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), Mrs Edwards and Mr Bellamy (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. Due to the necessary drop off and pick up arrangements please email any questions, messages or news to the office and I will respond via email or 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.

This half term we have been enjoying the Mr Gumpy stories. In art we mixed our own colours to create a wash and then drew some of the characters from the story. We used pencils, pastels and wax crayons to colour in within the lines. We used blending, hatching and cross hatching to build up the colours.

We had a fantastic time during Forest School. We loved learning in our wonderful outdoor space and exploring our woodland walk.

In science we made the most of the early Autumn sunshine and headed out on to the playground to learn about shadows. We revisited the same spot at different times throughout the day to record how a shadow changed.
This half term we have been learning about our five senses and our amazing bodies in science.
What a spooky finish to a super first half term in Doves. It was lovely to see all the children dressed up. They were so excited and had great fun. Thank you for supporting this PTA event. We hope you have a good half term break and we look forward to welcoming you all back for another fun filled half term.
