School Closed for Easter Holidays

 


We have finished Spring 2 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y6..............

We just want to start off by saying a huge well done to all of our Y6 pupils (as well as the rest of the High Hazels community) for their amazing attitudes and efforts in what has been a very strange term!  

When lockdown was announced, our Y6 pupils rose to the remote-learning challenge and adapted incredibly well to the new experiences and expectations.   They engaged in all areas of the curriculum, enjoying reading, writing, maths and story time with their teachers every day.  They even impressed us with their independent study of the wider curriculum, developing their science, history, P4C and RE skills from home.   

Even though we were so impressed with their engagement online, we couldn’t wait to get back into the classroom.  Since coming back to school, our Y6s have been absolutely wonderful: they have settled back in quickly and have shown excellent attitudes to learning in all subjects.  

In maths, we have revisited our understanding of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to support us when converting metric units of measurement.  We have been impressed with their ability to solve multi-step measure problems involving capacity, length and mass.   

In writing, we have written exciting narratives based on the short film ‘Alma’.  We found the video really creepy, and we worked hard to incorporate tension and suspense into our writing so that our readers felt the same way.   

We have particularly enjoyed starting our painting unit in art.  We are studying the artist Cezanne, and we have researched, analysed and critiqued his artwork.  We can’t wait to start developing our painting skills after Easter.   

Overall, Y6 have had the most fantastic term!  We are so glad to be back in the classroom, and we cannot wait to continue developing our skills and knowledge next term.

Ramadan - Fasting information for Y5 &Y6 parents

Dear Parent/Carer

 

As the holy month of Ramadan will start on w/c 12th April we appreciate that some of our older children will be wanting to Fast. It is extremely important that we have parent/carer consent for children who will be fasting.

 

While we understand children will want to Fast we would advise that children below Y5 keep their Fast during the weekend as when they are in school they are very active and at this time of year there a lots of things happening.

 

For Health and Safety reasons if any child becomes unwell during their Fast we will contact parents for permission to give them food and drink. Parents may be advised to take their child home. On a hot day we will also be asking those children who are fasting to stay indoors/in the shade.

Virtual Parents Evening 30th & 31st March

Dear Parents

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to hold face to face parents evening meetings.  We have missed meeting parents, and we want to ensure that until we can meet parents face to face we have a virtual system to discuss pupils progress.

Therefore the school has introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system called school cloud. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments.

School cloud allows parents to have a video consultation with their childs class teacher, and we are confident that parents will find this system simple and easy to use and we welcome any feedback.

We will hold our virtual parent evening meetings on Tuesday 30th March and Wednesday 31st March.  Parents will be sent a letter detailing all the information needed to make appointments, along with parents unique login code.  Nursery parents will be able to speak to Mrs Adlington on Wednesday 31st March

If you have any questions or queries please contact the main school office on 0114 2442189 or email enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk. 

Many thanks for your continued support

Its Week 3 - Lets see what's been happening in Y6..............

We have loved being back at school in year 6! We have particularly enjoyed celebrating British Science Week where we have been able to design and make our own robo-bugs. We have also enjoyed starting our new art unit - painting. We are studying the artist Cezanne and have conducted research into his life and artwork. We cannot wait to start developing our painting skills over the next few weeks.
