Hazel - Year 1 and 2 2021 - 2022

Mrs Hazeldine

Member of the SLT team

Welcome to Hazel Class!

At Wimboldsley Primary School our vision is to  ‘Achieve Excellence’

Our teacher is Mrs Hazeldine. 

Ms McFerran and Mrs Bancroft work with us in Hazel Class.


How we help children learn
We help children to learn by helping the children to retrieve their prior learning.  We add our new learning and sticky knowledge to this so that we develop a strong and meaningful schema - this is shown on our schema walls in the classroom.  It means that the children are able to know more and remember more of their learning. We help them to ignite their schema by interconnecting the curriculum and by using what is familiar to them within their locality. 


We are in Year 1 and Year 2


This term our topic is 'Childhood- Past and Present'

Teddy Bears Through the Years

This term we are looking at how Childhood has changed over time.

We will compare our teddy bears, our teachers teddy bears  and our grandparents teddy bears and talk about similarities and differences. 

We will also look at how childhood games have changed over time, by comparing to our own childhood.


Goldilocks and Just One Bear by Leigh Hodgkinson

In Literacy this half term we will be reading and retelling the traditional tale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be focusing on character descriptions.

We will also be looking at alternative versions of the story, such as Goldilocks and Just the One Bear.

We will continue to apply our phonics in our reading practise sessions. Don't forget to practise your decodable book using your Collins Ebook login.
