Donnington Class meets Pudsey Bear!
We celebrated 'Children in Need' by being 'Spectacular' and dressing up in SPOTS!
We brought in coins and then placed them on a huge Pudsey Bear and we managed to get it all covered up with the coins. The money will be counted up by the Year 6 children and we will find out next week how much we raised for 'Children in Need'
What did you do to raise money for Children in Need?
Autumn Walk at the university!
We went on our Autumn walk to look for the signs of Autumn.
We saw lots of leaves that had changed colour to red, yellow, orange and brown. We even saw leaves falling off the trees above our heads!
Squirrels were also spotted and we had to be very quiet in case we scared them.
We collected hundreds of leaves and made a huge pile which we then jumped into. We also threw the leaves into the air and watched them fall on our heads!
Running around in the open space felt amazing!
What signs of Autumn have you observed?
Author/illustrator visit - Simon Murray
The author and illustrator Simon Murray visited our school. He writes and illustrates the Ickey Doo Dah books. Simon told us how he came about the idea for his character and then showed us step by step how to draw him.
In our class we followed his instructions and drew our very own Ickey Doo Dah! It was so much fun!
We have been thinking about Diwali and what happens during this celebration. It is celebrated by the Hindus and Sikhs and it celebrates the triumph of good over evel, light over darkness.
In class we made clay divas and then decorated them with bright coloured paint and shiny glitter. They look amazing!
We also did some bangra dancing and listened to Indian music. We also made Rangoli patterns.
A Very Warm Welcome to our new Donnington Children and Parents!
Our first week in Donnington Class
We have had an amazing first week! We have been getting used to the class rules and routines, making friends and learning new names!
We have snack time in the morning where we bring in our own fruit and vegetables and sit with our friends to eat them.
We also had our first hot school meals and it was so much fun taking our trays and choosing our meal! We are becoming so independent! Some of us brought in our own packed lunches which we ate in the canteen with the other children,
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 too.
We have been so busy each day, exploring the different areas in our classroom and trying out the different activities that are available there. We know that this time is extremely valuable as we learn through play! Have a look at some of the exploring and learning we have been doing.
