This year, Hazel Class will learn about Our School and Local Area, Oceans and Seas, Changes Within Living Memory, Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. You will find more information about how each topic is covered in our curriculum maps, which are at the bottom of this page. 

Our trips for the year will be the Science Museum, London Aquarium and a walk to the local river. 

Hazel Weekly Timetable can be found at the bottom of this page. However, it may change due to special events or changes in the calendar. 

Physical Education (PE)

Our PE days are every Monday and Thursday and we have Forest School on a Tuesday, which is run by Mr Duffin.

Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit, which consists of a plain t-shirt, plain joggers/shorts and a plain jumper.  You can now purchase a T-Shirt in the colour of your child's school team. Trainers are also allowed. Your child will stay in their PE kit for the whole day.  For Forest School, your child will need to bring a change of clothes and a pair of wellington boots.


Homework will be set every Friday, and will consist of a variety of Mathletics tasks, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and a writing tasks. Please return the homework on Thursday so it can be checked. 

Reading and Reading Records

We expect your child to read every day. Your child's reading record must be brought in every day to be signed. Reading is such an important part of your child's development so please prioritise this task. 

Our Class Rewards

We have many rewards in Hazel Class, which consist of:

Class dojo points, Golden Globes, stickers and certificates every Friday. Star of the week will get to have a drink and cake with Mr Haylock and Buddy on a Monday afternoon.

On Fridays, one child will take our class bear (Adventure Ted) home for the weekend. These rewards will be given when your child shows us a behaviour or knowledge which is above our usual expectations.
