Home learning – PowerPoints

After our lesson on Thursday about creating PowerPoints when we were learning how to change the backgrounds, insert pictures from Google and insert text boxes, Caoimhe and Jasmine have both created their own PowerPoints at home to share with the class!
If any of you want to create your own PowerPoint you can email them to me and I will post them on our blog too.

I am missing all of you Owls!

Hello Owls!

I am missing you all lots, thank you so much for all my wonderful get well soon cards, they really cheered me up :)
Hopefully I will be back in school on Monday (fingers crossed) so I look forward to seeing you and the fantastic learning you have been doing whilst I have been off. I have been hearing from Mrs Peersman, Miss Newton and Mr Wall that you have been really well behaved, trying your best and showing everyone at Dobcroft how resilient you can be with all your different teachers. I am so proud!

Please comment below with the favourite thing you have done or learnt whilst I have been off to keep me updated!

Miss Hughes.

PS – If you would like to try some maths problem solving skills that will really challenge your thinking skills, have a look at this website.


Happy maths!

Our trip to the Museum of Science and Industry

On Tuesday we went on a long coach journey to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.

When we arrived we met Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred, and they told us all about Pender – a steam engine! We learnt about putting coal in the fire box for fuel, boiling the water for steam and how the pistons go forwards and backwards inside the cylinders.


We wrote thank you letters to Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred telling them all about the fun things we learned at the museum.

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came on the trip with us – we really couldn’t have gone without you and you were really helpful!

Miss Hughes.
