Platinum Jubilee Celebration Day - Wednesday 8th June

Dear Parents/Carers

On Wednesday 8th 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

 

Platinum Jubilee Celebration Day - Wednesday 8th June

 


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

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

This week we have welcomed new friends into nursery and helped them settle in by showing them all our toys and playing with them. We have continued to read ‘The three little pigs’ story and sequence the story using props. We have also been making pig masks in the creative area, collaging, and drawing other characters from the story. The children have enjoyed playing and learning in our outdoor area going on mini beast hunts, cooking in the mud kitchen, playing ball games and riding our brand new bikes and scooters! We can’t wait for next week where we will start our new story ‘Little Red Riding hood’.

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

It has been lovely to welcome everyone back to school after the Easter holidays. The children have enjoyed seeing their friends and telling everyone what they have done in the holiday. We have started our new theme ‘Once Upon a Time’ where we will be learning about fairy-tale stories. This week have started to read ‘The three little pigs’, the children have enjoyed listening to the story and sequencing the events that happen. They have built their own houses using bricks, sticks and straw! The children have then acted out the story with props, pretending the blow the houses down like the big bad wolf! It has been a busy week, we are excited for next week where we will welcome some new friends into nursery!
