This is where children join the Woodford Church of England Primary School family. We are lucky enough to have a large amount of classroom space and a wonderful outdoor area. Our indoor area has a range of areas including construction, role play, reading, writing and maths areas. There is a sand pit, water tray and messy area as well as teaching areas. Our outdoor area has a covered area, a writing and role play shed, a stage, a mud kitchen and climbing equipment.
Learning in Donaldson class is practical, explorative and fun……and sometimes messy! We come together as a class on the carpet, we have time to talk, discuss, sing and we work in our books. All our practical learning is recorded through observations, that are sent home using Tapestry for everyone at home to see. There are regular share sessions where family can come and be part of the fun.
Reception children have PE on a Wednesday afternoon so will need to come to school in their PE kits, with any earrings or jewellery removed. Currently, we enjoy a whole class snack time each morning where the children sit together and share some time while they have a small snack such as yoghurts, breadsticks, malt loaf etc. To enable us to continue doing this, we ask Reception parents for a donation of £1 a week. This can either be paid weekly or termly.
