Year 6 Lions have had an excellent start to STEM week thinking about living things and their habitats.

Year 2 Dragons are having an amazing afternoon with Richard - That History Bloke. We have been looking at Victorian artefacts to help us understand what it was like to live over 100 years ago. We have even been lucky enough to hold them and try some of them on! We have also been learning about Victorian jobs. This is getting us ready (and very excited) for our Quayside trip next week. #dcpsdragons #dcpshistory #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Dragons building up their muscles by working on some static balances in P.E today.

Reception trips to the woods begin tomorrow. 28 of our children will get to go, then a further 28 the following week. Please make sure children have waterproofs and wellies in school for when they visit.
Children are able to wear jogging bottoms and trainers with their school jumpers on Wednesday as these are more comfortable in the woods.
