Riverside Class - Year 5/6

Riverside is a Year 5 / Year 6 class and the teacher is Miss Pritchard.

Welcome to Riverside Class

23.11.23 Science Experiment

Today, the children investigated how the size of an object affects how it falls. They used different sized pieces of paper to see how the surface area affects how slowly an object falls. We learnt that the smaller the surface area, the less air resistance so the object falls quicker.

25.10.23 Cooking Lesson

WOW! What an exciting end to our first half term. We made our own mushroom and cheese pizzas, focusing on cutting, measuring and heating. The finished products looked so tasty and the children really enjoyed making them.

Riverside Cooking Autumn 1

We have had a wonderful first week getting started with our learning. We have enjoyed our Zumba lessons in indoor PE and have been working on our team work skills in our outdoor PE. We have enjoyed learning about and celebrating Roald Dahl Day by rewriting our own version of Matilda. To improve our speed on our times tables, we have been busy practicing Rolling Numbers in our Maths lessons. 

First week in Riverside Class

This week, we have enjoyed starting our Zumba topic in indoor PE. We have also practiced our Rolling Numbers to learn our times tables. We have worked on our teamwork and communication skills in our Outdoor PE lessons and enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl Day with writing our own versions of Matilda.


We have had an amazing first week getting to know each other and start our learning. We have started our topic of Stone Age to Iron Age in our history lessons and we are so excited to continue our learning. In our Writing lessons, we are enjoying experiencing what it would be like to enter Jurassic World for the first time - I can't wait to see the writing that we can produce. 

Hello Riverside Class! 

I am very excited to be your teacher next year. I am looking forward to getting to know lots about you all and having lots of fun. We have a very busy year coming up with lots of hard work and exciting things waiting for us. I hope you all have an amazing summer and have a good rest! I will see you all in September.
