Charmouth Visit, June 2017

The whole school decamped to Charmouth for the day to make beautiful beach art from found natural objects and learn about how fossils are formed.  Phil, a palaeontologist from the Heritage Centre, took us onto the beach to search for the fossil remains of ancient creatures such as crinoids, belemnites and ammonites.  We all had a fantasticand very exciting time hunting for fossils whilst enjoying the warm sunshine in beautiful surroundings.  What a great day!

Doddi's Got Talent 2017

This year's Doddi's Got Talent Show was a fantastic event, thoroughly enjoyed by pupils and parents alike.  There was a huge array of different acts ranging from gymnastics displays and magic acts, to musical performances and comedy acts (one, of course, with the obligatory 'embarrass the teachers' motif!)  Doing the very difficult job of judging this year were Jane and Ann, who are part of the Open the Book assembly group.  Our winners from KS1 were George and Evie, with Sophie winning in KS2 - both winning acts were very funny comedy turns.&nb

Class One Topic Letter - Summer 2 2017

Class One visit Teignmouth Beach

As part of our Geography topic on the seaside the children in Class One were lucky enough to visit Teignmouth beach. The children were challenged to identify six man made and six natural items that you might find at the seaside as well as identifying key features of Teignmouth beach such as the pier and the harbour. After lunch the children engaged in some typical beach activities such as digging, creating pictures with sticks or shells as well as the most popular activity... jumping waves!

Machine-Building by Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children learnt about different types of force such as gravity, air resistance, friction and upthrust during their science week.  They also looked at the workings of simple machines which use levers, springs, gears and pulleys.  They then made their own simple machines using a variety of different mechanisms and demonstrated them to the rest of the pupils.  Some, such as Sophie's rubber-band-powered car transporting a Sylvanian family, worked really well!

Outdoor Classroom Day

The children celebrated Outdoor Classroom Day by spending the morning at Dreamwood thanks to Mr and Mrs Ponti.
The children had a fantastic time developing their resilience and team working skills through a treasure hunt, where they had to crack the code to reach the treasure, as well as their communication skills through trust games.  All in all a great morning was had by all.
