Friday evening update from Grenville House

Back from our first activity and already we have some very tired children. We’ve had a great time. Mrs Carpenter’s group won the orienteering challenge – obviously!! The children did a great job of challenging themselves on the high ropes and taking the Leap of Faith. Mrs Ansell’s group even had a seal swimming alongside their kayaks.

More photos have been uploaded, more to follow all evening – take a look…


We had a lovely walk around Plymouth Hoe this morning and now we’re here! Jjust settling into our dorms before getting our instructions for our first activity. More photos to follow later…

Brickfields 2015

front page

On 17th June, 20 children from years 3,4,5 and 6 took part in an athletics festival at Brickfields Athletics Club. The children competed against 46 other primary schools from across the city in events including, long jump, distance throw, high jump, sprints and relays.

Two Riverside children, in particular, performed exceptionally well. After finishing first in their individual sprint heats, Dylan Harbour of year 6 and Seana Hurrell of year 5, went on to compete in the final of their respective year group race. The standard of the athletes in the finals were incredible high but both Dylan and Seana raced very well and finished second in very close races.

Congratulations to all children who took part! Click to see more images of the event.
