Hazelnut

Welcome to Hazelnut!

 

 

The hazel tree symbolises wisdom and learning, and we are confident that these attributes will feature prominently in this amazing class this year! Hazelnut Class is a Year 2 class, and is taught by Mr Ricks and Mrs Kimpton.

Please note, there is no archived page for the Year 2018-19 as this is a new class.

English - anti-bullying week.

This week in English we have focused on bullying and how we can support each other. We read the story, Monty the Manatee and thought about how he was feeling. We then looked at writing a diary entry and children wrote their own diary entry as if they were Monty!

Children spent the afternoon identifying different objects and predicting whether they would conduct electricity or not. Once they had identified an object that they thought would conduct they then brought them to be tested by Mr Ricks. Our test involved a simple electric circuit to see whether the bulb would light up when the object was connected to the circuit.
