Welcome to Donaldson Class!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in September. Here are some photographs of our lovely learning environment so you can have a little explore before you come in this week.


Welcome back to school after the summer holidays! We hope you are all feeling rested and refreshed, ready to begin your school journey with us at Oaklands.


This half term we will be focusing on settling in, learning daily routines, exploring the learning environment and getting to know one another.  


Our initial theme will be 'All About Me'. We will be thinking about our homes, families, pets and interests. 


As the weather changes, we will move on to learn about Autumn (if you find any Autumn objects e.g. conkers/leaves/pine cones, please feel free to bring them in to share with us).





Our P.E. days are Tuesday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor). On these days we ask for children to come in to school wearing their P.E. kits including appropriate footwear. Long hair should be tied up and jewellery removed or covered.


We aim to start P.E.lessons in the week beginning 20th September. We will let you know if this changes.
