Christmas Jumper Day 10th December 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Friday 10th December we are taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Children will be able to come to school wearing a winter themed jumper. This could be one bought in the shops, or made at home. Children could add some tinsel to a jumper they already have. Some children have even made a spotty t-shirt before.

If children want to take part in Christmas Jumper Day, then please use our Just Giving Page. https://christmas.savethechildren.org.uk/fundraising/cjd210018881

You can donate as little or as much as you like on there. Alternatively, you can send £2 to school Friday 10th December. All money raised will go to Save the Children, making sure every child, no matter where they’re born, has essentials like food and water, healthcare, education, protection and shelter.

This week in nursery we have continued our learning on Arctic animals. The children have been looking at books about different Arctic animals and talking about where they live. We have also continued to read 'Lost and Found' and have enjoyed talking about our favourite parts of the story. In maths we have been learning about pattern and identifying different patterns around us. We are looking forward to starting our new story next week all about polar bears!

HIGH HAZELS LANTERN PARADE LIGHTS UP DARNALL

The streets of Darnall were alive with music, dance and light taken when High Hazels Academy staged the return of their annual lantern parade last week.

Held on Friday 5th November, the colourful event was also supported by Sheffield Park Academy, and provided the perfect opportunity for the youngsters to showcase their handiwork, parading their wonderful lanterns down Staniforth Road and up the main road.

Music for the event came care of Darnall Community Gospel Choir, and High Hazels youngest also sang, whilst the moves were provided by Sheffield Park's students with a contemporary dance routine.  The crowds were also entertained by stilt walkers and fire throwers from Innovation Entertainments, which ended the parade in style.

Commenting on the parade, High Hazels Academy’s Principal Mrs Asma Maqsood-Shah said:

“It’s a fantastic event and one which helps to bring the whole community together. The children also love having the opportunity to show off the wonderful lanterns they have made.”

 Dunya news also attended the parade, the full interview can be found by clicking here

Its week 1 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

We have had a busy first week back in nursery! We have been learning about bonfire night and have been making our own lanterns for the lantern parade. We have also been using a variety of materials to make fantastic firework pictures in the creative area. In literacy we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ and taking part in lots of owl themed activities in provision. We have been making owl masks, retelling the story using owl props, making owls using the playdough and drawing our favourite pictures from the story. We ended the week with a visit from Wise Owl Falconry, the children got to watch a real life flying session and even got to hold an owl for a photograph!

Owl Visit for Nursery & Reception Children - Friday 5th November

Dear Parent / Carer, 

As part of our topic on ‘Autumn’, we have been looking at nocturnal and woodland animals.   

On Friday 5th November we have invited the Wise Owl Falconry to visit us with a range of birds including owls to support our understanding of their way of life. To help us fund this visit we are asking for a contribution of £3.00 to be payable via the arbor app which will include a photo of your child with a bird.  

The company and the school have put a detailed risk assessment to ensure all safety measures are in place and in line with government guidelines. 

 In the meantime, why not visit their website with your child at https://www.wise-owl.co.uk/  and discuss different birds of prey 

 

Thank you in advance for your support. 

 

Yours sincerely, 

Owl Visit for Nursery & Reception Children - Friday 5th November
