Welcome to Diamond Class!

Mr M Blackburn

Class Teacher

Mrs J Gibson

Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Diamond Class.


A big warm welcome to Diamond Class. Mr Blackburn is our class teacher and Mrs Gibson is our teaching assistant. Mrs Gibson shall also be teaching on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons when Mr Blackburn is out of class completing other responsibilities.


Homework shall be themed each half term and will link to a topic that we are learning about in class. Homework needs to be handed in every Monday and placed in the Homework tray. There are a range of tasks on each grid that cover different aspects of the curriculum in order to try and provide some tasks that will appeal to all. Mr Blackburn will make a note of completed homework’s each week – you should have six by the end of each half term! You can find a copy of each of our Homework grids in both your child’s Homework book and on the Homework Page. If there is any uncertainty over a homework task, then please speak to Mr Blackburn about it at the end of the school day.


Each week we will hand out a list of spellings to learn for a test the following Monday, our spelling tests will be each Monday morning. Learning spellings each week are not only important for spelling tests but will also help your child improve the quality of their written work.


Children must come to school each day ready for their learning, this includes having the correct equipment. The children need a book bag (that will fit into their tray), in their book bags must be their reading book, their reading record and their spelling record. Full equipment also includes a full PE kit; school has kindly provided a coloured PE top that matches the child’s team colour and all children must have black or blue shorts and pumps.


Our PE sessions are will take place on Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon.


Please remember all PE kits and school uniforms need to be clearly labelled with the children’s name.
