Dorchester St Birinus Primary School

Dorchester St Birinus Church of England School


As we near the end of the school year, I am pleased to tell you that our children are still working really hard.

Hedgehog class are creating their own beaches at the moment. There are some beautiful seagulls flying through their classroom too.

Squirrel Class are learning about map reading and how to use an atlas. They’ve also been enjoying the story of the Night Pirates.

Fox Class have been developing their pointillism paintings and are investigating tessellating shapes.

Owl Class returned from Woodlands having experienced caving, climbing, canoeing, hill walking, camp fires, orienteering, serving food, making new friends and developing determination and resilience.

Year 4 and 5 children enjoyed a music workshop this week from Henge 22. We are very excited about being part of the procession in September.

We are also very proud that the brilliant infographic created by Owl Class, to show the pollution levels outside our school, has been chosen to be part of a display at the Royal Society of Chemistry who have funded the project. The display will be showcasing what the Royal Society of Chemistry is doing to support sustainability. The showcase will be on display to anyone who attends any events or meetings at their London office in July. The board was previously on display to the public in Abingdon.
