ARP - Hazel Class

Children attend the ARP from Key Stage One (years 1 and 2). Therefore the ARP curriculum incorporates both topics from across these year groups as well as incorporating skills from EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), where appropriate.


Welcome to the ARP- Hazel Class

Spring Term 2 2024



This half term we will begin by reading ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Browne. We will taste the different fruits from the story and use adjectives to describe them. We will then read ‘There’s a Tiger in the Garden’ by Lizzy Stewart. We will use it to explore a garden setting and write simple reports about tigers.


In phonics we will continue working on our Phase 3 sounds. We will say the sounds for the graphemes ‘igh’, ‘oa’ and ‘oo’. We will practise our oral blending and segmenting- saying n-igh-t and then blending it to make ‘night’ or saying ‘moon’ then segmenting it to say m-oo-n.


In maths we will be subtracting by counting back on our number tracks. We will write number sentences using - and = to record our calculations. We will have lots of fun using rulers, balances and cups to compare and measure length, mass and capacity.


At home, please encourage your child to practise counting to 20. Don’t forget to tell them to go backwards too– and to try starting from different numbers! When they get really good at this, try counting to 30 or higher! Please keep using Bug Club to support our learning in phonics too.
