End of Term Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers

Please click here to view the end of term newsletter.

It has been a challenging, enjoyable and very productive half term at high Hazels. Reflecting on what we have done and achieved thus far, fills me with pride and humility to be part of such an amazing staff team who all work hard together for the better of all our pupils and to serve our supportive community. We have completed our end of term assessments for all year groups where our pupils have demonstrated the fantastic progress gained in this Autumn term. Well done to all our pupils, their determination and resilience is commendable.

This half term tarted with our annual High Hazels Lantern Parade on the 5th of November, and I am sure you will agree with me that it was a resounding success. For this I am grateful to all the local councillors Mary Lea and Zahida Naz, South Yorkshire police, Darnall Well-Being, Sheffield Park Academy, Local youth clubs and our fantastic PTA. The success of this event is due to the meticulous planning of our school leaders, creativity of our pupils and the support of all the mentioned groups and organisation, without whom this event would not be possible.

As always, our pupils have received a full complement of an exciting curriculum and enrichment offer including theatre visits, inter school sports tournaments, after school clubs, Reception Christmas singalong, swimming offer to Years 3 and 4, end of term parties, Christmas jumper and Children in need fund raising events, just to list a few.

This half term we have been able to restart our face-to-face parental engagement offers cautiously and carefully such as: family learning, toddler group, coffee morning, reading workshops, weekly achievement assemblies, PTA meetings, parent consultation meetings.

How you can help us next term:

  1. We need parent volunteers to support or free breakfast offer for all pupils.  From January all our pupils will receive a free breakfast bagel in the morning as part of our commitment to ensure all pupils have a great start to their learning day with a healthy breakfast. To this end I am reaching out to all of our parents to ask for parent volunteers to support us in the mornings in preparing this breakfast. You can volunteer for 1 hour for any day in the week. If you or anyone in your family has the capacity to support us with this than please speak to your child’s class teacher.
  2. We need a parent working group to consider our Relationships Health and Sex Education curriculum consultation. If you are a parent and would like to be part of this working party, then please contact the school office, and let us know. The group will begin their work/consultation with myself in January week beginning 10th of January. I am hoping to be able to go out to full parent body consultation by the end of January in order to complete the consultations by February half term. This will then allow the RHSE policy to be ratified and in place from March 2022.

Finally I would like to thank all our pupils, staff, governors and parents for their continued support and efforts.

Wishing all our school communities a Happy New Year and a very merry festive season.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Principal

New Spring Enrichment Clubs for Y2

 


Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y2…………………….

Year 2 have had a successful Autumn term where they have really settled back into school and making progress with their learning.

Through our topic ‘Mini Mappers”, we have learnt all about Maps and scales, we have also investigated weather patterns in Darnall.  We created a map of our classroom to scale and created a around the classroom.  We used the compass points to give directions. We really enjoyed our learning.

In English, we have been using the text Proudest blue.  We have explored the language used and used the beautiful pictures to describe the setting of the picture. We wrote our own personal narratives. We also studied a story called “Lubna’s Pebble”; this text was all about a young refugee who had a pebble for a best friend. During our reading lessons we have been reading short texts that we are learning to read fluently and then answering questions about the text.

In phonics, we have been learning all our Set 2 and 3 sounds. We have been finding our sounds in words and practising reading our words quickly without sounding them out. We have all done our Phonics screening check. Well done Year 2, for working so hard on your phonics.

In Maths, we have finished learning about Place Value. We are now learning addition and subtraction. Starting off by looking at patterns when adding and subtracting and then we started to look at adding and subtracting 1s and 10s to a number.

In Design & Technology, we have been learning about food, we had to make a healthy pizza. We researched different bases, designed, and made a pizza. After the making process we evaluated our pizza’s.

In computing, we have learnt all about Information Technology around us. We also learnt how to resize objects on a computer. It was quite tricky but we did it.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching year 2 this half term and getting to know their new classes. It has been a successful start to the year, and we are all impressed with the year group’s enthusiasm for learning and determination to do their best.

We wish all of the children a restful break and say Merry Christmas to all of the families that celebrate Christmas.

Well done Year 2.

The Year 2 team.

 

Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y2…………………….
