Welcome to Hazel Class!
Hi, I’m Miss Cornford and I am really pleased to be your child’s teacher this year. We are very lucky to have Mrs Beddows as our full time Teaching Assistant and Ms Maria and Miss Degge supporting various children in the class during the morning sessions.
This term our topic is ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home’ (Wales) and we will learn many new and exciting things. We will be focusing on Chirk and the surrounding area as well as significant landmarks through Wales. We will be looking at significant periods of Welsh history and famous Welsh people.
In Welsh our focus language patterns will include greetings, feelings and the weather.
In Literacy we will be looking at Stories with a familiar setting, Stories with a quest, Traditional Tales with a Twist, instructions and letters. We will be starting with the book The Three Little Sheep.
In Maths learning will include number recognition, place value, addition and subtraction, money and 2D and 3D shapes.
PE sessions are on Tuesday. Children will need to come to school wearing a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts or joggers, a jacket and trainers. Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it.
Reading is a gift for life. Please encourage your child to develop a love of reading through sharing and talking about books, comics and magazines that interest them. A new book will come home every Thursday in a named wallet and to be returned on a Monday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible.
Our school is part of the Healthy Schools Initiative. Please support our school and ensure that your child has a healthy snack every day for morning break eg fruit or veg. Children are provided with a free carton of milk. Also please provide a named bottle of water.
Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it.
End of day arrangements
Please inform the class teacher or Mrs Pearce (School Secretary) if you have made exceptional arrangements for the collection of your child at the end of the day. If arrangement change during the school day please get in touch with Mrs Pearce.
I am looking forward to building positive relationships with yourself and your child this year so if you should have any questions please feel free to come and speak to me - Our door is always open.
Thank you for your continued support, I cannot wait for all the amazing learning opportunities this year will bring.
