Welcome to Hazel Class!

We are Year 1 and 2 and our teacher Miss Arblaster Mrs Marchant is our TA

We are a class full of enthusiastic year 1 and 2 children and with a great classroom and a large outdoor area to learn in. In Hazel class we are becoming the best learners we can be whilst engaging in a broad and balanced curriculum. Being in Hazel class is an exciting change as we progress further into KS1. We will use our gem powers to maximise our potential, these include perseverance, asking for help, bouncing back from disappointment and defeating monster distractions! We have daily phonics, English, Maths and engaging unit lessons to learn and embed our key skills. These key skills are enhanced further through enhanced provision in our outdoor area.   

This year (2022-2023) we will be learning more about some of the following topics: 


  • How Chippenham and the surrounding area have changed through time  

  • Anglo Saxons 

  • Mary Anning  

  • Bonfire night  


  • Seasonal change  

  • Animals and their habitats  

  • Human life cycle  

  • Light  


  • Locational knowledge and developing geographical skills  

  • Geography of the UK  

  • Continents and Oceans  

  • Human and physical features   

Art and DT  

  • Food  

  • Junk modelling  

  • Drawing skills  

  • Mechanical systems  

  • Self-portraits  

We will have lots of opportunities for ‘hands-on learning' through enhanced provision and we are looking forward to growing into the best learners we can be.  

Miss Arblaster and Hazel Class.

Weekly Reading 

Please try to hear your child read at home 3 times a week and record this in their blue diary. Books will be changed weekly. Your child should read their book at least 3 times: the first time for decoding, second time for fluency and lastly for comprehension.

Adults: remember to ask questions about the text both as you go along and at the end. Ask your child to think of a different ending or predict what might happen when the story is over. Talk about the setting, characters, meaning of new words and enjoyment of the story.

Big Cat Collins ebooks

In addition your child should has a log in for the ebooks which will give them access to a selection of books allocated to them. These books match their current phonic level and are decodable. Please see letter below for further clarification.
