Intra-School Competition, Autumn Term 2012

Every child at school has taken part in the Intra-School Competition which, for this term, involves seeing how many times a ball can be bounced off the wall of Class 1 and caught in a time of 20 seconds.  The best results in each class are as follows:  Class 1 - Archie S. with a score of 9, Class 2 - Anna with a score of 21 and Class 3 - Toby with a score of 24.  Well done to everyone for their throwing and catching skills!

Poetry Assembly, October 2012

To inspire the children for the Off by Heart competition taking place next week, the teachers have been working hard with their classes to help them learn a class poem. Today we heard the fruits of their labours and the results were fabulous! Class 1 recited 'Five Little Senses in a Row' with lots of actions, Class 2 performed 'The Sssnake Hotel' with lots of spitting! and Class 3 recited 'The Hyena' with lots of expression and gore! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performances.

Tag Rugby Sessions, October 2012

The Key Stage 2 children have been very lucky this term to have Phillip Laws, a coach from Newton Abbot Rugby Club, come into Doddi to lead some tag-rugby sessions on a Friday morning.  They have got very muddy learning all about defensive and attacking lines and how to pass a ball correctly on our slippery field but it has been great fun!

Harvest Assembly, October 2012

We celebrated Harvest during an assembly where Mrs. Evans made pizzas out of all the different foods that we give thanks for at this time of year.  These were cooked and shared out at lunchtime!  Reverand Mayer also said a special harvest prayer during the assembly.  Afterwards, some children helped make flower decorations for the church for the village harvest service.

Harvest at Embercombe

Class One visited Embercombe to support their learning about how the changes of the seasons affect our lives with a particular focus on Harvest.  The children had a fabulous day searching for and harvesting a range of ingredients for lunch, (a delicious vegetable soup), making an accompanying nettle cordial before finishing off with a ride on the tractor.  The cries of ‘”faster, faster” could be heard for some distance!  A great day was had by all!
