Hazel Class

Welcome to the Hazel Class page!

Welcome back! Our new theme is Oliver Twist and this half term our learning will follow as below:

Week 1 – Look at all food groups as part of healthy and varied diet. Sort packaging into food groups for display ‘plate’.

Week 2 – Focus on Carbohydrates, identifying different types of food that fall into this category and where in the world they are produced. Sample some carbohydrate foods (i.e. pasta, bread, rice).

Week 3 – Focus on Fruit and Vegetables, identifying where different fruits and vegetables are grown and why, i.e. bananas need a hot climate so can’t grow in England. (Make fruit kebabs/plum berry layered pudding) Link to five-a-day scheme as part of healthy eating. Visit allotment in the village.

Week 4 – Focus on Protein, identifying the different types of protein and understanding why we need them. Visit to Melsop Farm. (Make mackerel dip/eat some lentils).

Week 5 – Focus on Fats and Sugar, identifying the difference between good/bad sugars. Where is sugar produced? Why is it used? (Look at packaging of food and the amount of sugar in the item). Look at low sugar alternatives for healthy eating.

Week 6 – Focus on Milk and Dairy products – identify food that falls into this category and be able to explain where these items are produced. (Make no-bake cheesecake and milkshakes).

Bring and Buy Sale

Thank you to everyone who donated toys and books for the sale and who came and brought items too. Hazel Class raised £57.75 to spend on things they would like for the class. We took a vote and decided to spend some money on new Lego! Watch this space for further buys!

‘World Book Day’ Fun

Thank you to everyone who dressed up and joined in with the World Book Day fun – we had an awesome time!


“Dress like a penguin day” – Friday 11th January 2019

Thank you to everyone who took part in dress like a penguin day. We had great fun making penguin hats and chocolate banana penguins, as well as waddling around and looking after our penguin eggs. The children have also produced some wonderful instruction writing as a result.

Mundford Junctions

Next Hazel Class Mundford Junction is on Tuesday 18th June 2019 at 9.10am.

No Plan Day

This week we enjoyed a “no plan day”. Hazel Class suggested ideas and then voted on their favourites, with Chinese New Year collecting the most votes. The children made lanterns, lucky money packets, flags and dragons aswell as learning to dance like a dragon and write their names in chinese. In the afternoon we were lucky enough to receive some chinese food to sample and chopsticks and calendars to take home to remember the day.
