All about your class teacher                                            Hazel class

    My favourite subjects are history and geography.

I enjoy learning about different historical events, especially ancient civilisations.  

My favourite ancient civilisation are the Incas of ancient Peru.

I love travelling.  My favourite place in the world is Iceland as 

you can visit volcanic craters, walk on the glaciers and if you

are very lucky see the aurora borealis ('Northern Lights').  

I also love to read, mainly crime novels.  My favourite 

author is James Patterson.

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.

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.
