Happy Easter From River Class!

What a lot of hard work River Class have been doing this Spring term! We have been busy learning about plants in Science and discovering what plants need to survive with lots of hands-on gardening experience! We have learnt lots about the different countries of Europe and have sampled food from each and every country that we have explored. We have worked super hard on our times-tables in maths and have fallen in love with the Tin Forest in English. River Class really have been working so hard despite several bouts of Covid afflicting us! 

After Easter, we will be focusing on our Create project which for the summer term will be 'African Art'. Take a look at the topic web below to find out more about what we will be up to! Have a lovely Easter River Class and I can't wait to embark upon our summer term adventures...




Here are some photos of what we have been up to recently...

Having a wonderful time at Chelwood! How lucky we are to have such a beautiful forest school to visit!

A great first week back to school for River Class! We've been super busy building Celtic Roundhouses, creating our own Celtic Village - each of us with a different job/role to play- and ending the week getting messy in Science. We were investigating the difference between solids, liquids and gases and trying to decide which state shaving foam, cornflour and jelly would fall into! 



Take a look at the fabulous time we had invading The Pig! We have worked so hard learning all about the Celts and the Romans. We had a fantastic time dressing up as Romans, donning the armour that we had made and marching in formation. The Pig rewarded our efforts with a drink and a snack at their huge banquet table. The choice we gave our enemies was : Join us or fight! 











Here we are continuing with our Discover re-enactments. We are reliving the roles of the Celts and the Romans. We also had a go at planning and executing an invasion on opposing tribes. The children had some great ideas about how to attack undetected and thought really hard about how to trick opposing hill forts.






We had a fabulous day recreating our Celtic village for our parents on museum day. We gained a real in-depth knowledge of what exactly the Celts did and how they lived their lives. We loved marching in formation once again, as Romans and created an excellent 'live museum!'
