Julia Donaldson Class

Welcome to

Julia Donaldson Class

Our teachers are

Ms Ashcroft

Mrs Lockhart on a Wednesday

and

Our TAs are

Mrs Bennetts, Mrs Vickers and Mrs Pankhurst

Seesaw - This is also a great way to communicate with the teacher.

 

Star of the Week - All children will at some point receive the title 'Star of the Week' this celebrates something unique about each child. They will get a certificate and their picture goes up on the wall in the classroom. Star of the Week is usually appointed on a Friday.

 

House Teams - Every child has a house team. This is a whole school system for promoting good behaviour as children can receive house points from any adult in school and add it to their class tally. Tallies are collected each week and added to a running total until at the end of a term a winner is announced! Children can also wear their house colours for Sports Day, when they sit in their house teams.

 

Friday Explorers - Friday Explorers is an opportunity to explore our local environment.
