Rocky's Game, Key Stage 2, May 2017

The Key Stage 2 children have been learning all about fossils this term.  They have discovered how fossils were made and where they can now be found.  They have also learnt about the Jurassic Coast by playing a game, called 'Rocky's Game', in preparation for our whole school trip to Charmouth next month.  Some children have their own fossil collections at home and have brought some specimens into school to show to the rest of the class.

Year 6 complete SATs Challenge, May 2017

Our hard-working Year 6 pupils have now completed their SATs.  They took papers which tested their reading, their grammar, punctuation and spelling, and their maths skills in arithmetic and reasoning.  Having completed this challenge, they were ready to enjoy their celebratory ice-creams and let off some steam by playing a badminton match in the school hall.

World War II Topic in KS2, January 2017

The history topic for the Key Stage 2 pupils this term is all about World War II and what it would have been like to be a child living in the era.  So far, the children have learned about the reasons why the war started, about the effect of the blitz and about shelters (they have even made their own cardboard versions!)  The pupils are so enthusiastic about this topic that some have brought World War II artefacts into school to share with the class.  The photograph shows one of our Year 6 pupils trying on a sheepskin flying-jacket from the period.

Class 3 make Butter! January 2017

As part of an English unit on instruction writing, Class 3 followed a recipe to make butter.  They used double cream and shook it vigorously until it solidified.  They then sieved off the whey, patted the butter into shape using some wooden butter pats and finally spread their butter onto bread to taste.  The overall consensus was that their home-made butter was delicious.

KS2 Sporting Excitement, January 2017

The Key Stage 2 children have been given a very exciting opportunity to try out some new sports by the company Premier Sports.  One of their coaches, Andy Tyrell, came into Doddi and taught the children about special fencing terms and the basic fencing moves.  After only one hour, the children were already able to attack, defend and counter-attack.  Milly in Year 5 said that the afternoon had been really fun and that the children had progressed a lot.
