Eid Parties & Non Uniform Day - Friday 6th May

Dear Parents/Carers

I would like to wish Eid Mubarak to all our families who will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr.

As a whole school, we will be having Eid parties on Friday, 6th May 2022.  As done previously, we are asking parents/carers for a £1 contribution per child to be brought into class.  The money will be used to purchase party food and drink for all the children.

Please note that the 6th May will also be a non-uniform day for all the children.

As always, if your child has any allergies then please ensure their medical records are up to date in the office.

Thank you for your continued support

 

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Principal

Eid Parties & Non Uniform Day -  Friday 6th May

 


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!

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

 


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

What a busy, fun filled half term we have had in nursery! We have been learning all about animals as our theme was ‘On the Farm’. We have made lots of farm animals using a range of different materials including junk modelling, painting, drawing and collaging. In maths we have sorted animals into groups of size, matched animals to picture cards, sang number songs using the props. This helped us practice counting to 5 and taking numbers away.  During this half term we celebrated world book day- twisted fairy tales. We dressed up as characters from different stories, read lots of fairy tale stories and took part in lots of story themed activities. It was also British Science Week, where we talked about what Science is and took part in activities. We particularly enjoyed the paint blowing where we used straws to blow paint across the paper which made lovely marks! We have also been talking about the weather as we started the term in Winter and moved into Spring. The children talked about how they didn’t need their hats and scarves anymore as it was getting warmer. We looked at different signs of Spring and spotted them in the garden, the children could see buds on flowers, daffodils and the sun shining. We also looked at lambs, chicks and even had our own caterpillars! We were so happy to have them to look after and watch them grow into butterflies! As the weather got warmer, we enjoyed exploring in our outdoor area using the water wall to transport water in different containers, made mud pie in the mud kitchen, rode the bikes around the track, went on mini beast hunts, completed the obstacle courses and role played with the small world animals. We have talked about caring for living things and looking after the natural environment. The children have been watering the flowers every day to help them grow. We also planted some seeds in the large planters and talked about how they will grow. Towards the end of the term, we read the story ‘The Little Red Hen’. The children learnt a lesson from the story about helping others and being kind to each other. Throughout this term we have done lots of circle times about being kind to each other, sharing and looking after our nursery. We are so excited for next term where we will have new friends to play with at nursery and start our new learning on fairy-tale stories! Don’t forget to ask us about our learning at home!

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

 


Its week 5 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have been reading our new story ‘The Little Red Hen’. The children have learnt a lesson from the story about helping others and being kind to each other. They have been painting pictures of the little red hen in the creative area and drawing pictures of other characters from the story in the writing area. Now that we have come into spring we have been talking about signs of Spring and spotting these signs outside. We have talked about caring for living things and looking after the natural environment. The children have been watering the flowers everyday to help them grow. It has been a busy week of playing and exploring in the indoor and outdoor environment!  Next week will be our final week learning about farm animals before the Easter holidays

Leadership At High Hazels Academy

Dear Parents/Carers

Leadership at High Hazels Academy

We hope that everyone is enjoying the new term. Despite the ongoing challenges of Covid19, we are pleased that pupils are continuing at pace with their learning. After seven years as Headteacher of High Hazels Academy, Mrs Maqsood-Shah will be leaving the school at the end of the academic year. She has been appointed as Regional Director within a Primary Trust. This is not a decision she has taken lightly, and we will be very sorry to see her leave. She has been an excellent Headteacher for the school and, has been very successful in managing the challenges of Covid-19. Her dedication to the school and its community has been superb. I know that everyone in the school will wish her well for the future and thank her for the contribution she has made to the school’s success. She is, of course, fully committed to the school until the summer and is looking forward to a productive six months.

We will now begin a national recruitment exercise to appoint her successor. We hope to attract a strong field of candidates and to have our new Head in place for September. We will, of course, ensure a smooth transition between Mrs Maqsood-Shah and her successor so that there is no disruption to the strong progress underway at the school. Thank you for your continued support of the school during this very important time for catching up on any lost learning due to the Pandemic.

Best wishes

Sir Jon Coles                                             Darran Ellison-Lee

Chief Executive                                        Director of Primary Education

Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have spent a long time outside exploring the outdoor area. We have been planting some seeds in the large planters and watering all the flowers we have planted. We are so excited to watch them grow! We have also been exploring the water area using the water wall, riding the bikes and playing throwing and catching games with our friends. Inside we have been drawing pictures of animals that live on a farm and decorating these pictures with a range of materials. On Wednesday we celebrated British Science Week, where we talked about what Science is and took part in activities. We particularly enjoyed the paint blowing where we used straws to blow paint across the paper which made lovely marks! We can’t wait for next week where we will start our new story ‘The Little Red Hen’.
