Year 5 & 6 - Diamond
Welcome to Diamond Class!
There are 22 of us in Diamond Class with Mrs Bowey and Mrs Tilley as our class teachers . We have Maths and English along with PSHE, French in the mornings with Mrs Bowey and Science on a Monday afternoon. In the afternoons we are with Mrs Tilley doing our History, Geography, Art, DT, Computing and RE work. We also have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument this year taught by Red Admiral. This year we are learning a variety of brass instruments. Take a look below at our yearly curriculum overview for further information on the topics being covered. This term we are learning all about the rainforest and we are thoroughly enjoying our exciting class novel 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell; much of our writing in English is based upon our reading. We love collecting knowledge and new vocabulary. Our knowledge Journals are a great way to record our learning and we love our end of term quizzes to see how much we have remembered.
We work very hard in Diamond class to ensure each child reaches their potential across all areas of the curriculum. We have a happy, calm, hard-working learning environment, where every child feels valued and secured. We all know what we need to do to make progress and to do our very best. We encourage resilience, perseverance and an 'I can' attitude! Our teachers encourage us to achieve our targets and to be proud of the wonderful work that we do. Have a look around our classroom and in the corridor to see some of our fantastic work. We are always very excited to find out who is 'star of the week' and Dojo Champ of the Day. The Dojos are collected at the end of the week and added to our team points. We are excited to see which team is in the lead!
We really look forward to our learning outside. We have a wonderful field with a Willow Classroom and a tunnel and tyres to play on. Also, each year we go to Tower Wood as part of our outdoor learning curriculum. Whilst there we enjoy open canoeing, climbing, balance beam amongst many other activities. It's a great time to learn team building skills and build our resilience and confidence.
We have a School Council and a Sports Council where we have a representative from both year groups. Year 6 pupils also take on the responsibility of Team Captains, Playground Leaders and some of our children have been trained as referees for football games. All children have the opportunity to apply for jobs within school and many of Diamond class take pride in their roles. We have a range of extra curricular activities on offer that Diamond class have the opportunity to participate in. This year the clubs that are available are: singing, eco, mad science, tag rugby, cross country, girls football, netball, football and athletics.
