Dance Club, January 2018

Our new dance club, run by Mia, began this week.  Nearly half the school’s pupils took part, learning different ways of moving around the space and finally putting together a short routine.  It was very energetic and lots of fun.

Fizz Pop Science is a Blast! January 2018

At our first Fizz Pop Science Club this year, we were detectives and had to work out who stole the missing biscuits.  We printed our fingerprints on a piece of paper and then looked at the different types: the loop, whorl and arch.  Having done that, we tested the reactions of types of ink when placed in water.  The last test we ran was seeing how each powder reacted when mixed with vinegar.  We had lots of fun being detectives.

The Key Stage 2 pupils have begun a series of tennis lessons given by tennis coach, Tim Brearly, this half-term.  He will be working with the children to develop their tennis skills, on the refurbished courts at Christow.  Despite the rather chilly weather, the children thoroughly enjoyed their first lesson.

Christmas Lunch and Music and Mince Pies, December 2017

What a fantastic run-up to Christmas we have had here at Doddi!  Lisa cooked a delicious Christmas lunch for all the staff and pupils and then the children put on an amazing performance, for an appreciative audience of parents and friends, playing Christmas tunes on a variety of different instruments.  Happy Christmas one and all!

Jonah and the Whale, December 2017

Our Christmas performance this year was based on the bible story of Jonah and the Whale with some rather unusual additional characters!  The Key Stage 2 children thoroughly enjoyed bringing this story to life with their fantastic acting; the Key Stage 1 children added an extra dimension with their lively dancing and everyone sang the songs with great gusto.  It was a fabulous performance, enjoyed by one and all.

Fizz Pop Science Assembly, December 2017

A Fizz Pop Science scientist came into school to take an assembly all about air.  He showed us how to blow up a massive balloon with virtually no effort at all; how to suck a balloon, called Bob, into a tiny container and how to 'hit' people with a pressure wave.  It was all very exciting.  If children want to learn even more about different aspects of science in an exciting and hands-on way, Fizz Pop will be running a science club in school at the beginning of 2018.

Christingle Service, December 2017

It's nearly Christmas time and so the pupils all gathered in the hall to make their own Christingles and later took part in a torch-lit procession to Doddi Church for the school's Christingle service.  It was a lovely service with readings by the pupils, the singing of traditional Christmas carols and the lighting of the Christingle candles.  We also took a collection for the Children's Society to help other children enjoy their rights.
