The Whales had a busy week last week. This is them putting their programming and coding skills to the test, creating their own version of a game called pong. The children were imaginative, creative and reflected on what worked well/what didn’t work well. Well done Whales #dcpswhale #dcpscomputing #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Y5 Dolphins had another fantastic steel pan drum lesson with Holly last week. They focused on rhythm and melody when learning traditional Caribbean calypso music, and worked well in their groups to help each other remember the right notes - excellent networking skills and determination from everyone! Here’s a sneak peek of them playing ’Sunshine Soca’ #dcpscore #dcpsdolphins #dcpsmusic ... See MoreSee Less

Today, Y5 had a practical maths lesson to help them better understand place value when adding and subtracting decimals. Various sums were put on the board and the class had to put themselves and their digits in the right place value column to help them find the answers. Everyone did really well and we can already see their confidence growing with this - smashed it! #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpsdolphins #dcpswhales #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

In Year 4 we are developing our Oracy skills. This week we completed an Oracy unit, starting by discussing why Oracy is important and playing some games to get us talking, listening and thinking. We then used our skills to help us answer our key question in our R.E topic, ‘How and why do people show care for others’. We worked brilliantly, researching different religions, listening to others and creating our presentations, which we then delivered to the class. #dcpselephant #dcpsre #dcpsoracy #dcpscore ...

This week in nursery we have been exploring the traditional tale The three little pigs. We built houses from blocks and Lego, explored different materials and used Makaton to retell the story. This week’s story detective mystery was… where are the missing pigs? After looking at clues and after speaking to The Big Bad Wolf we solved the mystery and helped Mr wolf to make things better ( the children suggested he should go shopping or to the chippe instead) . #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy #dcpssrem #dcpseyfs ...

Year 4 Giraffes have continued to develop their SPaG skills this week to help with their Talk for Writing unit. We have been thinking about apostrophes and how we use them in our writing to show possession and contractions. We created a rule mat to follow and then used this to rewrite sentences correctly. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Reception were exploring the theme ‘Loneliness’ as part of Mental Health Week and listened to a beautiful story called ‘The Visitor’ by Antje Damm. The story was about a lady who lived by herself and was very lonely until a paper plane accidentally flew into her window! The plane was made by a little boy and when he went to collect it, he began talking to the lady and befriending her. We spoke about how we could help others if they were feeling lonely by visiting them, talking to them, giving them cuddles etc. We then made our own paper planes with lovely messages to send to our friends. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpspshe #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek ...

In Reception we have been learning about ‘still life’ drawing. We have been choosing different objects, looking at them very carefully, thinking about shapes, sizes and colours. We have tried to copy them as carefully as possible using paints, pencils and pastels. #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

THIEVES!!!
The latest instalment in our mystery book had the boy’s unguarded treasures (specks) being stolen. We were shocked to see this chaos that met us yesterday morning with our own specks missing!!!
We duly completed crime scene reports detailing the incident and listing potential suspects and their motives.
Today, just like the boy in the story, we made guardians to help protect our specks from further danger. We are sure they’ll be safe now 🤞🏻

Today we have decorated stones to hide around the garden for our friends to find, made some bird feeders and placed them on the trees, demonstrated our balancing skills whilst riding around the track on a range of bikes, practised our self help skills whilst we dressed up and had our music lesson outdoors. The children loved being outside and exploring our opal play equipment. We cannot wait for the rest of the week! #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This week Y2 have started reading a mystery book - the mystery is that we don’t know what the title is. In the book a boy finds a strange old box and oddly enough a box which fit the same description appeared in the classroom. The Dinos worked together to put on their De Bono thinking hats and consider what they knew about the box and whether or not it would be a good idea to open it. Great networking by all #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This morning the Dinos tried out some picnic foods as part of their DT unit. They were very brave trying out foods they’d never had before. The lentil curls and falafels went down quite well but we were not a fan of olives, feta cheese or gherkins. Well done Y2 for giving it a go #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsdt #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants had another brilliant morning with Robbie. Working on team building skills, they had to try and sink each other’s battleships.

This week the full time nursery children have been exploring pattern through our jungle theme. We looked closely at the different animal patterns and sorted the animals depending if they had spots, stripes or no pattern. We then had a go at creating animal patterns using strips of card, pens and paint. We even had a go at copying and creating our own patterns using stickers and are beginning to explore patterns outside in nature #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpsmath #dcpscore ...

This term in RE Year 1 are learning all about Buddhism. After listening to the story of Buddha and the injured swan we discussed the belief that Buddhists show kindness to all living things including animals. We decided to explore this belief as a class and discussed ways in which we can show kindness to animals. The children checked on our rabbits and made sure they had enough food and water, made bird feeders to hang up in our garden and were so gentle when looking after our baby chicks. We even made some posters to tell others how to look after the baby chicks! #dcpspanda #dcpspolarbear #dcpsre #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants had a fantastic time at Segedunum today. We are taking part in an art project as part of the celebration of 1900 years of Hadrian’s Wall. As a year group we are developing an piece of art work which will go on display at the museum. First we made our own sketch book to record our ideas as we went around the fort. We saw parts of the original wall and talked about why the wall was built. In the afternoon we used metal foil (being careful with our fingers) to start producing the pieces for our final display. We all worked really hard and are looking forward to finishing our pieces at school. We were treated to an amazing view from the viewing tower before returning to school. #dcpselephant #dcpshistory #dcpsart #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
