Welcome to Hazel Class!

We are the Year Two Children. 

 

Spring 1: A Marvellous Medicine! 

Welcome back, we hope you've had a wonderful Christmas holidays and are ready for a new

term and an exciting topic! This half term our topic work will be based on Roald Dahl's George's Marvellous Medicine. We will be learning about the famous nurses Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell, understanding why they are important people from the past and how they helped to make improvements to medicine that still impact our lives today. 

 

As part of our topic work in Design and Technology, Science and Maths we will be learning about healthy foods and researching, planning and making our own healthy smoothies. We will be researching the favourite smoothie flavours in Hazel Class and using our data to create graphs and tally charts.

Autumn 2: Who Dunnit? 

This half term we will become detectives and will be investigating a crime scene in our classroom! We will be learning about how detectives gather clues and evidence including finger prints and writing Police reports. In our topic work we will be learning about the Gunpowder Plot and the infamous Guy Fawkes and in Art we will be creating our own photo-fit self-portraits.

Our Police Visit from Sgt Cook

We were so lucky in Hazel class because we had a fantastic visit from Sgt Cook the policeman. He answered lots of questions that we asked him about his life as a policeman and he brought in lots of special police equipment to show us- we were even allowed to try on the different police hats! One of the most exciting parts of the morning was when we went onto the playground to look inside the real police van. Thank you so much Sgt Cook- we had a wonderful morning learning all about how a police officer helps other people. 

Autumn 1: Pumpkin Soup Cafe

We begin the year with our first topic 'Pumpkin Soup Cafe' inspired by the Pumpkin Soup stories written by Helen Cooper. As part of our work we will be opening our very own Hazel Class Pumpkin Soup Cafe, designing and making our own soups. We will be writing invitations, menus and recipes. We will be learning about how food is farmed and celebrating harvest with our church festival.

Our visit to Chatsworth Farm and Gardens

On Thursday 3rd October we visited Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. We had a wonderful visit to the Farm Yard where we saw horses, chickens, cows, sheep, donkeys and even Mrs Nayar's favourite animal, guinea pigs!

 

We met Nicola who works at Chatsworth, who told us all about the different fruit and vegetables grown on the estate. We planted our own seeds, which we have brought back to school to water and (hopefully!) watch them grow. We also visited the kitchen garden and saw lots of different fruits and vegetables. The gardener told us about the different pumpkins, courgettes and squash he grows, which are all part of the gourd family. We were kindly given some purple and orange carrots and a pumpkin to bring back to school. 

 

We also really enjoyed exploring the amazing adventure playground! 

Our Pumpkin Soup Cafe

On October 15th we were incredibly excited to open our Pumpkin Soup Cafe! The children worked so hard tasting, planning and finally making their own Pumpkin Soup. The three delicious flavours were 'pumpkin and coconut', ' pumpkin and apple' and 'pumpkin, carrot and coriander'. The children enjoyed being waiters and waitresses for the event, and we had some wonderful feedback from the grown-ups that were able to  join us.
