Hello there, thanks for coming in.

This page is dedicated to all the exciting things that young Discoverers are getting up to

Discovery can Sing!

West End Singing Days at The Cresset

On Monday 13th November 40 of the choir children spent the day at The Cresset having a music workshop. They watched a live orchestra and had the chance to meet the musicians and ask any questions they wanted. The children were fascinated with the range of instruments and asked some really interesting questions leaving them feeling musically inspired. They then had some singing rehearsals and stage rehearsals to get them ready for their evening performance to parents. The children sang 'Where is Love' and 'Consider yourself' from Oliver the Musical. They sounded spectacular and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They represented Discovery superbly and we were very proud of them all. See the children in action below:

Discovery in the news - October 2017

We were all very exciting when local company Amazon got in touch offering to support the school with a cash donation.

The money was to be used to help build the school's stock of reading books to help our children become even more amazing readers.

The story appeared in the local paper. Read all about here: Evening Telegraph Story

NSPCC and Discovery on TV November 2017

Following the NSPCC's work in school, Discovery was chosen to appear on the local TV news. A video of the ITV broadcast can be seen below along with some pictures of children following the NSPCC fundraising collection assembly.

 

World Children's Day 2017

In the week beginning 20th November 2017, our young Discoverers too part in UNICEF's World Children's day. Read more about it here: UNICEF

At school, classes made an example of traditional dress/costume to fit on a mini-me cut-out. They took a moment to consider what life is like for children in nations around the world and how their life is similar or different. Discussion in these sessions became quite reflective as children learnt about life in other countries.
