🎶If you go down on the yard today.......🎶 You’ll see 29 Dinosaurs ravenously devouring their fruit skewers and vanilla cookies which they made for their picnic. Forget about cute teddy bears, this lot can tear through a strawberry like no one else!
A fantastic afternoon, the “best part of the week” and a spot of tree hugging to finish. Brilliant 👍🏻

Reception explored 'Denbighlandia' last week and to be honest were little dare Devils showing no fear when jumping, climbing and crawling through the tunnels. As you can see by their faces, it was a total hit! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpsLOTC ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 have had “the best day ever” (an actual quote from the children themselves) for our DT topic. We have planned and designed the food for our teddy bear picnic and devoured it in a matter of minutes. #dcpsdragons #dcpslotc #dcpsdt ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 Dragons were very lucky to visit the Apple store yesterday. We had the chance to use special Apple pens to draw using layering and also explore GarageBand to create some beats! Listening to the music that the children created was amazing - every piece had their own style! #dcpsdragon #dcpslotc #dcpsictforlearning ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 Tigers, and some Lions, really enjoyed our day at the beach. Surfing was a huge hit! The children showed a huge amount of resilience... and that was just getting the wet suits on...compared to that the surfing was easy!!! You gave 100% effort today, well done. #dcpstigers #dcpslions #dcpslotc #dcpspe ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 continued their learning outdoors in their maths lesson. We measured EVERYTHING on the field and yard using a range of equipment. We are now measuring experts. #dcpsdinosaurs #dcpsdragons #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 took their learning outside today and had a marvellous time spelling some tricky words using water. It didn’t matter if we made a mistake - the sun soon dried it up. We used lots of strategies to help us with our spelling.

More photos of Year 6 trip to Marsden Rock as part of our coasts topic. The follow up iMovie, pic collage and key notes have shown how great their learning was and how much geographical understanding they have. Well done! #dcpstigers #dcpslions #dcpslotc #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 had a great day at Marsden Bay today putting all of our learning this week into practice. We were looking for signs of coastal erosion and how the beaches in this area are formed. We had a great time! Mrs Scott and Mrs Hammill #dcpslions #dcpstigers #dcpslotc #dcpsgeography ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 Polar Bears have had an amazing day exploring at Kirkley Hall Zoo. They have had a fun packed day, discovering lots of different animal species, spending time petting rabbits and guinea pigs and became little mini beast hunters. They even had time to have a well deserved break in the adventure playground. Well done Polar Bears you were all fantastic! Miss Phillips. #dcpspb #dcpsstem #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Woodensday again, where did that week go? So today we approached our trip a little differently, we decided to explore the wider park for signs of Spring. We looked fed the ducks and some boys and girls were able to explain how they knew some ducks were male and some female. We walked along the burn looking for ducklings, unfortunately they were hidden today. We found a great hill for ‘sausage rolls’ and danced in the ‘snow’ as the blossom blew from trees. Finally we made a sticky collection, looked for leaves we thought were interesting and petals that had been blown down. We also found some really scented wild garlic plants that we loved sniffing. Some of us might have brought some home on our sticky collection cards so have a sniff! #eyfsdcps #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

Ladybirds jumped on the dinosaur measuring bandwagon today and chose to find out how long a T Rex would have been. We were amazed to find out that it would have been up to 12m long (so about 12 kiddywinks) and 6m tall. Not as long or tall as an Apatosaurus but just as impressive! #dcpsladybird #dcpseyfs #dcpsLOTC ... See MoreSee Less

The Reception children loved exploring the field today with our fantastic OPAL equipment. From hiding in tyres to building sand castles, finding dinosaur bones and fossils in the mud crater to dressing up and chilling on the deckchairs. A lovely way to start the morning! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsEYFS #dcpsLOTC ... See MoreSee Less

We are learning all about dinosaurs in Reception just now. We learnt that an Apatosaurus was 23 metres long from nose to tail. It’s hard to understand how big that is when you are four and five, so we went outside to see how long it actually is... #dcpseyfs #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Woodensday! And today, along with everything else we love to do, we had a fire! We were fantastic at following the rules, staying outside the circle, kneeling down when were close and only adding sticks one at a time. We learnt that the sticks that burn best are really dry and you can find them by breaking sticks in two, if it makes a loud crack it’s dry and perfect for a fire. We then began to see how other things we found burnt, so we added feathers, leaves and bark. We loved watching and making predictions. We were so impressed with how inquisitive and sensible the children were around the fire. Denbigh superstars! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

The Nursery children had another fantastic week at forest school. The morning child were very interest in searching for feathers and we did some bird spotting to see if we could find the birds the feathers belong to. The afternoon children were more interested in creating their own stick puppets and put on a fantastic show for each other as well as creating their own mud slide and getting stick in the mud #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc ...

Happy Woodensday! Fantastic day in the woods for the reception children. We were exploring new growth, looking at leaves and buds, running everywhere and looking for bugs. The children this morning played a fantastic game of ‘cats scared of scooters’ which despite not sounding like everyone’s cup of tea, engaged nearly all the children! They explored so many little enclosed areas of the woods creating different scenes for their game. A couple of children decided to made a house for the three pigs that was camouflaged so the wolf wouldn’t see it when he came huffing and puffing along. One child even drew a map to the camouflage house for the pigs back at school. This afternoon we were very focussed on digging and making holes. We found one hole that was so long we lost our spade at the bottom! Thankfully it was rescued by a long grown up arm. On the way back to the bus some boys and girls found an amazing thing with one of the park wardens. There was a little sphere with a hole in which looked just like a seed pod. We were amazed to learn that gull wasps encourage oak trees to create these little pods, or Oak Apples to give them their official title, and then the wasps make holes in them to lay eggs. (Or at least that was my loose interpretation - please see the link below for actual facts!) #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

The Nursery children had a fantastic time at forest school. We used sticks to make Cuthbert the Bear some new friends to play with, searched for mini-beasts, did some bird watching, practised our balancing skills when walking on the slack line, climbed mountains, made houses and played hide and seek amongst other things. Wow! We had such a busy day #dcpscaterpillars #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
