Discovery Class

Welcome to our class! In Discovery, we continue the Nurture Principles that are embedded in the boy's routine in Victory and Eclipse. We develop our social skills through play-based learning, team building activities and social activities such as circle-time. We are all proud to be members of Team Discovery.

The staff who work in our class are Ms Loader (Teacher), Miss Hamblin and Mrs Leydon (Teaching Assistants). As a team we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff. 

In Discovery, we know that it's great to make mistakes! We do our best learning when we feel safe to try new things and explore new concepts. We access the curriculum through a range of learning experiences which help us get excited about our learning. Some of our Learning Experiences include 'A Drop in the Ocean'; 'Roll out The Romans' and 'Around the World in 80 Days'. We use a range of strategies to support our learning including visual aids (such as timetables and symbol-assisted signs) and kinaesthetic activities.

 

We are learning: Autumn Term 

We have an exciting new year ahead of us all! Our first Learning Experience in September will be 'Ancient Egypt'. During this topic, we will develop our knowledge and understanding of the achievements of the this ancient civilisation. We will learn about how and where the Ancient Egyptians lived, what was important to their daily routines, who Tutankhamun was and all about the mummification process. We will also learn about how the Egyptian people used hieroglyphics to communicate and compare the powers of different gods.

In English, we will look at poetry inspired by Ancient Egypt. We will identify devices used to make an interesting poem and use this to write our own. 

'Being me in my World' will be our Jigsaw (PHSE) topic. We will be investigating how we can be a good citizen and our rights and responsibilities in the classroom.
