Donnington Graduation!

We Graduated with a First Class Hons in Travelling!

For the University of Redlands degree Donnington Class and Nursery Class travelled around the world to explore the different countries. We explored Spain, Barbados, Pakistan, Greece, Bangladesh and The Netherlands! We learnt how to say hello in the different languages, sang songs, danced, tasted traditional food, tried on traditional clothes and recognised the different famous buildings of each country. We can now also recognise the different flags of each country we visited.

We had an amazing time travelling around the world. Where shall we go next?

Our Class Trip to Four Kingdoms

We had an amazing time at Four Kingdoms. There was so much to do and explore! The gigantic climbing equipment was really exciting and we enjoyed sliding down the twirly, whirly slide! We also had a ride on a small train and big train that took us around the park.

It was an amazing experience to sit on the tractor and see all the lovely animals, the pigs, horses, donkeys, sheep and Alpacas!

Before  lunch we visited the farm and had the opportunity to hold and stroke the hen, tortoise and cute little bunny!

Sports Day!

We had an amazing time on Sports Day. We had to go to the University playing fields where the Year Six children set up all the activities for us. We took part in four races that we chose. We did the running race, egg and spoon race, quoit race, dressing up race, hurdles race, hoop race and the sack race. We had an amazing time!


Happy Mother's Day

We hope you have a wonderful day on Sunday and enjoy the lovely song and presents your child has spent time making.

Make sure you come and see the amazing paintings of mums on display.

World Book Day

The children  in Donnington Class dressed up as their favourite characters and brought in their favourite books to share with the rest of the class.

What's your favourite story?

 Parents were invited in to read favourite stories with their children. We had an amazing time!


Outdoor learning!

On Wednesday afternoons Donnington Class go to the university to enjoy and explore the outside classroom. Please make sure your child is dressed in warm appropriate clothes as the weather is quite cold. 

Donnnington and Nursery Performance - The Wriggly Nativity!

What an amazing performance by all the children! They were superstars!

We hope you were proud of us all and enjoyed the performance as much as we did!




We have been learning about fireworks! We pretended to be fireworks during our PE session and used our bodies to 'whizz', 'zoom', 'bang', 'fizz' and 'explode!' in the hall. We painted and drew amazing, colourful fireworks and made firework rockets using 3D shapes. Come and have a look at our amazing firework display in our classroom.


Harvest festival celebrations!

We celebrated Harvest and made fruit salad from the left over fruit. We used apples, pears, oranges, raspberries and strawberries! We cut up all the fruit and mixed it in a bowl and then added orange and mango juice. It was delicious and very healthy! 

Our first week in Donnington Class

We have had an amazing first week! We have been making friends and learning new names! We are also becoming familiar with our new classroom and routines of the day.

At snack time we brought in our own fruit and vegetables and sat with our friends to enjoy them. We also had our first school meal and it was so much fun taking our trays and choosing our meal! We are becoming so independent!

Playtimes and lunch times are spent in the big playground with the other children. We are making lots more friends and learning the names of all the other adults.
