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.


Autumn Term 1



Class River's Blog

Dean Forest Railway!

Class River had a super time riding on the Dean Forest Steam Railway.

We saw the steam engine being filled up with water and being changed, we looked around the museum and we even had a go at changing the signals in the signal box! Luckily we didn’t confuse any trains!

Well done Class River for another excellent trip and for representing our school so well.

Anglo Saxon Day!

Class River had a great time experiencing life as Anglo Saxons. We tried Anglo Saxon food, which had mixed reviews! We also created Anglo Saxon shields and villages. We even had a fearsome Anglo Saxon battle!

We the Curious

We had a great time at We the Curious science museum! We watched the amazing Light Fantastic show where we saw many different light experiments. Eddie the scientist made different coloured flames, a lightsaber out of electricity and some strip lighting and turned some glass tubes invisible! We had loads of fun looking around the museum and trying out all the different activities!

Visit to Weston’s Farm

We had a great time at Weston’s Farm with Class River.

First saw where they turn the apples into cider. The vats were huge!

This is Reg the shire horse. He liked eating carrots!

We enjoyed the bumpy tractor ride up to the farm to see the animals.



At the farm we saw Ronaldo the bull who is the mascot for Hereford United football club. In the barn we saw cows and calves, we even saw a calf that had only been born a few minutes before and couldn’t yet stand up! It was really exciting!


Finally we saw the sheep and lambs – one ewe had three lambs!

Bristol Aquarium

On Monday 25th June, River class went on a trip to Bristol Aquarium. We had a great time even though it was very hot. We learnt lots of interesting facts about the fish. We were able to feed the sharks and fish.

Resilience Day!

We have enjoyed a really fun and challenging day today – learning all about resilience and pushing ourselves to overcome tricky situations. We have worked as teams to complete challenges and solved the mystery of the naughty teacher! We were visited by the Puzzle Company who brought some games to challenge us and we even… Continue Reading

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… Continue Reading
