It’s a strange old world…especially at Riverbank! I’m invited down to classes when there are tricky jobs to do. When Mrs Ullah invited me to her class, recently, it was to view an exhibition of work the class had carried out on Paris.
The children had been given a topic to research and produce some interesting exhibits for the visitors to see. Miss Hampton and I were stunned when we walked into the class and saw the fantastic….or should that be fantastique, work which the pupils produced.
There were some amazing fact files, stunning models and even some lovely baking. There were also a few prize categories and Miss Hampton and I found it extremely difficult to come to decisions as to who the winners should be as all of the pupils had put a lot of work into creating their exhibits.
I have created a slideshow of what I saw and the winners of certain categories were presented with a small gift. Mr Doyle, who did a student placement at Riverbank, was still with us at the time and supported Mrs Ullah and the class so well with this activity.
