“Where Learning Blossoms”




 hazel - year 5

Welcome to the class page for Year 5 Hazel.  

This class page will be updated throughout the school year with pictures, news, curriculum information and external links to useful documents and activities.  

We hope it gives you an insight into life in our class! 




 The gallery will updated throughout the year.


In addition to the weekly spelling and times tables practise teachers will be sending home this year, we have introduced a more creative and fun approach to home learning. Based on the topics your child will be exploring in class, we have included activities from across the curriculum subjects.

During the half term, we expect each child to earn a minimum of 60 points from their homework options. Obviously, if they’d like to complete more, we’d love to see this too! Those pupils who complete individual tasks will be invited to share their creations and research to the class on a Friday afternoon.
