Welcome to Donnington Class!
We would like to welcome you to our Donnington Class web page. We hope you enjoy learning all about our brilliant class and find out about what we are doing at school this term!
We are a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class and our class teachers are Mr Waller and Mrs Phillpot. Throughout the week, we are assisted in class by Mrs Kennedy and Ms Chamberlain who help support us as we learn across the curriculum. We also have the opportunity to learn from Mrs Valentine, Mrs Kilding and Mrs Myers who will be teaching us Music, Science and French as specialist teachers across the term. We take pride in our classroom jobs, taking care and looking after our classroom, and make it our own special habitat for learning.
This term, the curriculum offer is 'Explorers and Invaders' and we are really excited to be learning all about the Romans and their occupation of Britain. We are looking forward to finding out about what British people have learnt from the Romans, and what 'footprints' they have left behind that we can still see today. Alongside this, we will deepen our knowledge of Roman culture and its empire through the source texts, 'The Romans: Gods, Emperors...and Dormice' by Marcia Williams, and the wonderful 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit. Throughout the term, we will jump aboard our own unique, imaginary transport and travel the world, exploring the continents, oceans, countries and seas that form our amazing planet; we will learn about Judaism and the special commitments made by Jews to their faith and to God; and we will understand how reflections and shadows are formed as we explore the topic of 'Light' in Science. In addition, we are so excited to perform our annual Mummers' play this year where we get to recite lines of poetry dressed as St George, a Turkish knight, a galloping doctor, and even Father Christmas! We can't wait!
