Years 5 and 6
Welcome to our Year 5 & 6 webpage. My name is Mrs Pessoa and I am the Class Teacher. I have taught at The River School for 10 years.
The learning environment in Years 5 & 6 is an exciting mixture of individual, pair and whole class work. Pupils have opportunities to develop their abilities and work on improving their weaknesses both academically, and in terms of character and spiritual development. To help prepare pupils for their future lives they are encouraged to grow in wisdom and discernment as they apply Biblical truth and develop critical thinking.
Coppicing Hazel with the Duckworth Trust
We have another Forest School site that we would like to develop at school. We will be building a shelter out of Hazel branches which are coppiced by the Duckworth Trust at a local woodland site. They very kindly gave us the Hazel that we collected one afternoon. We are looking forward to being part of the team who will build the permanent shelter in our Forest School area.
