Welcome to Emerald Class

Hello, my name is Mrs Fuller and I am the class teacher for Emerald class.

Emerald class is a mixed Year 1/2 class. We work very closely with the other classes in KS1 - Diamond (Y1) and Garnet (Y2).

Mrs Cording and Mrs Munro also work with us in KS1.

Welcome to Emerald class!

Take a look at our classroom environment...

Summer 2022

Summer 2 started with a History topic.

We are learning all about The Tudors!  For our Sparkling Start this half term, we went to Gainsborough Old Hall. Children took part in workshops and even re-enacted a Tudor feast. The following day, we dressed up as Tudors. It was a great way to start our topic and we can't wait to find out more. Take a look at our photos from the two days.

Spring 2022

Let's be chefs!

Emerald class have recently been budding designers once again. We spent a whole day experimenting with different bread types and food toppings as part of our Food Technology topic 'Making healthy pizzas.' The children worked collaboratively to taste and then discuss the suitability of different bread bases. We provided them with a range of pizza toppings and children discussed which ones they wanted to use on their own pizza. In the afternoon, we then designed our own healthy pizza.  The following day, we followed our designs to make our pizzas and evaluate how successful and healthy they were. Take a look at the process below.

Spring 2 started with a History topic.

We are learning all about The Romans!  For our Sparkling Start this half term, we asked the children to dress up as Roman citizens. Everyone, including staff, took part and it was a great way to begin the topic. Take a look at our photos.

Exploring Danum library, museum and art gallery!

Pupils in KS1 went on a visit to the brand new Danum library, museum and art gallery. To accompany our art topic, we took part in a workshop where we used different items from the museum to create portraits. To link with our Geography topic, we also went to the children's library and completed activities to do with the countries and landmarks of the British Isles. To finish the day, we all had time to explore the museum and see the locomotives that are housed in the building. 

Check out the photos from our recent visit.
