Class 1 journey into Space!

After the fabulous experience of the planetarium at @ Bristol Class One have continued to learn about Space.  The children have been engaged in space dance and drama, even eaten some space ice cream created planets out of papier maiche and rockets out of mod roc.  This week we have been learning about non fiction texts and the children are busily researching topics for their own non fiction page which will be compiled into a Class One book about Space.

Athletics with Exeter College, April 2013

A group of students from Exeter College came into school to work with the Key Stage 2 pupils.  They set up three sets of athletics activities on the field: running, throwing and jumping and the children rotated round the different activities.  They had a thoroughly good time learning new physical skills with this group of enthusiastic students.  Thank you Exeter College!

Forces in Action in Class 3, April 2013

Following our fabulous trip to @Bristol, the children in Class 3 learnt all about the different forces around us.  They carried out a number of investigations into the effects of some of these forces including one to find out whether objects weigh more when weighed in the air or when weighed in water.  What do you think they found out?  They also investigated which type of elastic would be better for bungee jumping!

Doddi @Bristol! April 2013

The whole school went on a special trip to Bristol to visit the science activity centre, @Bristol.  We had the most fabulous day!  We started off in our classes at different workshops.  Class 3 looked at 'Fabulous Forces, Class 2 went to the 'Earth, Sun and Moon' workshop and Class 1 visited the Planetarium.  After the workshops, we had our lunch and then we were free to look around the interactive exhibits, all of which were very exciting and interesting.  We also got to visit the shop at the very end of our trip before our journey home!

Funny Run, March 2013

The last day of the Spring Term always involves Doddi School's annual Funny Run which, this year, was held to raise money to send to unicef to help prevent malnutrition in children around the world.  The children dressed up as their favourite book characters: there were a number of Harry Potters, an evil Morgana, a Queen of Hearts and a Mr Grumpty to name but a few.  There were also a number of Wallys from 'Where's Wally' who looked suspiciously like members of staff!

Author Visit, March 2013

 

David Laurence Jones came to visit our school. He told us about what inspired him to be a writer and where his ideas came from. Then some of us acted out his first Bradley Baker story.  We really enjoyed this visit because he was very happy and funny, so he made the visit exciting.
