On the final day of STEM week Elephants were looking at the water cycle to discuss the links between evaporation and condensation. We acted out the water cycle remembering how we would move if we were a liquid or a gas. Back in the classroom we then observed a water cycle in a jar. We saw that the water vapour collected on the cling film, then when ice was put on the top of the cling film, the water vapour started to condense. What a fun week! #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 were applying their addition and subtraction skills to solving word problems today. We had to read the questions carefully and decide which operation we needed to solve the calculation. Then match the correct answer to the question. #dcpselephant #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This week in Nursery we learnt all about caterpillars. We started off by talking about what we already know about caterpillars and thanks to the hungry caterpillar story we knew some important facts already. During the week we watched videos about real life caterpillars and drew pictures talking about what we had seen. We also shared information books and found out about real caterpillars.
Some of the children matched the real life caterpillars looking at each picture, talking about what they looked like and if we liked them.
At the end of the week we explored the HUGE track around the school field and took our bikes out to ride around it #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy #dcspscience #dcpspe

Year 3 have had an awesome stem week learning about light and dark. We have tested materials to see which ones are opaque, transparent or translucent. We have tested liquids to see which protect best against UV light and we have also tested materials to see which are the most reflective. A very busy and fun week for all. #dcpsturtle #dcpsstem ...

Year 3 have been using what they know about data, pictograms and bar charts to make their very own floor charts. We asked a question, in our groups and did a tally to see how many people we needed to include.

This afternoon was all about melting in the Elephant classroom. We wanted to find out if a range of solids had the same melting point. Again we had to make a prediction, we thought about which solid would melt the quickest. Most of us thought the ice or chocolate would melt first. We were quite surprised by our results. We worked brilliantly to record the experiment and decided that different solids have different melting points. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Today Elephants were investigating which solids dissolve when mixed with water. First we predicted which solids we thought would dissolve. We then worked in teams to try out each solid in water and record what happened. There were some amazing discussions in the classroom and our scientific vocabulary is impressive! We then wrote up our results to explain what we found out. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

So far in our STEM week, the giraffes have been grouping together materials into solids, liquids and gases.

The Whales had a super scientific day today. They spent the morning studying the water cycle and creating their very own! This afternoon, they had to use their knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to investigate how to separate mixtures from each other - they tried filtration, separation and magnetism!

Last week, the Year 6 Tigers conducted some research, using a range of sources, to find out about what life would have been like for a Victorian child. They found information about the schools, jobs and hobbies at the time before deciding whether or not they would have liked to have been a child during that era. #dcpshistory #dcpscore #DCPStiger Miss Stephenson ...

This week in their Commando Joe session, the Year 6 Tigers worked as a team to build a strategy to break another team’s code.

We had to stay in still organised rows for a solid, we could slowly move about as a liquid and as a gas, we could spread out to fill the space! #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore #dcpslotc ...

This week we explored ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ story and have had a very busy week! We learnt Makaton signs for the story and used them to help us to retell it. We thought about who was in the story and what happened, sorting and counting the food he ate!
The Children loved creating giant pictures of the different food from the story using all sorts of craft materials. We then used those to act out the story using the cocoon that we made whilst wearing caterpillar costumes. We also coloured the pictures and made stick puppets and enjoyed the story stones and matched them to the pictures. #dcpsart #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy

School parking restrictions.

Comment on Facebook

My daughter is now 26 and it was the same then as it is now!Nothing will change, letters are ignored same as Stephenson ignorance is bliss

I've challenged a few drivers over their parking on the path, specifically when they have mounted the pavement whilst I'm still on it, and continuing to drive at me. My son has had his foot run over by a driver, who left the scene without leaving their details. Personally, I think a lot of parents who are driving their kids to school, are doing so because they don't think it's safe to walk, so we have a situation where more parents are driving their kids to school, because of other parents driving their kids to school.

What about those parents who have a blue badge who can legally park on double yellow lines for up to 20 minutes are they allowed to still park there because of a disability meaning they can’t walk as far

The way people drive up that street is crazy. No manner from a lot of people.

Park at Aldi and walk!

I'm glad this has been mentioned, me and my son (in the pram) were walking up Denbigh Avenue at school leaving time a couple of weeks ago, we crossed over radnor gardens, and just as we were about to get onto the path, a car reversed (obviously not looking in mirrors), and we were behind the car, I had to quickly push the pram on the path and then bang on the car window to make her aware we were there 😡, then after the driver argued with me, she then decided to speed away along radnor gardens, when there could have been children crossing aswell 😡

We have been catching up on our science this term, learning about rocks and soils. We have look at different types of rocks and discussed their properties. This then helped us when we discussed fossils and how they are formed. We enjoyed our fossil dance where we pretended to be dinosaurs. We even made some fossils using salt dough. This week we looked at soils and worked well together to conduct and experiment to see which soil would let more water through and discussed why this was. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ...

There is no such thing as bad weather! The Nursery children have loved exploring our outside area in the rain today. We explored size as we looked for the biggest puddle we can jump in and had our own puddle jumping competitions to see who could make the biggest splash. We used our syringes and water squirters to see how high and how far we could make them go. We talked about heavy and light to describe the rain.

Nursery have had an amazing time the last couple of weeks and have really settled in well. We are so proud of them all. This week we have been exploring the season Autumn and the children have loved all the different textures in our Autumn tuff tray.
We have also been painting,colouring , building and riding bikes. We have practised great listening skills, lining up smartly as well as playing and sharing with our friends.
What a fantastic start to the term! Parents can check out more photos via the seesaw app.
