Welcome back to school – and to the brand new Hazel Class! 

I am very proud to be the first teacher of Hazel Class; the children chose the name and we are all excited to set out on this new adventure together.

A new class needs a new classroom and we are expecting ours to be ready for the end of September.  We have been planning our new room (sadly no hot tub or pool table allowed, children!) and we can’t wait to make it our own.

Year 6 is an important year for our children, but this year they have the benefit of being part of a very small class, meaning that I can give them plenty of individual attention.  Mrs Wiles is our TA, working with both Hazel and Willow classes, and there will be many other adults involved in supporting our learning along the way.

It is true that the children in Hazel Class will need to work hard – we all want them to fulfil their potential – but there will be plenty of trips, visits, sporting events and other learning opportunities that will help them to develop and mature in many other ways throughout the year.  I am sure that we can strike the right balance and make their last year of Primary School a happy and fulfilling one.

Parents are welcome to sign up to Class Dojo so that they can stay in touch with what’s going on in Hazel Class on a daily basis.

Here’s to an exciting year!
Mrs Long.


Topic Plan


The curriculum is all the planned activities which we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the curriculum guarantees we as a school provide to develop the independence and responsibility of all of our pupils. We ensure that all children have a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential.

An overview of the curriculum is attached below:

Spelling Lists

The National Curriculum gives guidance on the words children should be able to spell (majority) by the end of an academic year. The list of spellings is attached below:
