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.

Snow White Panto Trip, January 2017

The whole school travelled to Plymouth's Theatre Royal to see this year's pantomime - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  It was very exciting, with many amazing effects such as a real flying dragon and a speaking magic mirror.  There were also many songs, roughly based on current chart hits, and jokes (good and bad) galore!  What a great experience!

Class One build lego zip wires

After learning about the inventor of lego, Ole Kirk Christiansen, the children were challenged to build a lego zip wire.  This led to lots of discussion about the difference the angle of the slope made, gravity, and forces.  For example if the angle of the slope were too great, gravity pulled it down fast and because there was no breaking or friction to slow him down the force with which he reached the end of the zip wire meant he broke into pieces!  The children showed great determination and resilience during this activity as well as being very proud when their zip wires we
