RRS Food Assembly

The Key Stage 2 children have been looking at the topic of food around the world and presented their work in an assembly to Class 1 and the parents.  They discovered that in some parts of the world, people do not get enough to eat and so organisations like Unicef provide help and advice.  They also found that it is very important to have a healthy diet and that some people in this country do not always eat the right types of food.  The children made a special powerpoint (which is on our website), acted out some TV adverts, placed model food on a huge eatwell plate and also gave the audience the opportunity to try some of our Doddi Peanut Paste!

Key Stage 2 Residential at Heatree House, July 2013

The Key Stage 2 children spent three wonderful days at Heatree House Activity Centre in the very heart of Dartmoor.  They children faced lots of exciting activities such as climbing Hay Tor and completing a very wet and muddy stream scramble, and also faced the many challenges set for them during the game of Global Challenge.  The centre was fabulous and the staff there looked after each and every one of us.  We had the most marvellous time and can't wait to go back!

Fabulous Recycled Bottle Greenhouse

After months of saving plastic bottles, a morning spent cleaning the bottles, cutting off the bottoms and threading them onto canes our greenhouse was ready for construction.  Mr Hutchinson very kindly volunteered his time and skills to complete the project for us.  And what spectacular result!  Gardening Club can't wait to use it!

Connor the Hedgehog rescuer!

Whilst walking to Mrs Cupper's house on Thursday Connor spotted a tiny hedgehog. Because of our work on habitats in science, Connor knew that a baby hedgehog out during the day is a cause for concern. Together they took the baby hedgehog (now named Lucky) home and put it on a warm hot water bottle, in a little box and took it to Prickly Ball Hedgehog hospital. The lady at the hedgehog hospital tried to feed and help Lucky.

Fun in the Sun - the Doddi Summer Fete, 2013

People from far and wide flocked to the Doddi Summer Fete this year to enjoy the many amusements set out around the school field.  The sun shone kindly upon us as things got underway with the opening of our new play area by the Doddi Chair of Governors, Bob Cope.  Then the fun began with the firm old-favourites like the bouncy castle, splat the rat, guess the weight of the (absolutely beautiful) cake, Year 6 Dragons Sale, delicious BBQ and cream teas and the bric-a-brac stall, and the new addition of sumo wrestling!  This fabulous community event was enjoy

Athletics Competition, Teign School, June 2013

Doddi took part in an exciting athletics competition held at Teign School against Rydon and Chudleigh Knighton schools.  Our team of 12 children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 competed against the year 5s and 6s from the other two schools and did an excellent job, even when the rain began to pour making the ground underfoot very slippery!  Our team came second - well done to Toby, Ieva, Evita, Millie, Aine, Matty, Isaac, Sam C, Izzy, Anna, Fleur and Jonny.

KS2 Swimming, June 2013

The Key Stage 2 children have been very active at Bovey Swimming Pool during this summer term.  They have been working in three ability groups to improve their swimming skills.  All the pupils in the Turtles group gained their Level 4 Water Skills Grade and all the pupils in Sharks gained their Level 3.  In Dolphins, two children swam a width of the pool and two others nearly swam all the way across.  Really well done to all the children who worked so hard during these swimming sessions.
