river

Welcome to Class River! We are a hardworking mix of Year 2 and 3 children and we love a challenge!

In the mornings we have English and Maths lessons where we enjoy using lots of different apparatus and techniques to improve our understanding and explore our topics. We also look forward to our Guided Reading lessons where we share different types of interesting books with our friends and teachers – aiming to meet our targets.

In the afternoons we enjoy a huge variety of learning opportunities. We are very sporty and like to keep fit and healthy, we also enjoy Art and DT projects where we plan and make our designs – not forgetting to evaluate them to help us next time! We are very eager to learn about the world around us and our RE lessons plus SMSC time help us to look at others and think about ourselves.

We go on interesting trips and invite visitors into class to help us experience our learning in a different way. When we have whole school theme days we enjoy doing big creative projects – especially when we are in our house groups!

In Class River we are great listeners and enjoy learning very much. As a class we are motivated to do our very best and create lots of great memories of school and learning with our friends.

Swimming Lessons

We have really enjoyed our swimming lessons this term. We have grown in confidence and have learnt so many new skills.

A big thank you to all of our volunteer coaches and helpers.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Park

We really enjoyed our trip to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. We saw so many different animals and got very close to some of them! We learnt about habitats and adaptation in our class workshop and some of us were even brave enough to touch a snake and a cockroach!

Mrs Hulse and Mrs Harvey were very proud of us because we were very sensible and respectful to the animals.

 

 

Spanish Cooking!

We have been practising our cooking skills making Spanish Tapas and Paella this week. We prepared, cooked, and tasted some traditional dishes and had great fun.

Experience Church

We had a fantastic morning exploring our Church through different activities. We learnt about; welcoming new people to the church through baptism, saying prayers for ourselves and others, taking communion to celebrate and remember, sharing our worries & teaching others and communicating with our village with the bells.

We even got to ring the bells and we made a new altar cloth for our church!

We would like to say a huge thank you to the members of our church family that organised such a great learning experience for us and made it such fun.
