Working together produced two giant Matariki stars.  To make each star we needed seven pieces of artwork and each piece of artwork was created by one or two children. They took us three days to complete.

Retro Discoveries

We've been using an 'oldie but a goodie' at Discovery - a listening post.
The children have been learning about cassette tapes, how you have to rewind them and you can see the tape going from one side to the other and then it goes back to the other side when it is playing and half way through the story it tells you to turn it over!
They have been totally amazed and intrigued (look at some of their faces). The novelty has not worn off, they keep asking for it to be put out again.

Easter craft fun at Discovery. See if you can spot someone you know from Rooms 9, 11 & 12 who come along each morning.

Our final week of Discovery for 2017 was spent making snowmen.

It was a scorching first day of summer.  Even this morning it was so hot most of us decided it was best to be in the shade.

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.
