Its Week 4 - Lets see what's been happening in Y6..............

In music this half term, we are learning about jazz, looking at the origins and the instruments that are prevalent in this type of music. This week, we have developed our skills on the glockenspiels, practising using an array of notes. Next week, we will be starting the composition element of our unit, and we are excited to apply our skills.

Bug Club information and guide for parents

Dear Parent or Carer,

Our school is using a reading system called Bug Club.  Please click here to view parents guide to access Bug Club

What is Bug Club?

Bug Club is a levelled reading scheme, which ensures that your child has access to books at their level. All of the books are available online and each child has their own personalised homepage.

Using Bug Club

To access Bug Club online then go to the website:

www.bugclub.co.uk

The school ID is nrsg

Each child will be allocated their own unique username and password. If your child loses theirs, please ask for a replacement.

Reading a book online

Your child is allocated a book according to their reading level. These books will appear in the ‘My Stuff’ area on their homepage. Throughout the books there are questions for your child to answer based on the book that they are reading. Teachers will be able to see your child’s response through the teacher site. To answer a question just click on the bug icon.

When your child has answered the questions in a book, they will earn coins. These coins can then be used to buy ‘a reward’ from the reward scheme.

Teachers will be able to allocate more books when your child is running low in their account.

How to help your child

  1. Find time to sit with your child so that you can share the online books with your child.
  2. Talk to your child about the book that they are reading. Look at the front cover and talk about what the book might be about.
  3. Listen to book together and help your child to follow the words. This can be done my clicking on the speaker icon.
  4. After listening to the book get the child to read the book to you.
  5. Re-read the book again if needed so that they can read the book fluently before moving on to the next book.
  6. Aim to read two books a week so that quality time can be spent reading each book.

Remember: books should be read more than once so that your child can become fluent readers.

If you need help

If you need any help with Bug Club, please ask your child’s class teacher.

Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Y6..............

We are delighted to share the outcomes of our DT projects. We have designed and made a mechanical toy using sawing, cutting and measuring skills as well as our understanding of how cams work.  We have evaluated our final products, thinking about our successes and areas for improvement. We found this really tricky, but we did not give up!

Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 9th November

Dear Parents/Carers

Our first week back after half term has started with an announcement from the government of a second countrywide lockdown from Thursday 5th November. The main difference for educational institutions in this second lockdown is that all schools will remain open for all pupils. I, therefore, ask that you continue to send your child/ren to school unless s/he has to isolate or has another illness that prevents them from attending school. At High Hazels Academy, we continue to go above and beyond to ensure that our building remains as safe as possible, that our offer of a high of quality educational provision is maintained and that our pupils' and staff's health and well-being remains at the heart of all that we do. We have maintained high levels of cleaning, employed additional daytime cleaning staff, and implemented a whole range of preventative measures. I am proud to say that our staff and pupils have responded positively to many changes. This has been possible due to your support, for which I am grateful.

However, I would once again want to urge all parents to observe social distancing rules and wear a face mask during drop off and collection times for the safety of all. I am also asking for further cooperation in ensuring that if your child or anyone in your household has any Covid-19 symptoms (high temperature, persistent cough, and/or loss of sense of smell/taste) then please DO NOT send your child to school. This also includes if anyone in your household is awaiting test results. Children must not attend school until a negative result is attained or a period of 14 days of isolation has been completed. Your full support with this means that we can continue to maintain the lowest possible risks of transmission and keep our entire school community safe.

This week has also seen the launch of our annual Parents' Survey. You will have been sent an email from no-reply@edurio.com. The survey is run by an independent survey company and you can be in to win a £25 Amazon voucher. We look forward to hearing your views! Please do complete the survey as it is more important now than ever that we get your feedback and look at how else we as a school can continue to support our families.

This week you will receive a letter from the school about our offer of after school club for all pupils. To clarify, these clubs will be run by teachers within their own class bubbles therefore maintaining health and safety arrangements for all. I would encourage you all to support your child to attend their after-school clubs. The clubs constitute a key part of our Education with Character offer that builds pupils' skills and knowledge beyond academia. This is particularly important as it will help with supporting our pupils p
