Welcome to Diamond Class!

 

Hello my name is Miss Ely-Hiscock and I am the teacher in Diamond Class.

Mrs Cording, Mrs Stewart and Mrs Shaw. 

What we're up to this term...

Autumn 2022

Let's be Smoothie Makers!

In our design and technology lessons, we have been looking at smoothie making. We classified different fruits and vegetables and discussed how we could identify if something was a fruit. Children discussed where fruits and vegetables grow. We tasted a variety of fruits and vegetables to decide which ingredients would taste best in a smoothie. Children picked their favourite out of smoothie 1 (pineapple, mango and carrot) or smoothie 2 (apple, grapes, banana and spinach). They designed a cartoon for their favourite smoothie. We then got to taste both of the smoothies! Have a look at some of our photos...

This half term, we are looking at Spatial Sense in Geography, Colour in Art and The Human Body in Science. For our Sparkling Start this half term, we are asking children to bring in a photo of themselves and label the different parts of the body. See some of our photos below!
