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!

Danger Dance performance at Northcott Theatre, March 2013

The Dance Club girls, led by Mrs McManus, performed their 'Danger' Dance at an evening event held at the Northcott Theatre. The dance, linked to the KS2 pupils' current topic about Japan, explored the many dangers faced by humans in the natural evironment. Though many of the dancers were frightened of their first time on a real stage, they rose to the occasion giving a wonderful performance and had an experience that they will never forget. The video was filmed at the technical rehearsal before the actual performance.

Volcanoes Erupt at Doddi, Feb 2013

During their Japan topic, the Key Stage 2 children have been learning about volcanoes.  They constructed their own volcanoes using plastic bottles, newspapers and tape and then we had a mass eruption in the school hall using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar!  It was very messy but great fun!
