Our new Hazel Class children are settling in very quickly and we are very proud of them all.
All families should now be connected to Tapestry and have full access to your child's learning. If you are experiencing any problems logging on please do let me know. We welcome your likes and comments on observations of your children and love to see photographs of their learning and Wow moments at home too!
Maths in Hazel Class
We teach for Mastery in Maths and allow our pupils to gain a deep understanding in order to make continual progress and move onto more complex concepts. Maths is a subject that everyone can and should be able to perform confidently and competently. We choose to teach by breaking down Maths objectives into the smallest steps, so that every pupil is secure in every new concept before moving on.
Recommended books to support learning
Welcome to Hazel Class Powerpoint
At our school we use a programme called Story Time Phonics which implements the systematic phonics programme Letters and Sounds in a multisensory way. Story Time Phonics teaches the specific sounds of each Phonics phase, using real books to embed learning in a memorable way. Children have time to practise and rapidly build their ability to read and spell words. They are also taught to read and spell ‘tricky words’ (also known as Tricky Troll words) – words with spellings which are unusual or haven’t yet been taught. As your child learns sounds and words we will add them to their Phonics Home Learning book so that you can help them practise them and support their learning and recall of them. We will share further information about Phonics with all parents and carers during the Autumn term.
To see and hear how each Phonics sound (phoneme) should be pronounced correctly, please watch the video below.
Reading with your child
Please read regularly to and with your child. There really is no better way to build their confidence in reading and writing. Please find below some tips on how to support your child with reading.
