Students (from Rooms 11, 12 & 13) that come to the Discovery Programme each morning have been learning lots of skills through dramatic play.  We have had the Trentham Discovery Hospital open and students have been learning to communicate and cooperate with each other.
There has been a lot of talk (and listening) about symptoms that the patient has and what the doctor or nurse thinks the problem might be then working out a treatment.

We have had s'more fun learning at Discovery - check out our camping photos.




Making s'mores was a good chance to talk to the children about fire safety.

The perfect day for dressing up.  It was a great day for trying out some new costumes along with some old favourites.

Creating Paper Bag Buildings

Last Friday we created paper bag buildings.  We had to draw our building on a paper bag (some of us had never seen a paper bag before),  stuff it with newspaper and then we could add extra things like a roof or chimney.  Some people made houses (one was on fire), others made shops and someone made a fire station. At assembly we went up to share what we had made.  Have a look at the photos of us making our buildings and what they looked like when we had finished.

CRAZY CATCH

Exciting new equipment to try out today. The school has these brand new Crazy Catch nets available to use for PE/fitness and we got to use them first. Thanks Mr Searle for letting us use them for Discovery, we had heaps of fun.
