Its week 2 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have started our new theme ‘All creatures great and small’. We have read the story ‘Dear Zoo’ which has lots of zoo animals in, the children have enjoyed looking at the animals in the story and using words to describe them such as ‘tall giraffe’ and ‘big elephant’. They have been drawing the animals in their own ‘zig zag book’ and painting pictures of their favourite zoo animal. We have continued with our phonics learning and learnt new sounds including sound ‘p’ and ‘o’. We are so pleased to see the children bringing their phonics homework back to school for the teachers to see! Next week we will continue to learn about more animals that live in a zoo

Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Nursery…………………….

We have had a fantastic term in nursery! We have read lots of traditional tales as our theme was ‘Once Upon A time’. We started the term off reading ‘The three little pigs’. The children enjoyed listening to the story and sequencing the events, building houses using bricks, sticks and straw! On the second week back we welcomed new friends into nursery and helped them settle in by showing them all our toys and playing with them.

We enjoyed the beautiful weather and spent lots of time playing and learning in our outdoor area. The children went on mini beast hunts, cooked in the mud kitchen, played ball games and enjoyed riding our brand new bikes and scooters! In phonics we started learning new sounds with the help of Fred the Frog! The children impressed the teachers with how they have remembered all of the sounds! They completed their phonics homework and brought it back to school to show us! This will really help the children that are moving into reception in September! We continued with our traditional tales stories and read the gingerbread man story.  The children used their creative skills to mix paint and paint pictures of the gingerbread man showing different emotions. We even made our own gingerbread men and took them home to eat! It has been a busy, fun filled half term! We can’t wait for next term when we will celebrate the Queens Jubilee and start our new theme ‘All creatures great and small!’.

Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Nursery…………………….

Platinum Jubilee Celebration Day - Tuesday 7th June

Dear Parents/Carers

On Tuesday 7th June 2022 we will be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. This is our day to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 70th anniversary of taking the throne.

To celebrate this day in school we are asking that children dress up as a King or Queen. We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most creative costume.

Here are some websites to help you create a great outfit.

Throughout the day, children will be taking part in activities celebrating our Queen such as a tea party, creating their own crowns and a corgi treasure hunt. We hope the children enjoy this day and come together to celebrate this special occasion.

Thank you for your continued support

Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have continued to learn more sounds with Fred the frog! We have learnt the sound ‘S’- slither down the snake and ‘d’- down the dinosaurs body up his tall neck and down to his feet. The children have been practising saying, spotting and writing the sounds independently. They have even been completing their phonics homework and been bringing it back to school to show the teachers! We have also been reading the gingerbread man story and remembering what characters are in the story. The children have been painting pictures of the gingerbread man, cutting them out with playdough and retelling the story using props. We can’t wait for next week when we will bake our own gingerbread man and take it home to eat!

Update on Leadership at High Hazels Academy

Dear Parents,

Update on Leadership at High Hazels Academy

We wanted to update you on progress with appointing a successor to Mrs Maqsood-Shah as Principal of the academy.

The recruitment process is, unfortunately, taking longer than we had hoped as we are very keen to choose a candidate with the appropriate mix of skills and experience to suit the school and its community.

Whilst we continue with the process, Mr Paul Graham, who is Principal of our Abbey Hey Primary Academy in Gorton, Manchester and knows High Hazels well, will be working with the Senior Leadership Team to support the successful running of the school. Mr Graham is a highly experienced headteacher and is looking forward to spending time at High Hazels. He will be liaising with Mrs Maqsood-Shah and the Vice Principals this term so that he is fully involved with the planning for the next academic year.  

We will update you on the recruitment process for a permanent Principal when a successful appointment is made.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Tanya Hughes

Primary Regional Director, United Learning
