Halloween Celebrations, October 2016

The children had great fun celebrating Halloween at Doddi this year.  Lisa made a very special Halloween lunch and decorated the hall so that the pupils could really get into the spirit of the occasion.  After school, the Doddi Friends organised a very exciting Halloween party where the children dressed up as ghouls and ghosties (and many other scary beasties). They shared a meal of very frightening food and then played a number of truly gruesome games!  Many thanks to Lisa and Friends for making Halloween special for the children this year.

Half-Term Assembly, October 2016

At the end of the first half-term of the year, the school congregated in the hall for an assembly.  Mr Arnold talked to the children and congratulated them on earning so many house-points so far during the year.  He announced that Powderham House currently had the most house points altogether but that the other two houses were not far behind!  He also congratulated these lovely children (see the photograph) because they have all been in school for every day so far this term despite the nasty bugs that have been doing the rounds.  Well done to them!

Talented artists at Doddi, October 2016

We are currently flushed with artistic success here at Doddi School as a result of entering the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England's special art competition last term.  We sent in our beautiful artwork of the outside environment and have been rewarded with being the runners up in the school's competition, winning a £50 gift voucher for Muddy Places.  Not only did we win this stunning prize, but one of our Class 1 girls was the overall winner out of all the Key Stage 1 entries.  Well done Doddi pupils - you are Picassos in the making!

Class 3 make Friendly Plastic, October 2016

As part of their Science Week, the Class 3 children have been looking at reversible and irreversible changes.  As an example of an irreversible change, they made their very own plastic in the classroom, using friendly, renewable materials (milk and vinegar), which they have used to make into special mascots.  Look at the photographs to see the process in action!

First Bronze Stars Awarded! October 2016

The children have been working very hard this term and have been earning many house-points.  Some children have really excelled themselves and have already been awarded 1,000 house-points, meaning that they have won the coveted bronze-star which they will be able to proudly wear on their shirt collars. The photographs show the children from each class who have already reached this level.  There are also many more pupils who are now within reach of this fantastic achievement.  Well done Doddi learners!

SWUNK visit Doddi! October 2016

The funk and swing band, SWUNK, from Exeter School, came into school to play some fantastic tunes to the whole school, and some of the Doddi pupils were invited to play and sing along too.  The six members of the band are all sixth formers and they introduced each of their instruments, blending them together to make some great music.  Their teacher, Peter Tamblyn, also told the children how jazz is constructed like a train and they then counted through the journey using their fingers and feet!!  What a great afternoon!
