Always Learning and Achieving Together

Donaldson

Welcome to Donaldson Class

 

Hello everyone and welcome to our class. We are the Reception (EYFS) class at Frogwell School.

The EYFS team is made up of:

  • Mrs Jenkins (class teacher)
  • Mrs Webb (TA - full time)
  • Miss Simmens (TA - full time)

 

Our class is named after the author Julia Donaldson, who wrote stories such as The Gruffalo, Stick Man, A Squash and a Squeeze and many, many more! Have you read any Julia Donaldson books?

Please come and speak to any member of the EYFS team if you have any questions or queries, we are always happy to help.

Term 4

This term we will be looking at the past and present, with a focus on old and new transport. We will have an introduction to a significant figure from the past - Brunel and learning about the things he designed that helped us. We will look at people who help us now, too (the emergency services). In maths our number focus is 10 - we will explore composition of 10, ordering numbers and number bonds of 10 (pairs of numbers that make 10).

For more information, please have a look at the curriculum information below.

This term we will start with a mini topic learning about winter. Our main topic in Term 3 will be 'Where in the World?', which will focus on finding out about different environments across the world in which real bears live.
