  • On Monday we explore the outdoors in our Outdoor Learning, Muddy Monday. Children will need warm clothing and wellington boots. These can be left on your child's peg.
  • Tuesday is our PE day. The children will need their PE kit in school, this consists of plain black jogging bottoms or shorts, a white t-shirt and jumper. They will also need black pumps.  
  • Please read with your child as regularly as possible. The more they practise, the more confident and fluent your child will become. The children will read with an adult in school three times per week. 
  • Books will be changed every Friday. Please sign your child's reading book when you have read with them. We love to read your comments, so please write in your child's reading record how they have done with their reading at home.
  • Snack and water is available daily.
  • Home learning will be set every Friday. Evidence to support this Home Learning can be uploaded to the Google Classroom. The virtual classroom is an excellent place to share home learning or anything exciting you have done at home, that your child would like to share with their friends in Hazel Class. 

If you do have any questions then please get in touch. My email address is - alternatively I am around most days both before and after school.

Our Learning

In Hazel class we aim for the children to be happy and confident in all that they do. We aim for the children to thrive in learning and friendship and love coming to school each day. Everyday is an opportunity to learn and develop as we try to be the best that we can be. We believe in ourselves, celebrate our differences and encourage each other everyday.  We are all part of the Hazel Class family.

In Hazel Class, wellbeing is very important and we aim to nurture friendships within our children endeavouring to teach them how to Believe in God, ourselves and others.  This is strengthened by showing them how to live by the Virtues.  We want to encourage curiosity about the world around us and grow their independence. Our classroom environment is neutral having natural light, lots of wooden resources and fairy lights and lamps to help to create a calm and cosy space. We strive to show children the importance of stories and story telling. We learn through exploration, talk and team work. Our class Hazel family is very important to us all and we want to achieve for others and ourselves.

Throughout the year we plan lots of exciting trips and learning opportunities, which engage the children in their learning and ensure they have the #bestdaysoftheirlives. These WOW moments inspire the children's conversation , enthusiasm and a quest for learning! Please follow us on Twitter @stjosephskly where we will show you some of their daily learning and follow our lovely class #SJKHazelClass.
