Weekly Report:28/11/17

This week has been a very busy one for all of us at Dovedale so we have not been to as many classes as usual, so instead we are focussing o all that has been happening and what we have enjoyed in Year 5 and Year 6.

This week 6C had a fantastic Geography lesson! 6C used atlases to discover where minerals are found. They also made magnificent mind-maps and great graffiti pages!  George , who is a pupil  from 6C , said he really enjoys Geography  especially the lessons year six do!

This week I enjoyed my History lesson about the ancient Maya.

This week I have really enjoyed learning about The Maya houses.

The lesson we had for English this week was about Charles Dickens, and I really enjoyed it; we were able to discover more about one of the world’s greatest author.

This week we enjoyed making iMovies about inverted commas. 

This week I enjoyed doing measuring in Science.

We hope you had just as much fun as we have whatever year you are in!


Weekly Report: 21/11/17

Over the week, 1D learnt about animals and where they come from. They learnt a song about which countries certain animals come from. Their focus animal was a panda. They got given pictures to colour in freely.

Miss Davies also put Japanese music on because pandas originate from Japan. Pandas are also one of the many endangered animals in are world. The children were encouraged to learn their world’s animal song for their next Geography lesson. The children found this lesson both enjoyable and creative.

1D were creating handimals (hand animals ) by painting their hands and pressing it onto a piece of card before creating it into their very own animal. The most popular animal to make was a tiger, since tigers are stripy. They really enjoyed this lesson and some commented that it was both fun and exciting, they can’t wait to do this again!

Across Y2 we saw: 2S doing a Y2 maths project, 2G were celebrating their differences and 2D making handprints to celebrate their differences. 2D used bright, cheerful colours and glitter. All of the classes were working hard and enjoying their lessons. Well done Year 2!


Weekly Report:14/11/17


Last week, we saw reception making shape monsters out of 2D shapes. So if it had four sides it would have the corresponding amount of facial features. We discovered them making cards with glitter, sequins and more. They were also making dens out of a camouflage sheet and some wood.

Last week,1C were talking about what life was like for their grandparents when they were young. Some of the children were talking about the difference between things we have now like phones, iPads televisions and more vs what are grandparents had like no phones, no iPads and no televisions.

This week, 3WM were learning about the Stone Age. They discussed facts about the Stone Age as well as colouring in pictures of cavemen. They also learnt about the materials of the clothes that the cave men and women wore. They expressed pure joy about starting a new topic.

We saw year 4 doing lots of writing work and so were Year 5.Year 5 were writing their own version of The Return to Oz. Year 6 have also been busy writing action stories. Well done for all of your hard work guys!


Weekly Report:31/10/17

As some of you may know, The Inside Scoop have been visiting your class throughout the week as part of our role as roaming reporters. The job of a roaming reporter is to report on what is going on in the classroom which is then posted onto Twitter for your parents to see. We look forward to seeing all of your lovely work soon; this is what we found in the last week before our lovely break:

In the last week of half term the school had a history focus, in the infants the children were looking at local history and juniors looked at Black History week.

Reception’s focus was on local history and they looked at Liverpool landmarks and then painted their favourite. They learnt about The Beatles and sang along to ‘yellow submarine’ and made their own yellow submarines with their handprints.

Year 2 were also creating famous landmarks such as the Liver building, radio city tower and the Albert Dock as part of their work for history week. The feedback from the children was that they really enjoyed the creative aspect of the lesson.

In Year 3 and Year 4 we were able to visit during their Literacy lessons. In 3B, the class were learning about subordinating clauses, conjunctions and main clauses. The children’s feedback was that the lesson was rather challenging but that they felt they were becoming better with this area of writing.

In 4T, the children were learning about the features of a newspaper report so that they could fill their brains with knowledge ready for Friday’s big write. The class were so well behaved and we were astonished!

In our first week back to school, we have managed to squeeze in another roaming reporter session and we visited Year 3. In 3D we witnessed lots of learning about e-safety. The children designed their own creative ‘Think before you click’ posters to show how you can be safe online. We also saw 3D’s very first French lesson! Miss Doherty posed queries to the class in French and they soon got the hang of the new language. The children commented that they can’t wait to find out more and further their understanding of French.


Thank you for reading or weekly report, we hope you enjoyed it!

Weekly Report: 17/10/17


A big hello from the new Inside Scoop team! This is our first weekly report after a couple of weeks of preparing ourselves on all matters related to the club: we have compiled a list of question to use in our staff interviews; we have wrote information about ourselves to give our readers facts about the team and our reasons for joining; we have been getting into teams for our roaming reporters roles (watch out we will be about soon!) and finally we thought of a topic for our first big report.  This week we have interviewed Mrs Milton and you can read this on the interview section of our webpage. We hope you enjoy reading all about your new roaming reporters and the interview we conducted with Mrs Milton. Have a lovely half-term!
