Today reception thoroughly enjoyed learning all about ‘The Christmas Story,’ and discovering why Christmas is celebrated by so many people around the world. The children did a great job of acting out the nativity, during our helicopter story session this afternoon. We discussed how this is a celebration to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who, according to the Christian religion, is the son of God. The children enjoyed retelling the story using the small word characters, showing great recall of the nativity. #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsEYFS #dcpsre #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Since September Year 3 have been learning and recapping the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. They are times table wizards! To help consolidate knowledge they made their own counting sticks and played calculation games to test their partner on their times table knowledge. It was so much fun! #dcpscore #dcpsturtle #dcpslizard #dcpsmaths ... See MoreSee Less
Year 3 Turtles have started their new oracy unit in English. By the end of the unit we will be performing a promotional video to sell a Stone Age house to a Stone Age person. We started off the unit by hot seating as a Stone Age person and played oracy games to get ourselves warmed up for all the talking we will be doing. #dcpscore #dcpsturtle #dcpsenglish #dcpsoracy ...

Year 4 Giraffes have been busy this week with their new Oracy unit based around poetry. We have started the unit by listening to a range of poems read by different poets thinking about their purpose, audience and considering if we like them or not. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ...

Reception have thoroughly enjoyed exploring our new topic that is all about taking care of our teeth. We read the story ‘Alan’s big scary teeth,’ about a very unhelpful alligator who lost his teeth after scaring all of the animals in the story. The children made their own maps to help Alan find his teeth and thought up ways he could use his teeth to help others instead of frightening people. The children came up with some great ideas such as, gardening shears and hairdressers scissors to name a few! This led nicely into our topic lesson where we discussed what we need to do to keep our teeth healthy, we discussed how we need to brush our teeth twice a day and have a healthy, balanced diet. The children were able to sort the correct food items on the healthy teeth boards, showing which foods are super healthy and what foods we should eat in moderation. We also enjoyed exploring the dentist equipment kit with the play dough and practicing cleaning our teeth with the toothbrushes on the giant teeth. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpscore ...
