Welcome to Hazel classes area of the website. Here you will find all the information you require to support your child in Hazel class this term.
Hazel class is our Key Stage one class and consists of Year 1 and Year 2 pupils.
Mrs Fletcher teaches from Monday to Wednesday and Mrs McGain teaches on Thursday and Friday. The Learning Support Assistants across the week are Miss Webb and Miss Huggett.
PE is on a Wednesday this term. Please make sure you have your child's clearly named PE kit in school each week. Outdoor Learning will be on a Tuesday for Year 1 and Year 2, please can your child bring their outdoor learning kit on this day.
Reading books can be changed each day or when required as soon as your child comes into school in the morning. Library books can also be changed each week on a Tuesday during our Library time. We are looking forward to celebrating World Book day this term on Thursday 7th March.
Each week we practice a new spelling rule to help develop our writing skills. Your child will have been set a weekly spelling assignment on Ed Shed. Please can they access this game based activity for 10 minutes each week to help embed the current weekly spelling rule.
Year 1's are working hard to secure the phonics skills they have been learning since Reception to help them learn to read fluently and in preparation for the statutory Phonics Screening Check. Some children will be bringing home some extra resources to ensure that they can complete the check with maximum confidence. Please see Mrs Fletcher or Mrs McGain if you would like some help supporting your child when practising their phonics at home.
Please remember that if your child has read aloud to a grown-up at home, three times or more each week, they will be given a raffle ticket in return for their efforts, plus a house point for each day they have read. The raffle is drawn each week during our Pride of Punnetts Town Celebration Assembly and a winner can choose a brand-new book or stationary item to enjoy! It really does make a difference to their reading fluency if they practice little (or lots!) and often. Please also support your child at home to learn their next set of Maths Fluency Flashcards. Once these are all completed your child will begin their journey in learning the 2, 10, 5 and 3 times tables.
Hazel Class is full of some very enthusiastic crafters! We welcome any small donations (that would fit in a tray) of craft materials like straws, cake cases, lolly sticks, collage bits, scraps of fabric and wool etc to support their fabulous creations.
