Easter Holidays

posted 26 Mar 2020, 11:11 by Sarah Drazek

Hello everyone,

As we know, next week marks the start of the Easter Holidays (but not as we have ever known them before).  We appreciate that some of you will be finding your own ways of keeping your families happy and healthy and that others will appreciate a little more structure and guidance. With that in mind, we are providing some ideas for learning for the two weeks of the Easter Holidays. The whole school community (whether at home or in school) will have the same theme; by doing this we will be able to share and celebrate some of your creative endeavours on our new school Face Book page (Dore Primary Community Page- you will have received an email invite). Please, do not at all feel pressured in any way to see this as a check list or a requirement (no one is checking!). At this moment in time the best thing to do is whatever is best for your family.

 Easter Holidays Week 1     –    The Wind in the Willows (see A4 page)

-      Create a ‘Sunshine’ to display in your windows

 Easter Holidays Week 2    –    The Time we spring cleaned the world (see A4 page)

-      Create an ‘Easter’ picture to display in your windows

 Just a reminder of other key recommendations:

 Watch this space….. Mr Percy has some ideas to write/ produce a song.

Geography Fieldwork

posted 12 Mar 2020, 10:54 by Oliver Mills

Year 6 have been carrying out Geography fieldwork as part of our Into The Wild topic. Pupils conducted a land survey using quadrats, choosing to sample different areas around The Rec. The children found that the species of plants and coverage of grass varied greatly depending on the area sampled; this was linked back to prior learning on Anglo-Saxon farming in the area. It also confirmed that there are few spring bulbs and flowers at The Rec; we hope to add some additional flora as part of our project to increase biodiversity in the area.
