Welcome to Doves Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Mrs Silverton (Class Teacher), Mrs Gould (Class Teacher) and Mrs Cordes (Class Teaching Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please find below a photo learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been getting up to.

In D.T. we enjoyed designing and then making our own Funny Bones puppets. Out puppets moved using split pin pivots.

Making donations to Children in Need with the help of our cuddly friends.

British Values Day

During values day we had the chance to vote for how we would like money to be used to resource a quiet space for playtime. We listened to each party and how they would put the funds to good use. Throughout the day Year One learnt about the British Value - Rule of Law. We had a visit from a Police Community Support Worker. She told us all about the rules we have and how the police help keep us safe in our community. We had lots of good questions and she said that they were some of the best she had ever been asked. Well done Year One! 

Super Senses

In Science we enjoyed testing our reaction times. We held a piece of card above our partners hands and then we dropped it. We watched carefully to see if our partner could react quickly enough to catch it between their hands.  

Our Fantastic Firework Wow Day!

We had great fun when we came to school dressed in bright colourful clothes for our Firework Wow Day. During the day we made rocket book marks, drew firework displays with chalk pastels, used the laptops to create a firework picture and made sparkler biscuits to enjoy with a hot chocolate at the end of the day. Spectacular!

In maths we made addition equations.

We really enjoyed trying out some Judo. It was great fun!

In Art we had fun mixing colours to paint our own colour wheels.

We took a walk to the post box to post our invitations to our grandparents , inviting them to Grandparents' afternoon.

In Science we drew around each other to make life sized outlines. We labelled these with different parts of the human body.

In Art we used careful observation, and then mixed colours, to paint our self-portraits.

In Science we took advantage of the wonderful sunny autumn weather we are having and went outside to learn all about shadows. We mapped a shadow over the course of a day to see how it changed and then had fun making our shadows in to shapes for our friends to draw round.

In Geography we had great fun following a map of the school grounds so we could find and compare different environmental features.
