Dove Class is a vibrant and creative place, where children enjoy expressing both their artistic sides and exercising their investigative skills
We like being in Dove class because we learn lots about the world around us and we spend time developing the qualities we’ll need to make our own mark in the world!
We love stories and we really enjoy listening to our teacher reading our class book as much as possible.
We also really like our creative homework projects, and we proudly display these in our classroom.
We need children to arrive at 5:40pm (no earlier) and come straight into the classroom block. Come dressed in costumes. Costumes are not needed during the school day. Thank you.
Doves spent a lovely afternoon in the sun, painting ‘en plain air’ in the style of Monet. They really tried to capture the essence of Monet’s impressionist style in their brushwork and colour blending. We will be finishing this work after half term; hopefully the weather holds out! Bravo, Doves!

We then made lava lamps and observed how oil and water don’t mix due to their difference in density. Finally, we investigated the effect of washing up liquid … Read more
KS2 came together to perform poetry they had learnt during the week. They were all very brave and recited there chosen poem, performing it with expression and some actions to make it exciting to watch. Well done to all involved!
We were all lucky enough to visit the planetarium at Stibbard today, where children learnt about our solar system and constellations. We are sure this will inspire some fantastic space poetry as part of our book week activities. Many thanks to Stibbard for inviting us!
As part of Book Week, Doves took part in a reading ‘restaurant’, where they sampled and discussed lots of their classmates’ favourite books. They then created a menu of their top three choices.
Dear Parents/ Carers, Over the past couple of days there has been quite a bit of concern raised by both adults and children about the ‘Momo Challenge’ which appears to have gone viral and caused quite a stir. Having looked into it, it appears to be a hoax but the worry it has caused is … Read more
An information letter about a meme called ‘Momo’ is coming home today to KS2 children. Please ensure you read it. It is a rather disturbing but FAKE viral news story going round at the moment.
