Welcome to Hazel Class's homepage!

We have an exciting term ahead of us in Hazel Class, where we will be kicking off our exciting Space topic. All term Hazel Class will be learning about Space through the eyes of Buzz Lightyear. Our main focus will be the historical event of the first moon landing and we will also be making space rockets and learning about the Solar System.

Reading

By the first week of term every child will have a Reading Record. We hear children read individually once a week. Please hear your child read as often as possible (little and often usually works best). We regularly assess children's reading and will notify you when they have moved up to a new level. On top of this, we do Guided Reading three times a week. This is where we read a class story together, discussing events, characters and introduce new vocabulary. 

 

P.E

This term we will be having gymnastics on a Tuesday. In a change to last year, children should bring their P.E kits in at the start of term and keep them in school on their peg. Therefore, they will arrive and leave school in their school uniform as usual. 

 

Spellings/Homework

Homework is set every Friday and should be handed in by the following Thursday. Homework will be linked to our learning in class and we expect it to be completed to a high standard. 

Spellings will be set every Friday and children will be tested on them the following Friday. These will be linked each week to our class phonics. 

 

Snack

Snack costs 50p a week and should be paid for via out online payments system. Alternatively, you may provide a healthy snack for your child yourselves. 

 

If you need to speak to me at any point about any aspect of your child's school life then please don't hesitate to ask for an appointment, call the school or email me at hazel@bellefield.wilts.sch.uk

Good morning Willow/Hazel and Chestnut Classes,

In our Science learning this term we are investigating materials and their properties.  Go on a material hunt around your home and see how many different materials you can find.

Can you find things made from metal, glass, wood, plastic?

Draw and label the objects that you find and sort them according to their properties.
