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.

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 had a climbing wall in the playground!

We have had a fantastic day and learnt a lot about being resilient and overcoming tricky situations.

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.
