Welcome to Hazel Class
Staff in our class:

This week we are learning:
Welcome back! We hope you had a well deserved rest after a very long half term!
Our topic this term is all about festivals and light and dark. By the end of the half term we will hopefully be able to answer the question 'what can you see in the dark?' During the half term we will be learning all about Guy Fawkes, Diwali, owls, nocturnal animals and Christmas!
For our first week back we will be learning all about why we have Bonfire night. We will walk into a mystery on Monday morning and will have to work out from the clues who has visited our school while we have been away! The rest of our English work will then link to this and the children will be deciding what our next move should be. We will be working on using capital letters and full stops correctly in our writing.
In Mathematics we will be learning all about division and sharing. We will be learning what the ÷ sign means and how to write it. We will also be looking for any links we can see between multiplication and division.
In phonics we will continue to learn how to write cvcc words, we will learn that all you need to do is add on the initial letter to the cvc word. We will learn how to read and write: spot, step, stop, skip, trip, plan, from, frog, twin, swim
We will also be learning how to spell and write: have, like, some, come

Half Term Homework
"Our children are disconnecting with nature. By the time they are 7 years old, they can identify 200 logos ...... but they cannot identify trees growing in their gardens."
Thank you so much for the fantastic half term homework on trees. I was really impressed with the quality of the tree pictures especially the observational drawings of leaves. I will be adding some of the highlights to the class page. I hope that the activity has enabled you and your children to get out and about in the woods and learning more about trees. There will be other activities for homework and as part of Forest School and science that the children will be doing during the year.
