The Julia Donaldsons (Reception)
Welcome to Reception Class
Why are we The Julia Donaldsons?
From a tiny seed, Julia Donaldson originally wrote songs for children’s television but has concentrated on books since the words of one of her songs, ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’, were made into a children’s book in 1993. She was the 2011-2013 Children’s Laureate. She has written many rhyming stories for children such as Stick Man, The Snail and the Whale and The Gruffalo, fueling children’s imaginations the world over.
What charity are we going to support?
This year we have chosen to support two charities, ‘Book Aid International’ and ‘childrensbookproject.co.uk’. Book Aid International gives millions of children the opportunity to read by providing books to libraries, schools, universities, refugee camps and hospitals worldwide. The Children’s Book project seeks to tackle book poverty in the UK and to give every child the opportunity to own their own book. Over the next year we will be planning and holding fundraising events to raise money for these charities.
Our PE day is: Tuesday
On our class PE day, please can your child come into school in their PE kit. Please ensure they still have a jumper/hoodie/sweatshirt as we still have to ventilate the classrooms due to Covid.
