Welcome to Hazel Class!
There will be two adults working in Hazel Class this year. The class teacher will be Miss Simmons and teaching assistant will be the brilliant Mrs Winkworth. We will work together to support our Year 1 children to learn through a fun, engaging and inspiring curriculum.
We will have:
Monday – Drama and Ballet
Tuesday – Gymnastics and Spanish
Wednesday – Games
We will send spellings home on a Friday. Please practice these over the week, ready for a spelling test the following Friday.
Please work with your child to complete one homework activity each week (see homework planner attached). We will share our home learning at the end of each term in a class ‘gallery’.
Reading at home with your child has a huge impact on their learning. Please read for 5-10 minutes at least 4 times a week, if not every day. Your child can get a new book to read if they drop it in the book box as they come into the classroom in the morning.
Thank you for your continued support at home!
Term 1: Deadly 60
Out topic this term in about dangerous animals. We will consider life as an explorer and journey to wild places. We will become deadly 60 reporters and find out about the creatures in various extreme habitats around the world. In history we will learn about famous explorers both past and present. We will finish our topic with a trip to the Avon Gorge and become real life explorers. See attached for this term’s newsletter, homework planner and topic map.
