Nobody was nervous and in fact the children couldn't wait to get through the school gate! Room 1 was excited to be older buddies to their visitors. It was nice to see Karen, Grace and Tracey helping run our Discovery Time stations along with Julia and Jenny. Discovery time activities today included Bird Feeder making with Tracey, Play dough creating with Karen, Loom Band weaving with Grace and Julia and making Stick Puppets and skipping with Jenny Burne classroom teacher.
Today's Discovery Time focus was on the key competency of "Relating to others." All children had a partner to learn with and to help decide on activities together... cooperation, respect for others decisions, taking turns-these were all encouraged with each learning context.
There was also mobile, lego, paper and construction material available for imaginative independent play.
It looked like another great Discovery Time session in Room 1.
