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:

Tuesday – Ballet / Gym

Wednesday – Games

Thursday – Ballet / Gym

We will send 5 spellings home on a Friday. Please practice these over the week, ready for a spelling test the following Friday. We have a spelling challenge, where each child has the chance to move through the solar system to reach the sun (completing 100 spellings).

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: Dangerous Dragons

Our topic this term is focusing on Dangerous Dragons. We will be exploring stories about the magical world of dragons and castles in literacy. We will be creating masks in Art and DT, and making links to real dragons around the world in Geography. In History, we will research dragon myths and the medieval world.
