Good morning lovely Donnington children. I hope are well and staying safe. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the sun safely.

I received a letter this week from Harry in my class. It was such a lovely surprise and really made my day. It has been such a long time since I got such a lovely letter. So a very big thank you to you Harry. Harry’s letter gave me the idea – have a go at writing a letter to a friend or family member or even to me! Then take a photo of it and send it to learning books.  

Parents! Look out for an alert on your phone from Learning books. I will be sending a message to your child for him/her to watch. Please reply with a message back (videos will not be accepted) so I know you have seen it. Thank you.

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?

Happy Diwali!

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.
