Discovery Time ...

Today for Discovery we had the opportunity to have a go at a variety of different activities. We have started 'tuning in' to our Inquiry topic for the term, Marvellous Me and today's session was all about working out what we like doing and how we like doing it.  The activities we could choose from were things we could do independently and either on our own, with a buddy or in a small group.  There were things to make and things to do.  We were allowed to choose what we wanted and work with who we wanted...

Scarlett enjoyed 'people-watching' during the session, watching the different activities and interactions between the children. She delighted in seeing the antics with the dress-ups and dramatic play unfold, was interested in what the group of boys were creating with recycled construction materials and also did a bit of work on a collage...


Cooper, Faisal, Rory, Nicholas, Dehan and Alex headed straight for the construction activity. They each worked independently but alongside one another, asking for materials and resources and sharing them fairly between themselves and showing interest in one another's ideas and creations...



Georgia and Romy were engrossed for the whole time in the Mobilo.  They sat down and started talking together about what they could make and decided to make something together.  Sharing ideas and materials, they co-constructed, adapted and enhanced their 'aeroplane-car'...


Anvesha, Tanishka, Ollie, Sophia and Kaydi pawed through the dress-ups, trying on different outfits and acting out different characters.  Sophia enjoyed being Angelina Ballerina, Ollie was a giraffe and then turned into a cat and we had a heap of princesses and fairies...


Peter and Mohit enjoyed working alongside each other and playing with the playdoh, experimenting with the different tools and moulds...


Over the next few weeks we will be extending our Discovery programme and working alongside the other new entrant classrooms.  Keep an eye on our blog to see what we continue to learn about ourselves and how we like to learn in E7...
