Hazel Class is a group of 27 Year 3 and 4 children led by the hardworking team of Mrs Burland, Mrs Lenton and Mrs Hulbert.
During the day, we study English, Maths, a range of topics and subjects including Geography, History, Science, RE, PSHE, French, Art, ICT, Music and PE.
Our current topic is 'The Ancient Maya Civilisation'.
Our spelling week in KS2:
Monday - Learning the spelling rules for that week, writing them out and exploring a selection of words including some of those from the Y3/Y4 government spelling list (see below).
Tuesday - Dictionary skills and writing definitions of the word including which word class they are from.
Wednesday - Writing the word in context - using the word correctly within a sentence; this is especially important within homophones (words that sound the same with different meanings, e.g. here/hear).
Thursday & Friday: Spelling games, personal spelling list - children enter any words they have spelt incorrectly during the week into their yellow reading records, they practise these words and any they may have left over from Year 2 (the slips of paper stapled into the children's reading record).
Tests in school:
Half termly - A quick test of approx 20 words picked out from all the words learned that half term.
MAT test - A longer end of term test taken three times a year and used to compare children across the school.
Year 3/Year 4 spelling words: See below for the government list of words for Year 3 & Year 4. All children have these in the back of their English book. These only make up some of the words we learn throughout these two years.
Parents and Guardians - Please feel free to contact me in the usual way, just after or if really urgent, just before the school day. If this is not appropriate, then you can make an appointment at the school office.
