Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Restless Patience

Over the past 2 weeks, Doves and Bullfinches have been exploring how we connect abstract pictures with words. Though we understand what Patience is and what a Restless Mind could be, connecting that to an image expands our minds and thoughts about how the picture could be displaying these emotions.

Patience Restless Mind

At times we see a picture and develop our stories and meanings about it. But once the picture is given a title, it can change our perspective and even change the story we’ve made inside our minds.

To explore this, we have been using our ‘Every Picture tells a Story’ lesson to look at the pictures and develop our stories. To ask the question, why is the picture called Restless Mind? What is the robot doing and what was he doing before this picture was taken?

Quietly, the rusted, metallic robot sat regretfully after foolishly following a vividly glowing moth that was enlightened by the bulb on the robot’s head.

Although he was trapped in an alleyway, the moth was still fluttering about keeping him company.

He then began thinking about his family sorrowfully recognizing that he had made a mistake leaving his beloved friends behind.

While he is sadly sitting in a narrow alley-way, his family are frantically searching for him whilst terror-stricken.

Exhausted, the oxidized robot got up and started walking. Although he stumbled, the determination to receive the reunion with his loved ones overflowed the thoughts of giving up.
