Welcome to Hazel Class

Miss Maidman, Mrs Elliott and Mrs Montebello


The Celts believed hazelnuts gave one wisdom and inspiration.

Term 1 - Extreme Earth

Welcome back! Our first topic will be EXTREME EARTH (Natural Disasters). 

In English lessons we like to link the book to the topic; our first book study will be Kensukes Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. This is an excellent book to start the school year with and will help us with our writing, going back through what we have learnt in Year 2 and then being able to develop a piece of descriptive writing, using senses. Year 4's, this allows the opportunity to develop your skills from Year 3 and putting all the things we have learnt into practice, ready to move on to Year 4. 

Within Maths, we will be starting of the year looking at place value and number, looking at 3, 4 and even 5 digit numbers, understanding their value and how to read and write these correctly. 

During Topic lessons, we will be looking at diffrerent natural disasters, seeing how they occur, what effect they have on the planet and what we can do to help. 

Our Science focus this term is Sound. Looking at how sounds are made, looking at patterns within sound and how our ears work. 


As you can imagine the first term back will be slightly different for a number of reasons. Please help us to keep children and staff as safe as possible. 

- Please ensure your child has a water bottle (named) in school every day and their book bag, NO rucksaks and any items bought in from home. 

- Please encourage the children to wash their hands regularly for at least 20 seconds before drying throughly.

- Encourage your children to use the toilet facilities independently and in a tidy manner - this includes using toilet paper and flushing. 

- Modelling how to keep a safe distance whenever possible. 


As we have not been able to have a transition meeting, please take a look at the YouTube video I have recorded which should hopefully answer any questions you may have.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf_-rzTbAFM
