Getting Started with Discovery Time
"OK ! Lets go to Space!"
It has been a lot of fun getting Discovery Time underway at Pukerua Bay School.
Their first key competency focus was -'working together',but we found not enough activities required co-operation. We are all learning!
The second week was -'challenge yourself' and wow, they sure did.
Black paper and shish kebab sticks soon became shadow puppets. With the sun streaming in through the shade curtains the children quickly created their own theatre stage - how's that for creative thinking?
The class camera was used to record their own space rescue drama. The teacher was impressed with the child that self appointed herself as narrator.
