Team Dahl Activities

Geography – Features of Our School

We worked very hard in Geography, using fieldwork skills to identify and record the main features of our school grounds 😀

Art – Flora & Fauna

In art we looked at artists who are inspired by Flora & Fauna. The artists use drawing as a way to accurately capture the way plants and animals look.
Our wonderful artwork is inspired by Flora & Fauna, also our own imagination. We used careful looking to build on our drawing skills to add detail.

Euro’s 2024

Lots of fun & excitement we’ve had at our Euros 2024 tournament!

English – Book Making

Working hard in English to write & illustrate our own versions of our core text, ‘Claude in the City’ by Alex T. Smith.
We’ve rewritten the story using story maps to plan our new adventures for Claude and we’re producing our final books. 📚
Amazing authors! 😀⭐️

English – Extended Writing

Working hard in English imagining we are the character Claude and writing letters in the first person.

PSHE – Emergency, phone 999

In PSHE we having been finding out what an emergency is and how to make a phone call if needed.
We talked about different situations eg: someone is badly hurt or a serious accident. We discuss the different emergency services, explaining about each service and what they do.
In groups we sorted some emergency scenarios, thinking about what service we would need to call. Then came back together and watched a video from the police service about what to do in an emergency.
In pairs we role-played dialling 999 and being the operator using some phones.

Science – The Human Body

In Science as part of our topic of ‘Animals including Humans’ we have been looking at the human body.
We enjoyed playing body Bingo in the sunshine to help us name and identify body parts. We then went on to draw a human body and label as many body parts as we could.

Bowslees Farm Visit

We had a fun-filled day at Bowlees Farm!
The children have worked with Gemma, the farmer, to feed the cows, sheep, goats, pigs, lambs and horses.
We enjoyed a long walk through the countryside & woods, admiring the views & spotting the bluebells and feeding the sheep in the fields along the way.
We then loved meeting some of the smaller animals such as rabbits, chinchillas and guinea pigs. We were thrilled when a few chickens & a parrot joined us for lunch! 😀
A big thank you to our parent helpers – we couldn’t enjoy such lovely days out without you! 😊
Well done to all of the children for their hard work on the farm.

P.E. – Rounders

A very fun & competitive game of Rounders in P.E!

Easter Chicks

A lovely Easter treat in Team Dahl with some VIP visitors 🐣
A huge thank you to Becky (Zach & Jake’s mum) for bringing the chicks in to meet the children!

Art – Van Gogh, Starry Night

We have been working hard in Art learning about the artist Vincent Van Gogh. We found out that Van Gogh used unique brushstrokes & thick paint to make the objects in his paintings look full of life. We enjoyed experimenting with paint mixing to create different shades of blue and yellow to create our own paintings inspired by one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, ‘Starry Night’.


Wow! Super proud of all the children in Team Dahl after an outstanding performance of Michael Rosen’s ‘Rhythm of Life’ in Celebration Assembly.
We were thrilled to be Mr Christie’s ‘Team of the Week’ after all of our hard work & fantastic attitudes this week. Superstars!
Be proud, Team Dahl! ⭐️

English – Poems to Perform

Having lots of fun in English working in groups to improve our performances of ‘Hand on the Bridge’ using instruments.

Weekly Value – Resilience

In school our weekly value this week (w.c. 8.1.24) is ‘Resilience’. Team Dahl have enjoyed reading the story ‘Jabari Tries’ which is all about Jabari, a little boy who is trying to build an aeroplane. Even though it’s very tricky & there are difficulties along the way, Jabari does not give up!
We enjoyed a great discussion about how Jabari showed resilience and what helped him to do so. We had fun designing our own ‘positive thinking caps’ with some great slogans to help us to be resilient when times are tough.


Wow! Year 2 have worked super hard in Maths  learning written methods for adding two 2-digit numbers, crossing 10. Well done, Y2!⭐️


A busy start to the year in Team Dahl! ⭐️
Happy New Year, everyone!

Make a Noise About Bullying!

Team Dahl had lots of fun while making a music video with BigFoot Arts to promote the importance of making a noise about bullying!

English – Making Predictions

In English we’ve been introduced to our new core text. The cover of the book has been wrapped up so children don’t know the title or author, and can’t see the illustrations.
We’ve sneaked a peek at the opening page and children enjoyed a discussion about the pictures, looking closely to respond to what they can see and make inferences & predictions by considering key questions such as; where is this place? What is it like? How do you know? Would you like to go there? Why/why not? Have you ever been somewhere like this? How might it feel to be there?

Maths Week

Team Dahl enjoyed a fun number bond challenge as part of Maths Week England.
The theme this year was ‘3 is the magic number’, so in teams of 3 we challenged ourselves to see how many number bonds to & within 10 we could find in 60 seconds. It was very competitive!
Finally, our top 3 teams battled it out to be the Number Bond Champions!
We had a tie with two teams scoring 32 – well done, Team Dahl!

P.E. – Yoga

We enjoyed yoga with Beth, working on making our bodies strong and flexible. We learned lots of new poses, played games and had some relaxation.

Art – Explore & Draw

We love art in Team Dahl! We have started our new art topic – Explore & Draw.
The children were introduced to the idea that artists are inspired by the world around them. We looked at various artists to help the children understand that by exploring our environment with ‘fresh eyes’ and curiosity we can find inspiration for our artwork.
We got active and went outside to collect and create. We played with objects to create new shapes and patterns on the ground using different things like twigs, leaves and bark.
We then gathered everything up and went back to the classroom and explored composition and arrangement on table tops.

Black History Month

We created some fantastic posters for display to show off  the work we’ve been doing for Black History Month.

Team Dahl Assembly

A big well done to Team Dahl after a fantastic assembly! We loved sharing our excellent penguin fact files & life cycle writing with the rest of the school.
