About Your Class Teacher

My favourite subject is PE, I love being active and enjoy going to the gym. 

I love to read and try to read at least one book a month. My favourite author as a child was Jacqueline Wilson and read most of her books, with my favourite being 'The Bed and Breakfast Star'. I have also read all of the Harry Potter books multiple times both as an adult and a child. 

 I love to travel, I love to see different cultures, foods and ways of life. My favourite place I have visited is Nashville!

Important things to remember.

 

Homework

Homework is set on Purple Mash each week. Your child will have an English and maths 2do. This will go live on a Friday and you have until Wednesday to complete it. Please speak to a member of staff if you are struggling to access Purple Mash.

Spellings

Spelling records are sent home on a Friday but are also set as a quiz on Purple Mash.  Children can always access their spellings via Purple Mash.  Children must hand their spelling record book in by Thursday of each week as we have a spelling test every Friday.

Reading

It is very important for your child to build up confidence and fluency in reading. Please read with your child and log this in their reading record book. Your child can read as many times as they’d like at home but they will only move up the reading read once. We will check each week and move children along the reading race if they have read at home. 

PE kit

PE is on a Friday afternoon.  We do ask children to have their PE kits in school by Wednesday.

WOW! We really do not stop in Hazel class. We have had yet another week of fun learning - from performing myths and fairy tales, to learning about more shapes and angles, to looking at the work of Roald Dahl, to watching the final performance of The Promise AND meeting Nicola Davis the REAL, LIFE author of 'The Promise', to finally watching Year 6 perform their least performance at Ingram Road Primary!! They were truly amazing!

What another busy week of learning!! The children completed their assessments and they all blew me away. Every child in Hazel can be super proud of themselves! In amongst all the assessments, Hazel continued with their learning. We did some shared reading, had a drumming lesson, completed translating shapes in Maths and had Sports Day. Just look at some of the amazing photos.

WOW!!! What an amazing week. The children have really worked hard during assessment week and have produced some truly spectacular results. I have been smiling for the last few days. I am so proud of all my class. In amongst the hard work of assessments, Hazel have been looking at how different types of litter harms not only our living environment but also the animals. The children have created posters to put up around school. here are just a few examples.

Yet another week packed full of learning new skills!! It has been a week were Hazel class needed to have resilience and they definitely proved that they do!!! All of the children have been completing the multiplication test check in maths and I am extremely proud of them all. Everyone has made a huge effort to learn all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. Every child did their best and that is all I can ask for, so VERY well done!! I think they love the DT sewing (although I don't think a few children would actually say so!!) Hazel class have also been involved with the opera, 'The Promise', learning to sing and learn all about the story.

WOW!!! What an amazing start to the half term. Hazel class have had a VERY busy week. We kicked it off with our trip to Herd Farm which took us back in time through the Bronze and Iron Age. We did a little bit of hunting and gathering, sat in round houses and even learned how to make a fire using only flint and material! It was AMAZING!!! We also starting our DT learning on sewing, learning over-stitch, back stitch and running stitch. It is NOT as easy as you think. We also had a trip to Slung Low and participated in one of their new productions. "It was the best experience ever!' according to Ibraheem

WOW!!! What an amazing end to this half term. Everyone has worked extremely hard to put together our Skara Brae topic book and it looks stunning. The children have also completed non-chronological reports all about the life of Queen Elizabeth II. They have made a book especially for her and it will be posted this afternoon. We are all hoping that she will reply. Then we held our very own Platinum Jubilee Street party! Big thank you to all the adults who prepared the food. It was very enjoyable. PARENTS please do not forget to sign the on line consent form for our trip to Herd Farm. Hazel class will go on the first day back!!!

Hazel's Amazing Week of learning. We have had such fun this week! From completing our own Warning Tales (which were fantastic by the way); to creating our own graphic novels; to beginning our Jubilee preparations to recreating Stone Henge in a modern way. I will apologise for not uploading a completed Stone Henge photograph but the children had other ideas (see the last photo!!!!)

Hazel have had another great week of learning! They have embraced cave art, learned about hunters and gathers during the Stone Age as well as studying Star Carr which was an ancient site for Sone Age people. Hazel class produced their very own book all about the Stone Age. Here are just a few examples! The children have also been planning their own Warning Tale for their English writing next week. We had some amazing ideas and I cannot wait to read the final stories.

Hazel class had had a super week of learning. They have become budding journalists reporting on an incident for their Warning Tale. They have also completed their bikeability lessons. Very well done to every Year 4 child for their hard work and effort. A huge big shout out to Liya who couldn't ride a bike at the start of the week but ended up 'flying' by the end of it!!!

Our Learning week beginning 25th April. Hazel class have had some amazing geography and English lessons.
