Welcome to Hazel 5!
Our Class Teacher is Mr Nicholson and our
ETA is Mrs Firth
I would like to wish both children and parents/carers a warm welcome to our
class page. Please use this page to check up on all of the exciting learning we
are getting up to. We have an exciting Spring Term planned, Mrs Firth and I
simply can't wait to get started.
In Hazel 5, we believe that learning is magical. We have promised to become
the best version of ourselves by following our core values of Justice, Peace,
Compassion, Friendship and Endurance. We believe that if we encompass these
skills we can achieve anything.
Hazel 5 Weekly Learning Week Commencing 29/04/19
This week we will be working on statistics. Pupils will be analysing a range of data presented in a variety of ways such as line graphs, scatter graphs and bar charts. Pupils will also be analysing information from a table.
In English this week we will be starting our new narrative topic. Pupils will be building up to writing a story as if they were a space explorer. This week we will be analysing science fiction texts and building up a repertoire of topic related vocabulary.
Love of Reading
Our Love of Reading sessions take place three times per week, we are currently studying The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkein. Pupils are thoroughly engaged with this book and we have an amazing array of activities planned for pupils such as making their own weapons and designing their own cryptic Elvish messages. During these sessions pupils will also be exposed to a range of comprehension style questions to prepare them for half termly tests.
Our new Topic in History the term will be the Ancient Greeks. Pupils will learning about how they were influential to our modern day society. Pupils will be creating their own theatre plays, eating Greek food and learning about the Ancient Greek democracy. I simply can't wait to get started on this topic as pupils always thoroughly enjoy it.
As a school we operate an open door policy on a Wednesday after school, if you need to talk to me please drop in. If you wish to speak with me outside of this period then please do not hesitate to contact the school office and I will endeavour to return your call.
Our P.E day is Wednesday and Friday so please ensure your child has a suitable P.E kit in school on this day (a white t-shirt and black shorts). All children will need their swimming kit on a Friday.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday. Each week the children will receive a piece of English and Maths homework. Weekly spellings will be handed out on a Friday. Please encourage your child to learn the different spelling patterns by practising them regularly, ready for the spelling test on the following Friday. (Each spelling pattern will be taught over the course of two weeks). Pupils are also expected to read three times per week, logs are due in every Monday to be checked.
Please encourage your child to also access TT-Rockstars whenever possible in order to practise their multiplication tables. We are currently holding a battle of the bands in Hazel 5 and the winning team will win a prize. Your can access the website here- https://play.ttrockstars.com/
