Our First Discovery Time

We have just had our very first Discovery Time. This is a time when we play and learn about things like sharing, taking turns and speaking nicely to other people. Here are our photos from today.

Aria - I made a t.v and a remote. The Wot Wots were on my t.v.

Katherine - I really liked the box that I made.

Devin - I liked playing with the dolls house and the chalk. I made a pretty butterfly.

Charlotte - I liked playing with the chalk and the boxes.

Jett - I made a mouse trap.

Fergus - We made a train track together - me and Reagan and Cooper and Luke and Ayushman.

Qwade - I liked making my castle.

Zara - I liked making my t.v.

Board Report - What have we been learning?

Ebony has asked us to tell the BOT what we have been learning. Here is what is on top for us at the moment.

Qwade - I know how to make finger spaces in my writing book. I got better when I wrote my train story.

Cooper - I have been learning that I need to go back to the beginning of the sentence when I don't know a word. I am getting better because I am practising.

Zara - I have been learning to do good pictures. I need to do it slowly. If you go fast you will make a mistake.

Aria - I have been learning to do good pictures. I can do clothes now.

Fergus - I am learning to do the mihi. We do it everyday, so I am getting better.

Sai - I am learning how to do finger spaces.

Sophie - We have got 2 more parts to our mihi now - one is for the girls and one is for the boys.

Katherine - I have been learning to draw good shapes. I need to put the sides nice and straight for a triangle.

Ashlee - I have been learning to write my sentence clearly. I am practising at home and at school.

Charlotte - We have been learning our poems. We can read them in our books.

Ayushman - I am learning to put a bracket around my mistake in writing.

Bridget - I am learning how to write clearly. I am getting better because I don't like to make mistakes.

Luke - I am learning to write sentences. I am trying to do finger spaces.

Devin - I have been learning to paint rainbows.

Reagan - I am good at my rainbow.

Jett - I am learning to write more words for word power. I have been sounding out letters.

Yassmine - I am learning about heavy and light with Carolyn. A car is heavy. A mouse is light.
