Hazel Class

Welcome to Hazel class!


In Hazel class we follow the Early Excellence model of learning, this means that we have an exciting learning environment that is still growing and developing and that meets the needs of all children through a mixture of continuous provision and enhanced provision along with more formal, traditional adult led teaching. 


The class teacher is Miss Rivera and we also have Mrs Fletcher, an HLTA, to support in our class. We also have lots of lovely parent helpers who come in to help out and hear children read! 


A typical day will start with registration then phonics, literacy, Assembly and then play time . After play we will have maths. We finish at 11.45 to get ready for lunchtime which is at 11.50am. In the afternoons we will cover science and the foundation subjects. 


Children will need to wear their PE kits to school on  Monday's and Thursdays and stay in their kit all day. They do not need plimsoles for indoor PE but they will need Trainers (not plimsoles) for all out door PE. They also do yoga in their bare feet, Yoga happens on a Wednesday afternoon. 


Children in Hazel class have constant access to fruit, milk and water and serve themselves their own snacks and drinks when they need them, we do also monitor this and ensure children have had a drink throughout the day. Children can bring a water bottle too as when we go our for PE or at lunchtime, on hot days especially, children can have constant access to it.

Early Years Foundation Stage

Below is a link for you to follow. This is a good comprehensive parents guide 

about EYFS and what to expect. Its has lots of useful information about how to help your child throughout their early years.

There are 7 areas of learning, the prime areas are called this because they underpin the other 4 areas. 

Each area of learning has up to 12 statements for assessment purposes. We assess these as to what we see in school but we value your input from what you see at home .Please share anything with us that you feel we may not have seen in school, particularly 'Physical development' at this time. 



The link below has some good games on it that are free. Always choose games appropriate to your child's ability, it is best that they practice what they know rather than learning a new skill.

Mr Thorne Does Phonics - Episode S

Watch UK school teacher Mr Thorne and Youtube sensation Geraldine the Giraffe take you on a learning journey through the world of phonics, grammar, spelling ...

We have now completed the phonemes s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d
please find Mr Thorne to practice these at home.

Letter formation chart and the rhymes we say in class to help the children remember them.

Phase 2 phonic sounds are;

s, a, t, p, i,n,n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss


Phase 3 phonic sounds are;

j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er, 


The sounds are taught in this particular order so that your child can quickly blend words from learning just a few sounds. eg when they learn s,a,t,p,i,n, they can sound out simple words like, pin, sat, tip, at, in, nit, tap etc. 

We will learn the letter names at a later time, so for now just concentrate on the sound the letter makes. If you are unsure of how to pronounce these sounds please just ask.

You will be amazed how quickly they can begin to read simple words.
