Croeso! Welcome to Dosbarth Hazel,
My name is Miss Cornford I am the teacher of Dosbarth Hazel and I am excited to start our learning journey together! Our topic for this term is ‘The 1960's’ we have lots of fun activities planned and can’t wait to get started learning all about this era! Within Science we will be looking at Light and Forces! In Literacy we will be focusing on Newspapers, Recounts and Explanations, Letters and Short Stories.
PE – Dosbarth Hazel’s P.E. sessions are Tuesday and Wednesday. Children are required to bring P.E. kit which consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit at all times.
Homework – Every Friday children will receive either Maths or Literacy homework. This relates to the learning taken place during the week and it is really important that the children complete this as I can then see if we need to recap on anything if they have been unsure. Children will also on occasions receive Topic based homework which will also relate to their learning in Maths and Literacy. Homework is due in on a Tuesday
Reading and Spellings - Please, try and read with your child for at least 15 minutes a night. This will really help their pace, fluency and therefore understanding of their story. Majority of children are now enjoying Book Blog, we encourage your child to read and blog chapters of their book at home as well as within school. Please ensure children are taking their time when completing their comprehension and vocabulary quiz, we are aiming for 3/3! This ensures they fully understand the book they are reading, allowing them to enjoy their book to the max! Could children’s Reading Record please be signed at least once a week and bought into school on a daily basis. Spellings are given once a week by myself or your child’s Read, Write Inc teacher and need to be practiced on a daily basis so they can be remembered and can become embedded within their writing
TT Rockstars – Please encourage your child to go on TT Rockstars as much as possible, it is a brilliant online game which helps to improve their recall of the times tables. They get to win coins and ‘buy’ things for their character, they all love it and it has a great impact on their recall of the timestables
Thank you for all your continued support, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
