Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community


Welcome to Hazel class. Please look on the website regularly for updates, photos and to find out what we are learning!


Please look on your child's reading record to find out what day their book is getting changed and try to make sure they read four (hopefully five) times a week.


We look forward to an exciting year ahead!
