Welcome to River Class! 


 Welcome back! 

For our Spring term we are going to be focusing on Explore! We will become geographers and be taking a closer look at countries and capitals of the UK and physical and human features of Europe. 

Our class book this term is Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

Take a look below at this terms topic web!


Here are some highlights from the last two terms;

River class have been finding out all about the Romans and Vikings. When we visited Chelwood the children created some Celtic roundhouses made from natural materials. We had a wonderful time visiting The Newt in Castle Cary to explore the Roman museum and Villa. The children formed their own Roman army, they created their own shields and learnt Latin commands so they could invade the Pig! What a fantastic Autumn term!!!


Please note, PE will be on Wednesday afternoons: please can all pupils come to school in their PE kits on Wednesdays.  

Please have a go a Doodle every day and try to get into the green zone of at least two of your Doodle Apps every week. 

If you have any further questions, please contact us on Class Dojo for general enquiries or via the school enquiries email for enquiries about your child's learning.  Thank you.

Here are some photographs of our learning from the academic year 2022 to 2023







                                                                        We had an incredible afternoon at Chelwood. River class worked as a team to build dens, everyone got stuck in collecting branches to build up the walls. One group even made a roof with leaves. We then enjoyed some smores at the campfire.  
This week we had a fantastic day at the Bristol Museum and gallery. We learnt about the daily lives of Ancient Egyptian through studying artefacts. We also had time to explore the rest of the museum and gallery.  .
In our discover class this week, we have analysed images from Ancient Egypt to discover more about their lives. Inspired by our class book, The girl who rowed the ocean, we had a lesson on rope knots that would be used when at sea. River class learnt how to a tie a figure of eight, reef knot and even attempted the tricky bowline knot.
