Door to world of sport

In our preschool we found very special door, door with five circles. Do you know what these circles mean?


We stepped through the door and we found amazing world, world of winter olympic games. World of sports, fun, snow and ice. We learned a lot of new things, discovered new sports and we had a lot of fun.

First we made props and we learned about other countries, flags, shapes, colours, we were counting, get to know different symbols… We were learning about sports behaviour and fairplay.  We learned to sing Slovenian anthem.

And then we had an opening ceremony with entry of all teams with their flags, olympic flag, anthem, olympic mascot and lighting of olympic fire.

Than we had a lot of fun competed in different sports-  ski jumping, biathlon, figure skating, curling, skiing, luge, hockey… Do you know all these sports?

And at the end there was closing ceremony with awarding medals. And we had special visitors – major of Tržič, our hedamistress Tatjana and director of Sport unit.




Our new doors

We were talking about doors, what kind of doors we have, where we can go through the door…Then we looked all the doors in our preschool and we went for a walk and looked different kind of doors in our neighbourhood.

We decided that we want our door to be really special. We like colours, rainbow and sun so we want to put all this on our door. We were working really hard.

And now we have rainbow door with sun and our photos. What do you think? Do you like it?

Making a door in Iceland

To make our door we started out doing some research.

We made doors of unit blocks.


Then we drew pictures of doors and used different materials to make our very own mini doors.

Now it was time to make one common door. We had to decide f.ex. the shape of door and how big and wide it should be?


We wanted to paint our door. It became blue. We wanted a window, a mailbox and what we in Iceland call “Gægjugat” (a small circle that makes it possible for you to see who is on the outside). We needed a handle to be able to open and close and finally a number. The number of our door is 23.

We needed to decide if the decoration around the window should be symmetrical and if so how? We used a mirror to help us out.


Here is our final outcome.

Bees go through the Secret Door

Bees enjoy the topic of doors, and beside discovering its shapes and types – have lots of fun uncovering various places hidden by “The Secret Door“. Thanks to this application children visit places worldwide, describe various elements they can see by virtual walk.

They already walked in Colosseum (Rome), had a ride on the top of Swiss train, attended Japanesse parade and entered a theatre in Germany. Children were also in the restaurant on the roof and in a music store. You never know where these door let you go to.
You need to try it out!
