Houses of Parliament and London Eye Year 6 trip
On Wednesday 21st February the Year 6 children from Donington and St Gilbert's travelled to the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. The children were a credit to the school and were fantastic all day. We went on the London Eye and managed to spot some the landmarks sights in London such as St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. We then walked across Westminster Bridge to the Houses of Parliament. We were given a tour of the House of Parliament and even went into the viewing gallery and watched part of a debate taking place in the Houses of Commons! 
Young Voices 
On Monday 19th February our Key Stage 2 choir travelled to Sheffield Utilita Arena to take part in Young Voices, the biggest children's choir concerts in the world.
The children were a credit to the school and were fantastic all day. We joined in with performances from 13 year old drummer Nandi Bushell, singer Natalie Williams and YouTube star MC Grammar. We even got to see dance act, Urban Strides. This was an amazing day and a fantastic opportunity for the children involved. 
We cannot wait for next year!
A visit from St Gilberts School

It was lovely to welcome our friends from St Gilbert’s in Year 3/4 and in Reception and Nursery on Monday 29th January. Linking with their topics this term they engaged in varied activities including visits to the immersive suite, practical learning and team building. It was lovely to see the children interact so brilliantly. We hope to build in more opportunities for collaboration between children as the term progresses including the Y6 visit to the Houses of Parliament and sporting events.

School Art Exhibition
On Friday 24th February the whole school came together as we opened an art gallery in our hall. The children from EYFS all the way up to year 6 all had a piece of artwork which they had to show and present. The whole school have been working on the topic ‘Reflections’ so it was interesting to see all of the different adaptations and interpretations the classes had been working on. Throughout the afternoon the children all had a chance to come and look around the whole school art gallery which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Once school had finished, children were able to come in with their parents to proudly show their artwork to them.
