Amazon Spring 2017

The Amazon River is also home to the piranha, a meat eating type of fish. Although they have a reputation of being very aggressive, they are very sociable fish living in schools in the wild. Adult red-bellied piranhas tend to feed on worms, insects and other fish mostly at night and dawn.

This week you can hear Amazon (year 3) singing The Beatles at their assembly and giving tips on speaking in public. Find out what the children do during playtimes. And finally, they talk openly about autism and Lyndhurst’s Short Story Contest.

Rio Grande Spring 2016

Along the banks of the Rio Grande wildflower bloom each spring. The river has, since 1845, marked the boundary between Mexico and the United States from the twin cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, to the Gulf of Mexico. As such, it was across this river that Texan slaves fled when seeking their freedom, aided by Mexico's liberal colonization policies and abolitionist stance.

In this week’s broadcast Rio Grande talk about Autism Awareness Week, what it is and what children can do to help autistic children at school. The children also tell us some interesting facts about Ancient Egypt that they’ve been learning about and finally we celebrate St Patrick’s Day with limmericks and poems (you can read them here).

Last but not least, listen to the end to find out Miss Savvides song choice if she was stuck on a desert island.
