Our resident Dino musicians wowed me this morning with how quickly they were able to pick up playing a brand new tune on the recorders. They can now confidently read music without the names of the notes being shown (something Mrs Candlish can’t do). These children are just amazing 😁

This morning Y2 were looking at common exception words. We practiced reading the words then played a memory game to see if we could remember what the words were and which one was missing. Naturally we ramped up the challenge by having to spell the missing word correctly without looking at it to win a point. Fantastic learning all round. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsdragon #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Today Y2 were all about taking their learning outside (it’s a shame we picked the chilliest day of the term so far to do it but the children showed off their resilience and braved the elements regardless). We started our morning with applying our learning about adding two numbers together using a column method to playing a game. We had to add the scores together to find out who won the game. This afternoon we practiced our spellings by challenging our partner to spell a word using water and paintbrushes. Not only great fun but it really got us thinking about using the spelling patterns we knew to spell a different word. Fantastic learning from all the Dinos. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsmaths #dcpsenglish #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Harvest Festival this year. The amount of food donated to the Bay Foodbank was phenomenal and we are overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. It took several attempts to squeeze all of your donations into the van! Ha-ha! You are all amazing!
We also celebrated Harvest by welcoming Reverend Sue and Reverend Kim into our assembly, ‘A bowlful of Harvest’ and sang some of our favourite Harvest songs ‘Cauliflowers Fluffy’ and ‘Harvest for the World’. #dcpsRE #dcpscollectiveworship #dcpscore

This week the full time nursery have enjoyed listening to the story ‘What’s in the witch’s kitchen’. We used tweezers to free all the spiders from the spider web and practised drawing our own spider webs using anti-clockwise circles. We had lots of fun created our own magic potions using water and flavoured tea as well as a range of Halloween objects and talked about what our potions would do. We also had lots of fun exploring and carving our own pumpkins as well as creating our own pumpkin crafts #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcps30hours #dcpsliteracy #dcpsSTEM ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 Panda class had a lovely time during our PSHE lesson last week. The children listened to the story ‘The Colour Monster’ and we discussed the range of emotions that the monster felt through the story. We then thought of lots of ways to make ourselves feel yellow (happy). #dcpspanda #dcpspshe #dcpslifeskills #mentalhealthawarenessweek ... See MoreSee Less

In DT today Elephants found out all about Charles Macintosh and the development of waterproof fabric. We applied this knowledge by thinking about how we could make paper waterproof. We used wax crayons, oil pastels, plastic sheets and cling film to cover our paper, the tricky part was folding the paper into a boat! We were really impressed by how well the oil pastels worked! #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 Giraffes have had a great afternoon taking part in a Worry workshop with Big Foot. We learnt all about worries, it is okay to have worries as long as we know how to help ourselves shrink these and we know how to cope with them. We talked about our well being and how we can make sure that our well-being is top of our priorities. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpscore #dcpslifeskills ... See MoreSee Less

Pudsey Day! 🥰

Over the last few weeks the nursery children have been exploring the changes that occur in autumn by going on a leaf hunt and exploring our autumn tuff trays. They have made their own leaf pictures as well as created a their own autumn wreaths and scarecrows to keep the birds from eating the seeds we are planting next week (but don’t worry we will be making our own bird feeders too).
We have begun learning about harvest and why we celebrate this festival by listening to the story of the very helpful hedgehog. We have loved learning our new harvest songs and exploring a range of fruits and vegetables that the farmers have picked especially for us! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcps30hours #dcpsstem #dcpsre

In PE, Reception loved playing some of our fun agility games to develop their speed and coordination. Cups and cones, sharks in the water and the new game ‘toilet’ were firm favourites this week.

Reception had another fantastic trip to the woods on Wednesday. We collected and observed different types of leaves and even made our own leaf wands (or leaf kebabs as Mrs Clark referred to them as!) We also discovered ‘giant dinosaur footprints’ and showed no fear climbing trees. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsLOTC ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 continued with their British Inventors DT unit today, learning all about reinforced concrete. We were amazed to learned that it’s inventor was W.B Wilkinson who was a plasterer from Newcastle! We had great fun trying out various structures to see how reinforcing them made them stronger. We then put our knowledge to the test by trying build structures from newspaper and tape that would hold a dictionary, some were more successful than others. #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpscore ...

Elephants started their DT week and we are learning all about British Inventors. The start we found out all about the invention of the telephone. We have fun looking at different types of telephone and we’re stunned that you actually use a dial to enter someone’s number, rather than just a touch screen. We also acted out the first type of communication device by being speakers and copper wire. We also investigated string telephones. Next we found out about the World Wide Web and were amazed at what websites used to look like, no lovely pictures and easy to use menus! #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants loved their STEM week and are now experts in classification keys and using them to sort and identify species. We finished the week by thinking about environmental dangers living things might face, including endangered species.

This week in nursery we have been exploring Autumn and harvest festival.
While exploring autumn we talked about the change in weather, what happens to some trees, made clay hedgehogs and explored various autumnal vegetables.
With Alexander ( the puppet) we talked about how the harvest festival is all about helping others. We helped him to think of ways to be a better friend and we all agreed having kind hands in Nursery is important! We have spent the week helping our friends and talking about how to help others in our lives.

Today the Dinos talked about ways we can make ourselves feel good when we feel one of the unpleasant emotions such as angry, sad or lonely. The general consensus is that a hug is our number one choice followed by doing an activity with someone else.
