At Waterfoot School, we think for ourselves but feel for others.

Hazel Class

Welcome to Hazel Class 


Hazel Class is an additional provision which provides a teaching space, teacher and teaching assistant who support a small number of children through personalised, targeted provision.  


Story Telling and Role Play


Story telling and role play is an important part of our learning in Hazel Class.  We particularly enjoy giving the characters different 'voices'  as we retell and act out the story. 

Can you tell which characters Leyton and Rafferty are voicing in these photographs?   

Coca-Cola Truck

Rafferty wanted to design and make his very own cola truck.  He drew out his design on paper and labelled the parts.  Then he chose the materials he wanted to use.  Once his truck was complete, he decided to estimate how many cans of coca-cola his truck would hold.  He had great fun checking to see how well he had estimated.

At The Shop


Mrs Buckley set up a sweet shop so we could practise coin recognition and simple addition of money.  We took it in turns to be the customer and shop keeper.  It was fun working out the totals.  As an extra treat we got to keep some of the sweets afterwards.

A multi-sensory approach to letter formation and learning sight words.


We use different media to help us recognise letters and sight words.  Feeling the letters as we trace over the felt, coloured sand paper and glitter whilst saying the letters, helps us to embed our learning.


Today Leyton has chosen to write the name of his class using colourful beads.


The Three Little Pigs


Retelling familiar stories through play helps children make the story their own and really understand it.  By taking on the different roles, they gain an understanding of the character's thoughts and feelings.

Here are Orson and Leyton re-enacting the traditional story of the Three Little Pigs. 

The big bad wolf looks rather scary!

What time is it?

Joshua has been learning to tell the time in 5 minute intervals.  It is quite a tricky skill to master, especially reading 'minutes to' on an analogue clock, but he has really persevered.  Just look at the wonderful progress he has made this week ...

Who's That Trip Trapping Over My Bridge?


After reading and enjoying the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Orson and Leyton headed out to our amazing school woodland to act out the story.  It was so exciting hiding under the bridge as the horrible troll and trip trapping over the bridge as the billy goat.

The Great 'Hazel' Bake Off


We took our learning into the kitchen this morning and the results were very tasty.  Our master biscuit bakers had to listen carefully to instructions and work cooperatively whilst they weighed, mixed, rolled, cut, baked and decorated.  


Take a look at our brilliant bakers in action ...

First in the kitchen were Orson and Leyton ...

Next came the experts - Joshua and Rafferty ...
