Absolutely amazing, well done. X
Amazing well done!! Shanshan Bie
The Dragons tested out the windmill sails they created earlier this week today to see if they worked, it wasn’t a particularly windy day but we were pleasantly surprised! We then created our own windmills, including the base and new sails based on our design of a windmill from yesterday. We had to use our concentration and resilience as it was quite fiddly. #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less
The Year 2 Dragons went on a scavenger hunt in Literacy! We had to match up the contractions to the words and draw the symbol as proof. We worked as a team and helped each other out. We worked so hard and the final product was outstanding. We are so proud. #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsliteracy #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
We took our Literacy outside today for a contraction scavenger hunt. Our job was to find the contractions and match them to the full version. Great fun. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsenglish #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants have enjoyed their first ukulele lesson this morning. They have been learning a song, and for their first attempt, I think it sounds pretty good! #dcpselephant #dcpsmusic #dcpacore ... See MoreSee Less
The Elephants continued their STEM unit by looking at classification keys. They used questions to identify the characteristics of living things. Then they developed their own classification keys to sort the living thing into species. They worked really hard and did and fantastic job! #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
In maths this week Year 2 are learning about position, movement and direction. Today we specifically looked at compass directions; North, South, East and West. It was such a glorious day we went outside and worked with a partner to follow directions with a compass. We worked as a team and helped each other! #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc ...

It’s another DT week in Year 2 and we are looking at windmills. We have been learning about different materials and which would be the best for a strong windmill. We also tried to make our own sails out of paper and crepe paper, it was very fiddly but we persevered and had so much fun! #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less
In Year 2 last week to end our picnic topic we made healthy fruit skewers, the perfect picnic food! Firstly, we designed and labelled our fruit skewers then we went outside and ate them! So many happy faces enjoying our little picnic. #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 took their phonics lesson outside on a SPaG scavenger hunt. We answered the questions then looked for the answer on the next card. We certainly gave our brains and our legs a work out. #dcpsdragon #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsenglish #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
The Dinos are exploring position and direction. On this beautiful morning they gave each other directions to follow using compass directions. Once we got our lefts and rights sorted we were flying. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsmaths #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
The Whales have had a fantastic few days working the EV3 Robots in Computing. They have had to work together as a team to write a sequence of codes to give the robot instructions. Applying their learning, they then had to complete different robot missions, for example, the robot travelling around a particular shape. Their final mission was to set a robot challenge up for another group - some of which were very challenging indeed! Well done Whales! #dcpswhale #dcpscomputing #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants are loving their STEM Unit, Living Things and their Habitats. Today we went on an invertebrate hunt in the school grounds. We had to think of the different areas they might live and carefully look for them. We used an identification chart and classification key to identify the invertebrates that we found. It was great fun! We got some fab pictures of the creatures, so if you’re not fan, you might want to skip some of the photos! #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants are doing a great job with their Recount unit. Today we were using lots of examples of show, not tell descriptions. It was quite tricky at times, but we came up with some great ideas! #dcpselephant #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
This afternoon, Year 4 went outside to do an Invertebrate Hunt! This week they have been learning all about classification keys of different animals, and used their own to identify what type of invertebrate they found on their hunt! #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
We have had the first three groups of children back at the woods over the last week. They have been exploring the area, climbing trees, working together and taking risks. The photos speak for themselves... #dcpsEYFS #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsladybird ... See MoreSee Less
Brilliant so much fun
Looks like they had loads of fun
Here are some photos of the Panda class during our last two Commando Joe sessions. The children have been using their brilliant communication skills to work as a team and succeed at their missions. The missions have been to create a home from a sleeping jungle animal, collect lily pads and become code breakers. All of these tasks required the children to use their communication skills and we were brilliant! #dcpapanda #dcpsmaths #dcpstopic ... See MoreSee Less
The Polar Bears have used their teamwork skills to navigate through the jungle this afternoon. They faced several challenges including lost team mates and lava.
I was blown away with their communication skills. Well done Polar Bears!

Well done to all of the Whales for their excellent parenting skills last week. The children were learning all about human development and had to apply their learning to look after their very own flour baby! The children were great parents, looking after the children for 24 hours a day, all week! Take a look at how adorable their babies were! #dcpswhale #dcpscore #dcpslifeskills #dcpsstem ...

Some excellent research skills from Elephants this afternoon. We created a class Animal Classification chart by finding as many different animals as possible that were either mammals, birds, fish, reptiles or amphibians. We have some great discussions and there were fantastic questions as always. #dcpsElephants #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
This week in nursery we have been pirates. We met Dangerous Dan who said we’d never find his treasure but his husband Pirate Pete was fed up with him leaving his smelly socks around so has sent us a map of where it is to teach him a lesson. At the start if the week we made our boat to go there and drew maps so we knew where we are going. Today we went to find Dangerous Dan’s treasure and used our maps to help us. We found the pirate ship, then the mountain, the palm trees, the skull and finally the x that marked the spot! Once we found the treasure we counted it it carefully and drew pictures of it! What a busy piratey week! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsmath #dcpsliteracy ... See MoreSee Less

Fruit skewer anyone? The Dinos are now experts at making them (and eating them). We had a great afternoon designing and making delicious fruit skewers, some of us tried out some new fruit too. I think the happy faces at our little picnic say it all 😁#dcpsdinosaur #dcpsdt #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants have enjoyed their first session with NUFC today. They worked on their running and relay skills in the beautiful sunshine. Great work everyone. #dcpselephant #dcpspe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants have enjoyed the start of their STEM unit on Living Things and their Habitats. To start we thought about how to sort living things into groups. We began with ourselves and came up with fab ideas, starting with boys and girls, before thinking about hair colour and other characteristics. Next we thought of criteria that we could sort other living things into and worked together to complete vent diagrams. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Well done Freya so proud, all that hard you have done woo woo
Wow fantastic princess
Brilliant, well done Freya
This week in the Dragon class it is DT week. We are looking at picnic foods. Yesterday we explored where food comes from, it is has been farmed, caught or grown. Today we tried lots of different picnic foods such as nachos, salami and feta cheese which were a big hit. Olives, gherkins and pickled onions weren’t so much. We were very brave and tried some foods we had never even heard before! We washed our hands before and after. #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less
Our new maths topic in Year 2 is 2D and 3D shapes. We started by having a refresh on the 2D shapes and today we explored lines of symmetry. We overlapped the shapes to see if they had a clear line of symmetry and drew it on. We checked if we were correct by using mirrors. #dcpsdragon #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday Year 2 learned about World Environment day. We looked at how litter, specifically plastic, can damage the environment and what we can do to help. We went outside and cleaned up the field to do our part. #dcpsdragon #dcpslifeskills #dcpsgeography #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
This week in DT we are looking at picnic food. Yesterday we explored where our food comes from and thought about what would make a good picnic lunch. Today we were very brave and tried lots of different picnic food. Salami and nachos were a big hit, the same could not be said for olives and pickles. I’m sure you can tell which we weren’t keen on from our faces 😂

It’s hot write day for the Dinos. They researched their facts yesterday and are now using them to write information texts. They have a lot to remember to include as well as checking for punctuation. I’m very impressed with their work. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
These children are blowing my socks off! Another 34 club achiever and our first 45 club badge for the year. There is no stopping these children.

Yesterday Y2 learned about world environment day which took place on the 5th June. We talked about how plastics and litter damage the environment and what we can do to help with this. We then cleaned up our own environment with a litter pick on our yard. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpslifeskills #dcpsgeography #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants enjoying DT this afternoon. They worked in groups to develop prototypes of their designs. They developed of a piece of equipment that could pick things up. There was impressive problem solving and teamwork. Once their prototypes were complete, they then developed the rest of their design. Great job everyone! #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpscore ...

Year 5 Dolphins had a really useful session yesterday learning how to give first aid in an emergency, including checking breathing, treating burns and cuts, giving CPR and what to do if someone is choking. Please ask us to show you what we have learned! #dcpsdolphin #dcpscore #dcpslifeskills ... See MoreSee Less
The Whales had an amazing First Aid session today. The children learned the importance of first aid in emergencies - learning about breathing, choking and CPR. The children were amazing when practising and they would love to teach you at home, making sure you are ready for an emergency #dcpswhale #dcpslifeskills #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Today the Dinos used their new knowledge of coding using Scratch Jnr to create an under the sea animation complete with several sprites, each having their own movement code. They are flying with this. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpscomputing #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants have had a fantastic no cook cook-a-long with Phunky Foods this afternoon. We made a healthy super crunch. We used delicious fruit, yogurt and honey. We learned how to be safe in the kitchen, found out all about healthy foods and how tinned fruit counts towards our 5 a day. It was so delicious it disappeared in seconds! Ask how we made it, and we may even make some at home! #dcpselephant #dcpslifeskills #dcpscore #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less
Today Elephants learned important first aid skills. We found out how to check if someone is breathing, how to help someone if they are choking and what to do if someone burns themselves. We know who to call if there is an emergency and why it is important to be able to tell the emergency services where we live. Ask us about what we found out and we’ll even teach you some first aid at home! #dcpselephant #dcpslifeskills #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
The Year 5 children had a great time applying their maths skills inside and outside the classroom on Friday.

This week in our final Commando Joe’s session, Elephants had to create a map of the settlement they built a few weeks ago. They worked brilliantly to recreate their village. They were then tasked with drawing their map and using a key to show what they had included. Great job Elephants! #dcpselephant #dcpslifeskills #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
