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?
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.
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.
