Welcome to Hazel Class!

We are the Year Two Children. 


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.

Pumpkin Soup Cafe


We have had a busy week preparing for our 'Pumpkin Soup Cafe'! We have made three delicious soups; 'pumpkin and apple', 'pumpkin, carrot and corinader' and 'pumpkin and coconut milk'. We then used our best handwriting to create a menu for the opening of the 'Pumpkin Soup Cafe'. Many of you were able to join us on Wednesday at the Pumpkin Soup cafe and were lucky enough to be waited on by the boys and girls from Hazel Class. The soup was tasted and enjoyed by you all and we enjoyed reading your extremely positive feedback cards.

              Autumn 2: Who Dunnit?


Our exciting new topic this half term is 'Who Dunnit?' which will focus on looking at how police and detectives help us. As part of our work we will begin by sharing our topic homework about the police force.  We will then become detectives ourselves;having to work together to solve a mystery in Hazel Class. 

Crime Scene in Hazel Class!

Earlier this month a crime was committed in Hazel Class!! The suspect entered the classroom and ate a whole bowl of porridge without asking! It was up to the class detectives from Year 2 to look at the evidence and solve the mystery. We were lucky enough to find some CCTV footage of the incident.

Police Visitor in Hazel Class!

On Wednesday it was an incredibly exciting morning for us all in Hazel Class  because we had a visit from Sgt Cook . Sgt Cook spoke to us about his role as a policeman and then he showed us lots of police equipment that he had brought in. We even got to try on some of the different police hats! One of the highlights of the morning was when we went outside onto the playground to look at the actual police riot van. Sgt Cook even let us have a look inside the van and answered any questions that we had about it. We all had such a fun morning- thankyou so much Sgt Cook! 


Spring 1: A Marvellous Medicine!


This half term we have another exciting new topic , ‘A Marvellous Medicine’. We will be reading Roald Dahl’s fantastic George’s Marvellous Medicine, learning about how to stay fit and healthy and we will be learning all about famous nurses who changed medicine for the better. As part of our work we will begin by sharing our topic homework about 'medicine'.  This will be displayed as usual in the classroom on our topic display board.

Visit from Dr Brown!

On Tuesday it was such an  exciting morning for us all in Hazel Class  because we had a visit from Dr Brown . Dr Brown spoke to us all about her role as a GP and then we had the chance to ask her lots of exciting questions. After that,  Dr Brown showed us lots of her medical equipment and even let us have a go with some of it (we really enjoyed trying on the gloves). At the end of the visit Dr Brown gave us a quiz about lots of fun medical facts which we all really enjoyed. We all had such a fantastic morning- thankyou so much Dr Brown.




Paramedics Visit Hazel Class!

What an exciting week it has been for us all in Hazel Class.......... following on from our amazing visit from Dr Brown we had the pleasure of welcoming Kerry and Dave the paramedics into our class. They spoke to us about their role as a paramedic and answered any questions that we had about being a paramedic. Afterwards we were so excited because we went outside to have a look at the ambulance that was parked on the playground. The sirens were switched on for us and we were even allowed to have a look inside the ambulance! Later on we went back into the classroom and Kerry and Dave brought lots of their medical equipment  in for us to have a look at. We had such a fantastic time, thank you so much Dave and Kerry.

Spring 2: Amazing Africa!

This half term we have another exciting topic to explore, ‘Amazing Africa!’. We will be learning lots about Africa and we will be looking at African animals. We are getting very excited about our trip to Twycross Zoo where we will hopefully be able to spot some African animals. Throughout this half term we will also be spending time preparing for our special Mother’s Day and Easter services at church.

Our Amazing Trip to Twycross Zoo!

Today we went on a fantastic trip to Twycross Zoo along with the Year 1 children. We had such a lovely day and we were incredibly lucky with the glorious sunny weather that we had. We saw lots of amazing animals and we even attended a workshop about the habitats of African animals.

World Book Day!

On Thursday 7th March we had a fantastic time celebrating World Book Day. We all turned up to school dressed as some of our favourite book characters; spending time together sharing the books that we love to read.

Summer 1: Amazing Africa

African Jewellery

We have had so much fun researching, designing and making our own African style necklaces. We've worked really hard, showing lots of determination and we're sure that you will all agree that they look amazing!


The children will be given weekly spelling and mathematics homework. Homework will be given out every Wednesday and will be due in the following Tuesday. Finished homework can be left in the homework trays at the front of our classroom at anytime throughout the week. 


Spelling homework: these are linked to the spelling patterns we will be learning in our daily grammar and punctuation and phonics sessions. The children will be asked to write one sentence per spelling, using their best handwriting and checking they have spelt the word correctly. The children should make sure they learn their spellings for the test on Wednesday.


Mathematics homework: this will be linked to last week's maths lessons to recap and practice the skills we are been learning. 


If you have any questions about homework please ask.
