The last science club of the term. Santa had arrived at a house to find no tree! There were a stack of cups on the floor though. The children set to work trying to build a tree out of cups for Santa to put presents under. We tried to see how high we make it, thinking carefully about how to make it stable enough that it didn’t fall over! #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

A busy week this week for Dragons, after getting to grips with temperature, we moved on to pictograms. We made a human graph to show how we get to school, then made our own choosing different questions such as eye colour, who has school dinners and when our birthdays are. #dcpsdragon #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ...

Elephants are creating their final pieces of art. We have worked on showing facial expressions in our sketches of Medusa. We are now adding colour to reflect a certain mood.

The Elephants loved analysing a winter setting description today. To help us understand the vocabulary from the description, we focused on a word’s meaning, word class and then applied it to a sentence of our own. We used our tables to help us write all of this down which will help us draft our own winter setting description! #dcpselephant #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Earlier this week, Lion class were combing their knowledge of Music, Computing, DT and Science to create a Christmas object that would entertain others. First, we used our DT knowledge to create a decorative unit for the equipment. Then, we used our coding skills and ability to read music to create some Christmas songs using Microbits. Can you guess our tune?

Year 6 Tigers have had a great day working alongside Mr Brown to create their own singing Christmas decorations. This morning, they worked to a brief to design and create their prototypes before moving onto the computing task. They used Microbits to bring their Christmas decoration to life by coding them to display messages and play a Christmas tune. They were able to read musical notation to code their Microbits to play the correct notes. What a great day! Miss Stephenson #dcpsmusic #DCPStiger #dcpsdt #dcpscomputing #dcpsict ...

This week in Nursery we have been exploring size. We explored what the word size meant and explored the words big and small. We thought of many things that are bigger than us and then smaller than us.

We had a lush day in the woods today, despite the weather. It might have been a bit muddy (sorry for the washing grown-ups) but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We threw ‘pooh sticks’ just like in the story of Stickman we are reading just now and waited to see which stick travelled the fastest. We made fires and experimented to see how different things burnt, wet leaves, dry leaves, tissues... We also looked for good sticks to put on the fire, they had to be dry and make a snap sound.
