Happy Thursday, Poplar Class. Our class email is poplarclass@riversideprimaryschool.org.uk - you can send in examples of the lovely work you've been doing and anything else you want to send. Then we'll save them up until Fridays and post them once a week. 

 

 

Could I please ask you to carry on collecting a few items for this week:

  • an empty drinks carton (l litre or bigger)  
  • an empty plastic milk bottle with the lid (2 pints or bigger)
  • empty cereal boxes (any size)
  • kitchen roll tubes

and if you have anything delivered that comes in tissue paper or some useful packaging, save that too!
