Class One's fabulous stories based on 'The Magic Porridge Pot'

Over the last few weeks the children in Class One have been learning how to write their own version of 'The Magic Porridge Pot'.  We began by learning the story off by heart, then we worked as a group to create our own version which we turned into an e-book in our computing lessons.  Finally the children worked independently to create their very own versions.  Enjoy!

Chocology for KS2 at the Eden Project, November 2016

The KS2 children had a very exciting trip to the Eden Project to take part in a chocology workshop.  For those children who had never visited Eden before, just the mere fact of being in such a a fantastic place was an amazing experience; for everyone else, it was great to learn more about chocolate from an expert and to see real cocoa pods growing on the trees inside the rainforest biome.  The children also thoroughly enjoyed exploring all three biomes to experience the different climatic conditions in each one.  It was an unforgettable day!

Theatre Alibi Trip, November 2016

What an adventure!  The whole school, transported in two mini-buses, went to the Teign Valley Hall to see this year's Theatre Alibi production.  The story, called 'The Boy who Climbed into the Moon', was about a lonely boy who has the idea of touching the sky.  When he puts the idea into action, a whole string of adventures follow.  The children were all spellbound as the story unfolded before them, told with real-life actors and puppets.  It is bound to inspire some of their own dazzling and magnificent stories!

Christmas Craft Club, November 2016

Christmas Craft Club, run by Mrs Beard along with a willing band of parents, is taking place on Mondays after school in the run-up to Christmas.  During the first session, the children made some very gorgeous Christmas bells which will look wonderful gracing the homes of Doddi families over the festive season.

Fairtrade Assembly and Great Mayan Cake Bake, November 2016

As a Rights Respecting school, we have been learning all about Fairtrade - how it helps farmers around the world and how it is important to buy Fairtrade goods where we can.  We put together an assembly to tell the KS1 children and parents about this topic.  We also used Fairtrade ingredients to make lots of delicious cakes to sell in order to raise money for Children in Need.  The cake sale had a Mayan theme because we have been looking at the ancient Mayans in our history lessons.  We dressed up in brightly-coloured Mayan style clothing and sold our cake

Remembrance Day at Doddi, November 2016

Mr Horton, who serves with the Royal Navy, came to talk to the children about the importance of Remembrance Day in honouring those who gave their lives in combat.  He also brought in lots of his equipment, so that the children could have a look at it all - they even got to try on his helmet and body armour!  They used light sticks in the darkened hall and also got to look at the room using his night-vision goggles.  It was a very informative and interesting assembly.
