  • I notice you have a diamond 9 activity in this pack. Would it be possible to make up some diamond 9 activities for Keystage 1 and Key stage 2? Maybe a diamond 6 for younger ones? It's a great tool for talking and listening in small groups

    • Hi Juneyreid,
      Thanks for getting in touch! Before I ask our teacher team about this, I was wondering if you could provide a few more details about the particular resources you're looking for? Please try to be as specific as you can, including subject and learning objective, if possible! I look forward to hearing back from you! Have a lovely day :)

    • Activities could be based on a variety of themes. What makes a good friend? most important inventions? My topic next term is the Arctic, There could be a diamond nine activity about a list of items you would need for an arctic expedition. It could also be linked to the rights of the child, a diamond 9 task could be made up for setting up a class charter at the beginning of term. Needs and wants.Prompt cards could also be made up to encourage the children who are completing the task to start their discussion. e.g I agree with you but..... I like the point you made about this but I think...... The prompt cards should encourage children to listen to others. look at people when they are talking, value other peoples opinions but be able to build on them in a constructive way. A blank editable one would also be very useful.

    • Hi Juneyreid,
      Thank you for your fantastic suggestion! Because we receive so many lovely requests each day, we are unfortunately unable to make all of the resources requested (although we do our best!) If we can make your resource we will be in touch to let you know, though we cannot guarantee when it will be completed. If there is anything else I can help with, please let me know! Have a great day :)

    • They were only some suggestions. Talking and Listening is an important part of the CFE curriculum. Activities such as a diamond 9 would mean that specific skills could be taught in a separate talking and listening lesson. Most of your resources are integrated with guided reading and comprehension. It would be be good to have something a bit different.
