Kew Riverside Primary School

Children at the heart of everything we do

Elephant Class

 Welcome to Elephants Class where Sarah is the class teacher and is the TA is Kamila.

In Elephants the children are encouraged to learn in a creative, fun and energetic way. Our learning takes place through experiencing and living the things we are learning about. Whether that includes going on a shape hunt around the school, finding which lights will make Twinkle the brightest star in the sky or meeting the real Florence Nightingale. This really brings learning alive for the children and makes school a great experience to have and share.
