Year 2 - Donaldson Class

Welcome to the Donaldson Class Page.


Our Class Teacher is Mrs. Collins.

Did you know we are called Donaldson class after the author Julia Donaldson?

Creative Fortnight


Our topic for Creative Fortnight this year is 'Up, Up, Above!' We have been so busy being creative! So far, we have made clay rainforest tiles with an artist, tie-dyed butterflies for our canopy, woven flowers, and wind-up rainforest shadow boxes. We have also been into the visiting planetarium to see 'up, up, and way above' into the solar system. The children have shown real resilience and cooperation through these activities, and we are very proud of them. Have a look at our creativity! 

Some amazing claywork

History off the Page - Fire of London


As part of our topic about London we travelled back to 1666.  We had a day in school where we dressed on in period costume and did lots of activites to help us learn about the Fire of London, what is was like and what happened.  Here are some photographs. 



Harvest Festival


To celebrate harvest we made up food boxes to give to people in the communtiy.  We also had an activies afternoon when our parents/grown ups came in to school to do harvest activites.  For one of our activities we made a picture of a corn on the cob.

Story Writing


We have been learning about journey stories one of these is Little Charlie.  We went on a journey walk around Letchworth, look what we found.  We have used these ideas to make up our own stories.

Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.

"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
