Do you know any other stories that have superheroes in? 

Which is your favourite?

There will be a spelling test at the end of the half term and we will be practising these words at school as well!


Autumn Term 2019




Each half term we will be learning to read a spell some of the common exception words from the National Curriculum. Here is a list of the words for this half term.


one, once, school, push, pull,

because, climb, child, children, told,

break, pretty, beautiful, class, move,

prove, improve, eye, who,

any, water, parents 


Please help your child to learn to read and spell these words. Remember they don't follow any common spelling patterns so need to be learnt using the look, say, cover, write, check  method. A template for this method can be found on the Hazel Class Page.
