Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Y4..............

We have had so much fun in our times table club! We know times tables are a really important part of maths, so we are finding fun ways to practise and memorise them. We started by playing on Times Table Rockstars. Then, we looked for patterns in our times tables to help us remember them more easily. Finally, we started to make flash cards so we can play lots of different games with them. We hope to see more children joining Miss Swain on a Monday and Miss Scrimgeour on a Tuesday.

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Y4..............

 

Y4 are really enjoying our new computing unit in which we are learning how to write code. This lesson, we wrote the code for drawing a square, challenging ourselves by including the repeat function to make our instructions simpler. Next lesson, we will create a repeating geometric pattern by adding to our code.

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

This week we have been looking at the story of Hansel and Gretel and using expanded noun phrases to make our writing descriptive and exciting to read. In reading, we discussed how the different characters of the story are feeling at different times and using evidence to support our answers. In maths, we have been using place value to add 2 digit and 3 digit numbers. We have been really interested in developing our research skills in history and DT finding facts about Stonehenge. And in science we have started to learn about light and how some surfaces reflect light.

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

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Y2..............

This week we have been finding out about school in the past. We found out about how children were taught and the punishments that were used. We decided that we prefer going to school today as the punishments sounded very tough. We compared school today and in the past, using a Venn diagram. 

 

We have also changed the ending to the story Wild. We decided that she would go to school but she found that they did everything wrong there. We have enjoyed the story wild and look forward to our new story.

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Nursery..............

This week in nursery we have been learning about bonfire night. We have been talking about what we will see and hear on bonfire night and we have been making firework pictures and rockets using lots of different materials. We really enjoyed watching videos of real fireworks on the interactive whiteboard and listening to the noises that they make!

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Y6..............

In reading this week, we have consolidated our learning about adaptation in science by looking at an information text about Arctic animals. We have used our retrieval skills to record key facts about how these animals have adapted, and we have compared each animal, looking at their similarities and differences.
