Riverside pupils have been rolling out their end of year Christmas celebrations by creating their own 'class bubble' videos. We thought we would share J1s with you. Enjoy!

Riverside Celebrated Pancake Tuesday
We had a pancake competition which was a great activity to support our Functional Maths skills on measurement.
Each class was asked to make their best pancakes and send them up to the office to be judged. The class or pupil who made the best pancake and biggest pancake got prizes.
J5 made the biggest pancake and S3 made the tastiest. Winners were announced at our celebration assembly. We had great fun making pancakes and tasting them! Well done everyone.

Happy Halloween from Riverside School
A big congratulations to Jack, Charlie and Matthew for taking part in the Special Schools' Dexter Young Handler Class at Balmoral show. They all did brilliantly in the ring. Jack represented Riverside in the Grand Parade at the end of the show. Congratulations to Kyle, Jamie and Grace and all the other teams who took part. Riverside made a tremendous effort but in the end, Roddensvale School won the rosette.
Riverside Post 16 Pathways Class
Pathways have been very busy this year as they prepare themselves for life after school. The pupils in Pathways are given many opportunities and life experiences to develop their life skills.
Every Wednesday, they attend either the Bridge or the Gym. At the Bridge in Antrim the pupils learn cookery, woodwork and ICT skills. Once a week they attend the MET College in Belfast where they develop their ICT skills on Ipads and enjoy classes to prepare themselves for transitioning once they reach the age of 19.
They practice cooking dinner each week, go shopping to get the ingredients and further get to practice these skills in a school based café.
They have their own Young Enterprise business know as PUP (Pathways Unique Products.) This year they won two awards for their efforts including Best overall team and Team programme for outstanding teamwork.
Well done Pathways. Keep up the Great work!
