
We have used household items
to blow up balloons
We have used vibrations
to play nifty tunes
We have tested our senses,
our taste, hearing and sight
The children were blindfolded
to see if they could still write
Joining the class was one of
the best things we’ve done
So why don’t you come along
and join in the fun!
While the post is slightly “jokey” – the class is seriously, seriously good, especially if you are wanting to challenge your child a bit and get them interested in science and generally learning. On the back of this, we have really explored both the activities and sought out some good science museums.
It is pitched at the right level for a to 5 year olds (there is an older class as well) and last for an hour, which is more than enough! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and you never know, you might learn a thing or two as well!!
