Creating the world!

June 2021 The Creation of the World!! Stage 3 are tackling the big topics this term! From investigations into how God is the creator of our universe, the steps of creation explained through the book of Genesis and the similarities of modern scientific explanations, students in Years 5 & 6 are exploring a wide variety of views of creation. Class 5/6S have been delving into apologetics, the art of defending your faith and discovering that no matter the popular, current scientific explanation the truth that God created the world remains constant. This week the students’ interest in Minecraft has allowed them opportunity to map out current scientific theories using this digital design program; creating a nebula, the process of gases and solids separating, the creation of the sun, the planets and finally the moon and earth. The Stage 3 assembly this afternoon allowed 5/6W to display their solar system dioramas and share some of their space investigations. Explorations into the solar system across Stage 3 classes has dovetailed beautifully with the beginnings of the establishment of the Astronomy Science Education Centre (ASEC). The students are looking forward to exploring the heavens through telescopes on Friday 18 June at the Astronomy Night.
