On Number Day the children really enjoyed exploring symmetry in different ways!
It is great to have seen so many of you join us for our library sessions this term. The children really enjoy reading with you and getting to choose a book together to take home! We hope to see even more of you this coming half term. Our library visit takes place every Friday at 2.45pm.
Date for your diary: Our Maths with Mummy Mothers Day event will take place during the afternoon of Friday 20th March - please do return your reply slip so we can be sure of numbers for the session.
Keep up-to-date with your child's learning on Tapestry. We love to hear about all the wonderful learning that happens at home so please do add your observations too!

New Power of Reading Text - Yucky Worms
We will be starting our new Power of Reading text after half term. It has elements of Non-Fiction in it and we will be learning about the differences between different types of book. Please find the latest Home Learning Opportunities sheet below. We look forward to seeing your contributions on Tapestry.
As you know, we use Jolly Phonics to support teaching of sounds. Please take the time to read the sound cards issued to your child with them and talk about the sound, the action and the song they have learned for each. We use songs from Jolly Phonics which are a fun and active way to learn the sounds. Why not download the Jolly Phonics app?
How should the sounds be pronounced?
Please see the video below to ensure you say sounds correctly
Since Christmas we have been teaching sounds and tricky words from Phase 3 and Hazel Class have been enjoying singing along to the song below! Tricky words are the ones that we can not sound out - children just have to learn them!
Reading with your child
Please continue reading regularly 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 as provided in your Hazel Class Learning Leaflet.
