We joined in with Room 1 for some 'Discovery' Time today.
Discovery is the perfect opportunity to excite children's curiosity, discover their strengths and stand back and observe how they work together as they choose from a range of activities and self-direct their own learning.
We focused on the ‘Key Competencies’ of ‘managing self’ and ‘relating to others’ i.e. looking after equipment, sharing, taking turns, cleaning up when you have finished, trying something new, working with someone you don’t know…
It was a great way to meet new friends and learn more about each other!
