Discovery Time

This week at Discovery Time our activities were...flip-boards, making table, autumn leaf pictures, leaf rubbings, and cup staking. The Hope School Life Skill this term is "Relating to Others". Within this skill we were focusing this week on 'Negotiating'. This meant that many of us were learning how to work together and take turns or share the class equipment. There was lots of negotiating needed at the cup staking activity as the boys found they could make a taller tower if they all joined together.
