Welcome to Diamonds!
Our children have the opportunity to explore and have 'hands on' experiences daily. The children share their interests which we then incorporate in to their learning. Our Year 1 children learn through activities such as role play and Hot Seating during English and investigating Mathematical concepts through a wide range of practical activities. All children have access to a wide range of art materials and love being creative! Currently, I feel we have a class of engineers as our Construction Area is full of towers, cars and hairdryers!
Diamonds have had a very exciting start to the Summer term. We have diving deep into the ocean in our topic, 'Under The Sea.' Everyone has enjoyed learning about lots of different sea creatures including sharks, jellyfish and sea turtles. The children have learnt lots of interesting facts about the sea creatures and have even made their very own jellyfish! We have been doing lots of amazing writing and have created sea wands and beware signs (for all of the dangerous animals!). Diamonds have made and tested boats to see which materials would be the best out on the open water. In Maths, the children have been exploring patterns, numbers and some tricky sums!
It has been a super term!
