The theme of the afternoon was being environmentally responsible and the house captains planned the activities, created the PowerPoint quizzes and supported the teachers to deliver the sessions. In years 1 to 6, the pupils learned more about recycling, took part in a book swap and created hats and leaves from recycled materials. In Nursery and Reception, children planted seeds which they will now be helping to grow. 

Reception Autumn Walk 2023

The children of reception were joined by their grandparents and parents for an autumnal walk in the local area. They made a journey stick using a stick and the fallen leaves, there were so many colours, shapes and sizes! They reflected on their learning from lessons such as why the autumn leaves had fallen down and why the weather was changing. This was also an opportunity for the adult's in the children's lives to experience some of their learning alongside them and make memories.

Sports Crew Training 

The sports crew have been busy learning about what makes a good leader, learning new games and learning what makes a good leader. 


Cross Curricular Days - Circus


The Circus was in town on Thursday 28th of September. This started off our cross curricular days with a bang and the excitement and buzz that came from the Big Top was fantastic! The children were in awe at the performance and got to have a go at developing new skills such as juggling and plate spinning. This experience may have been something new for many of our children who mentioned 'I loved it, it was so funny' and 'I have no idea how he could do that trick, it was amazing!' This showstopping day fed into the learning on Friday which was linked to this experience. 

Morning Activities to get the children moving in the morning!

Year 6 PGL - September 2023

Our 6 children spent the week at PGL in Caythorpe Court. Activities included raft building, archery, abseiling, bushcraft and lasertag and all were designed to help the children discover new strengths and skills and develop trust and confidence in themselves and as a group. By stepping outside their comfort zone, under the watchful eyes of trained instructors, our Year 6 students discovered ways to manage new situations and enjoyed working as a team.

'Through live performance, open discussion and pupil participation, Retune’s wellbeing workshops demonstrate the importance of using creative outlets such as music, art, drama, dance and writing to maintain wellbeing and build emotional resilience. Retune teaches young people how to unlock their imaginations, inspiring them to pursue their passions and achieve mental harmony in the process. Sometimes we all feel out of tune, and small adjustments can take us back to where we need to be.'

The children explored:

NSPCC Children’s Day 2022 


Year 6 hosted a fantastic afternoon of fun and games for the rest of the school as a way of raising money for the NSPCC. The year sixes spent the morning using their team work and enterprise skills to plan and resource different games and activities. In the afternoon each class visited the year 6 playground and used their donation money to have a go on a range of different games; from pin the nose on the teacher to penalty shoot out! 

Geography Fieldwork 


As part of our geography learning we have been learning more about our local area from exploring our school through photos in nursery to creating our own maps and analysing house prices in year 6. We believe that fieldwork is fundamental in ensuring children learn what it means to be a geographer.

Year 6 experienced a Viking Warrior workshop run by St Albans Cathedral. They got to experience an educational talk which featured a Viking Warrior. The Viking Warrior talked to the children about what life would have been like during the Viking period, such as the daily life, battles, and key objects.  The children were able to ask questions and even asked a question to extend on their learning from the previous week on the invasion of Lindisfarne. They asked about the supplies they would have needed to take, and were told they would have taken food on their longships such as hard bread and salted meat. It was a great experience which helped the children to consolidate and extend their history knowledge and vocabulary.

Their shield is made from wood and leather - Amreen

To get water, they collected it from the sea or rainwater - Isla

Facebook Reading Lives 



At Round Diamond we value parental engagement and are eager for parents to experience a moment in the classroom. This term we focused on reading and every year in the school welcomed the parents into their classrooms via Facebook live. 
The parents were able to see a reading lesson taught by their child’s class teacher and follow along with the skills and knowledge covered in the session. 

Parental feedback included 

‘These were a really good way of enabling parents to still experience the classroom session which we would normally have done in person (when we used to be able to come into class for a short period). It was nice to still be able to see the children interacting in their lesson.’

Butterflies of Mindfulness 

The children took part in some collaborative learning across the school as a way of being mindful. Each class were assigned a buddy class and swapped half of the children with their buddy class.
They discussed the activities they do when feeling anxious or worried and then drew them on one half of their butterfly. Their buddy class friend drew on the other side to make a complete butterfly. They will be displayed in the school for all to see! The children demonstrated friendly behaviour to their buddy class and their collaborative learning was outstanding.

They explored the various roles that make a theatre show successful such as production of tickets, costume and set design, script writing, acting, performing to other classes and even writing reviews on performances.
The children also enjoyed a virtual performance of The Wizard of Oz on Wednesday which they thoroughly enjoyed.
