Badminton at Doddi, January 2014

Tim Flint, a PE teacher from Teign School, came into Doddi to work with eight keen pupils in Year 5 and 6, teaching them the skills of badminton.  He began teaching them the basic shots and then how to return shots over a net.  The children had great fun learning these new skills.

'Cop Cards' Scheme, January 2014

Police Community Support Officers, Leanne and Paul, came into school to tell us about the 'Cop Cards' Scheme which is being run across the Teignbridge area for the next six months.  All the children have been given a special sticker card with room for 26 stickers.  These stickers are being given out by police officers in the local area and children can ask them for the ones they are missing.  Leanne and Paul will come into school during playtimes and will give some stickers out then.  They will also take the children's fingerprints during one o

Robin Hood Pantomime, January 2014

The whole school had a great trip to Plymouth to see the pantomime of 'Robin Hood' with Bobby Davro and Nigel Havers.  It was a very funny show with lots of shouting of 'Oh no, you won't!' and much audience participation.  We also got to eat a delicious ice-cream during the interval!  Many thanks to the Doddi Friends who funded the trip.

Playground Charter, January 2014

The children have been busy thinking about what things make playtimes fun and enjoyable.  They decided that having good play equipment was important but that how everyone treated one another was the most important thing of all.  The Key Stage 2 children made a display of Doddi children in their perfect playground including speech bubbles to show how people were interacting with one another.  They then used all these ideas to make the Doddi playground charter outlining what both children and adults could do to make playtimes happy.

Fizz Pop Science Club, January 2014

Fizz Pop Science Club, led by Amazing Alice, has now begun and will run for the first six weeks of the Spring Term.  The first session was all about engineering and the children built their own vertical marble runs using gulleys and wheels to direct the marbles.  They also made horizontal marble runs which incorporated tiny trampolines to direct their marble onto a scoring area.

Christmas Celebrations, December 2013

The children had a fabulous time beginning their Christmas celebrations before the end of term.  They enjoyed the most wonderful Christmas lunch prepared by our very own Mrs Wylie who really did us proud with home-cooked food of the most delicious kind!  They also enjoyed their Christmas parties with lots of silly party games to get them into the spirit of Christmas (as if they need any help!)

We also said a fond farewell to Heather who has worked at the school for the last ten years as an LSA.  Goodbye Heather - we will miss you!

Christmas Nativity Play, December 2013

The children delighted family and friends with their special Christmas production of Stable Manners - a nativity story with a twist introducing three rather selfish animals who eventually realise what the real message of Christmas is.  The children acted and sang fabulously and everyone had a great time - it would have been a sell-out three times over.
