Our Healthy Eating School Trips

This week the Diamonds visited two restaurants.  The first restaurant we visited was Wagamama's where we tasted Asian food.  We tasted seaweed,  bamboo shoots,  chinese peppers and miso soup. We also tasted 'green' juices. They were delicious! We had so much fun learning how to use chop sticks. We even got to taste vegetable noodles!  Take a look here.

The next day we visited Pizza Express where we made our very own pizza!  We kneaded the dough, spread aromatic passata and sprinkled mozzarella cheese onto our pizza base.  It only took 4 minutes to cook!  We were very excited to bring our pizza home so we could share it with our families! 

Look here at our photo gallery.


Open Top Bus Tour

As part of our project 'Our Town' discussing the location and geography of Bournemouth, Year 3 classes Diamonds and Sapphires toured the town on a open top bus. All the children loved seeing the city from the top of the bus, and recognising buildings we have been sketching. A favourite part was our stop at Sandbanks beach for lunch and a play in the park. Take a peek here.

Road to Rio

Olympic fever was still going strong with Year 3 at Jewell Academy. As part of an Olympics-themed day children tried their hands are different activities including fencing, cycling, handball, archery and rowing. The children loved the activities, and showed the Olympic values with their sporting behaviour.  Take a look here.


Welcome to Year 3 Diamonds pupils and parents!  The new Diamonds pupils have really impressed the teachers in the way they have settled into their new routine and new classroom and they have all already made us very proud with their attitude to learning. 

We will be using a reward system in our class called ‘Diamonds points’, ask your child to explain how they can earn these points.  The pupil with the most points at the end of the week gets to be 'Diamond Pupil' for the next week, while teachers will also pick a Jewel of the Week, for a child they have noticed has made an outstanding contribution to the class. 

Please have a look at all the exciting learning opportunities this term in the Diamonds and Sapphires newsletter.  Also included is information regarding homework and reading expectations, PE kits and school routines.

I am always more than happy to meet to discuss your child’s progress and development so please do not hesitate to contact me to book an appointment.

I am really looking forward to the new academic year and hope you are too.

Mr Livesley.
