Our First Weeks Back Together September 2021
In Donaldson, we have been looking at our local environment and how we can take care of it. We went on a walk around the school and discovered that although Mr Mason works really hard to keep it clean, people are still littering. We used our litter-picker and collected nearly a whole bin bag full of rubbish before writing about how we can help our local environment.
Key Stage 2 Sports Day 2021
Year 5 Cricket June 2021
Year 5 and 6 Time Capsule March 2021
Year five and six created and buried a time capsule to commemorate the return of pupils to school after the most recent lockdown.
The children were delighted to return to normal school life after months of online learning and wanted to create something special for people in the future to remember the unprecedented times.
In the time capsule, the children wrote letters to the future explaining what Covid-19 is, how it has affected their lives over the past year and thanking the NHS for their heroic efforts. They also generously donated items that relate to the pandemic including face masks, hand sanitiser, newspaper articles, photos and drawings.
