Summary of Parent Survey

Thankyou very much to all the parents who took the time to complete this year's Parent Survey. The results and comments have been discussed in the June Full Governing Board meeting.

Nathalie Cherry did a fantastic job of collating all 26 responses into a very digestible document.

Whilst we are delighted as a Governing Board to read the fantastic comments and see the excellent results, we are equally grateful to receive the constructive comments in how we can make Doddiscombsleigh Primary School even more fantastic.

First Big Write of the Year!

The first Big Write of the year will be a recount of something that the children have done during the summer holidays.  It might be a day out or a holiday away from home.  Your child will need to plan their work on the worksheet (a copy can be found by clicking on the link) and then they need to tell you all about what they are going to write.  This work is for Friday, 11th September.

Goodbye Year 6, July 2015

During the Leavers' Ceremony this year, we said goodbye to nine fantastic children who will be much missed.  The theme for the assembly was that of Ancient Egypt with each Year 6 becoming a god for the day.  We sang the special leavers' songs and the Year 6s put on a short play about what they will miss about leaving Doddi and what they are looking forward to in their move to secondary school.  Our award winners for this year were named; these were Izzy for winning the Year 6 Dragons Award, Aaron who won the Swimming Cup as the most improved swimmer, Matty who wo

Paul leaves the Doddi kitchen - or does he? July 2015

Paul Evans, who has been cooking delicious lunches for the children whilst Tina has been away, will be handing back to Tina who returns after the holidays.  The children had made him a lovely card in the shape of a frying pan to say thank you for all the lovely food he has provided during the last term.  He will however not be gone for good, as he will be returning in the Autumn to teach all the children in the school how to cook a variety of dishes.

PEPI and Bowling, July 2015

The Year 6 pupils have been working incredibly hard on their PEPI projects over the last few weeks and they proudly showed off the finished results to two admiring audiences: the children in the rest of the school during the afternoon, and their parents and friends in the evening.  This year the variety of projects chosen by the children was astonishing, from Wiliam Shakespeare and the Victorians, through to motorbikes and surfing!  After the PEPI presentations, Mrs Evans and Mrs McManus took the children to TenPin in Exeter to enjoy a game of bowling, food and other activiti

Sports Day, July 2015

We had a fantastic Sports Day split into two sections this year.  The skills section, which all children take part in, took place at school.  The Key Stage 1 children did the ball balance, javelin and ball bounce whereas the KS2 activities included football dribbling and hop, hop, jump, jump.  The racing part of Sports Day took place on the Teign House Inn field and was watched by an appreciative audience of family and friends who cheered on their favourite teams.  After many exciting races, Red Team were eventually victorious and were delighted to hold the Sports Cup al

Heatree Residential, July 2015

The whole of Key Stage 2 went to Heatree Activity Centre on Dartmoor for their residential this year with Mrs McManus, Miss Findlay and Seb (Mrs Lancaster's son).  They had an amazing time there!  They all got the chance to try out the new activity of caving which was rather wet, muddy and very dark.  They also tried the much cleaner and lighter activity of fencing in the Centre's Sports Hall and each of the three groups held a competition to find an overall winner - these were Sam C, Isaac and Quentin (all Year 6 boys).  The children also did the high ropes acti

Scrumptious Rice Crispy Cakes

In computing this half term the children have been learning about algorithms.  The children started by looking at a range of recipes and based on their features had to decide whether they were a good set of instructions, (algorithm), or not.  They then wrote their own recipes and tested them before creating a short video which they filmed and edited.  Please take a look at the videos and you too will be able to make scrumptious chocolate rice crispy cakes.  Enjoy!
