Autumn 2022

Welcome to Hazel Class!

Last term, we started the new school year with a story by Shannon Oslen, ‘Our Class is a Family'. As a class, we have welcomed two new members to our class family, and the children have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each other. You will find our Hazel Class album in our classroom, inspired by the story.

Woodland Adventures

In Autumn 1 in English, the children explored many Traditional Tales that inspired them to create their own Traditional tales and story map. The children had great fun retelling and acting out the story of Little Red Riding Hood. During the last few weeks of term, the children’s high-quality text written by Mini Gray, ‘The Last Wolf,’ challenged the children’s creativity and comprehension of what might happen next. As a class, our topic texts inspired our writing and engagement, enabling us to respond confidently to fiction and non-fiction.

Where do the leaves go in Winter?

In the second half of the Autumn Term, the children will explore the class texts ‘Out and About’ by Shirley Hughes and ‘Winter Sleeps’ by Alex Morss. Hazel Class will be inspired to bring these books to life through drama, poetry and writing.

Read Write Inc

As a class, we have daily phonics sessions that aim to consolidate set 1, set 2 and set 3 sounds.

The home reading books are linked to the sounds we are working on in class. This provides an excellent opportunity to practice these sounds at home with your child. We recommend that the children read daily to support fluency. In school, we aim to listen to your child on a one-to-one basis twice a week. Therefore, we ask that your child bring their book bag to school daily.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or catch me on the playground at the end of each school day.
