Our First Discovery Time

We had a 'Discovery Time' session at school today. It was very successful. Discovery time is all about the children engaging in learning in a structured play type environment. There is always a focus on one or more of the the Key Competencies. Todays focus was on "Looking after Equipment" and our Discovery time today involved the whole school.
Next term Room 3 will be holding Discovery Times once a week on a Friday. The children were very excited to be involved in this type of learning today and I am very much looking forward to more of it in the future.

Leaves, leaves, leaves...

A couple of weeks ago we had some fun with leaves...for the past few weeks we have been working on making a book of our experiences on the iPad. We drew some pictures, wrote a story and most of us recorded our voice reading our stories.
 Click on the link below to see our story book. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
