Welcome to Doves Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. We are very pleased to welcome you to our class page and we are looking forward to working with you and being part of your child's Year One learning journey.
The adults in Doves this year Mrs Silverton (teacher), Mrs Cordes (learning support assistant) and Mrs Fletcher(1:1 learning support assistants). We are always happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have and we love to hear about your child's celebrations and achievements outside of school. Quick messages can be handed over at drop off or pick up. Please email any other questions, messages or news to the office and I will respond via email or a telephone call.
Please find below a photograph learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been doing. We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and that they give you the chance to talk to your child about their learning and share in their experiences at school.
Non-School Uniform Day.
We had a fun spooky start to the last day of the half term. The children looked great in their costumes. Thank you so much for supporting this PTA event.
Our Walk to the Post Box
To finish our Jolly Postman topic we spent some time writing letters and addressing envelopes. We then walked to our local post box to post them. When we got back to school we found out what happens to letters once they have been posted.
We hope that the letters arrived safely and that you enjoyed the post from your child.
Thank you to all the parents and children for taking part in our Numbot Day. We were amazed by all the amazing costumes and robot related T-shirts. The children had fun taking part in robot related maths work and games. We are thrilled to hear you are enjoying Numbots at home and working your way through the levels.
We had a fantastic time during Forest School. We loved learning in our wonderful outdoor space and exploring our woodland walk.
In art we have been drawing self portraits. We started by looking at some famous paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and explored how colours can match different moods and emotions. We created our backgrounds by mixing primary colours and exploring ways to make different shades. We used a range of sponges and brushes to get different effects for our background. We then drew our portraits and used mirrors and guidelines to help put our eyes, ears, nose and mouth in the right places. As we were painting our features we selected the correct sized brushes to help us paint in the lines and add detail. We enjoyed looking at each others finished self portraits. We hope you enjoy seeing them too.
