Easter Assembly, March 2013

The Rev Mayer came into school to lead our Easter Assembly. He told us the Easter story and then explained why hot-cross buns are like they are with their crosses, spices and dried fruit. We all got to taste a little bit! He then gave each child a palm cross to take home with them.

Rights Respecting Schools Assembly, March 2013

The Key Stage 2 children have been working hard thinking about their rights and responsibilities, and how they could help inform the younger pupils in the school, and the parents, all about them. They put on a fabulous assembly to show the results of their endeavours to an enthusiastic audience. Firstly, each child showed their special painting of either a right or a responsibility and explained what it showed. Then, small groups of children acted out a series of rights and the audience had to guess which right they thought it showed. This was great fun! The assembly ended with the KS1 children being asked about whether they knew more about their rights and responsibilities (a resounding 'yes'!) and a questionnaire being given to the parents (which also came back with a totally positive set of answers). Many thanks to the parents who were able to come and be a part of this event today and for their very positive and enthusiastic feedback. If you click on the link below, you will see the powerpoint put together for the assembly, containing all the children's amazing artwork. It is also a good reminder of all their rights and responsibilities!

Potato Planting, March 2013

As part of the 'Grow Your own Potatoes' scheme, each of the KS2 classes planted out six sprouting potatoes of two different varieties.  They filled strong black polythene bags with compost, planted the potatoes and covered them with a little more compost.  They will hopefully grow lots of baby potatoes to be harvested in June.

Doddi celebrates World Book Day

We all enjoyed stories on World Book day. Thanks to parents and staff who brought in favourite books to read, we were all able to go and listen to a story at the end of Thursday. This was followed by a book swap and a bun bake. What could be better - delicious cakes and good books to read!
