We have finished Autumn 1 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

In year 3, we have made a fantastic start to the year. We have adapted well to the new school rules and routines and talked lots about keeping ourselves and our friends safe.

 

Through our topic, ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age’ we have done lots of fun and exciting learning across different subjects. In History, we have enjoyed learning about Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We explored the artefacts used in these eras and talked in depth about the lifestyle of these people including where they lives, the food they hunted and gathered and their way of life.

In writing, we have produced stories from the Iron Age and published these for our friends in year 2. The children have planned their stories thinking about the setting, problem and solution including expanded non phrases and various sentence starters within their sentences. We have enjoyed two stories called The Stone Age boy and The Pebble in my pocket.   

In reading, we have enjoyed looking at poems, diary extracts and non-fiction texts where we have identified and clarified new vocabulary, inferred from the text and generated ideas for acting out the script including drawing story maps to support this. The children have also enjoyed being the character and hot seating.

In Art, we learnt about Edith Holden who was a British artist in the late 1800 and mainly painted pictures of plants and animals. The children learnt to draw lines and flowers including shading.

In computing, we have talked about ways to stay safe when using the internet in our e-safety lessons. We looked at different scenarios and discussed who we need to speak to if we feel unsafe or are being contacted by strangers online.

In Science, we have completed a unit of work all about rocks. We have learnt about how rocks are useful and how they are formed. We have investigated, using our scientific skills, to find out about the permeability of different soil types.

The Year 3 team have thoroughly enjoyed teaching year 3 this half term and getting to know their new classes. It has been a successful start to the year, and we are all impressed with the year group’s enthusiasm for learning and determination to do their best.

We look forward to welcoming all children back after half term to enjoy another 7 weeks of new learning and experiences.

See you soon,

Year 3 Team.

Dear Parents/Carers

As I write to you on the final day of this half term, I am filled with gratitude and pride for all our staff and pupils. They have worked so hard this term to get back on track with all learning. Our staff have created bespoke catch-up plans to ensure that no child is left behind because of the pandemic. I will be sending you more information after half term about these plans, including our continuity of learning.

All our pupils have settled into school really well and have impressed all of us with their confidence and ability to manage their learning with all the current restrictions. I have already noticed brilliant progress in children’s books. This is a credit to our pupils’ exceptional learning behaviours and determination to do well at school. We look forward to sharing your child/ren’s progress next half term.

I would like to thank all our parents/carers for their continued support, and timely communication that has been invaluable to us in the safe running of the school. Here at High Hazels Academy, we are all looking forward to the start of another amazing term, full of learning achievements, joy and progress.

Have a restful half term break.

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Headteacher

We have finished Autumn 1 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

In Year 5, we have made a wonderful new start to the year despite all the new changes in school and their usual routines. The children returned to school excited and enthusiastic to learn. Our topic this term is ‘Anglo-Saxons’ where we have created exciting and inspired learning across all subjects.

In history, we have delved into the world of the Anglo-Saxons and researched how they came to Britain, used archaeological knowledge to look at how they lived, what their religion they followed, as well as how and why they converted to Christianity. The children found looking at the Anglo-Saxon gods particularly interesting and created their own fact-file of their chosen god. The children have thoroughly enjoyed looking at how different our lives compare to theirs.

In reading and writing, we have been looking at the legend of ‘King Arthur and his Knights of the round table’. The children loved listening to this story and hearing how Arthur became the first true king of England. We explored the text by looking at its vocabulary, retrieving information about the character and using drama to really deepen their knowledge and understanding of the story. The children then had the opportunity to create their own innovated version of the legend, creating their own characters and villains to follow in similar footsteps to Arthur’s legend. In our stories, we have looked to include speech, fronted adverbial phrases and using consistent tense. Next half term in writing, the children will have the opportunity to write their own discussion about whether the legend of King Arthur true or not.

In P4C and computing the children have been focussing on how to keep safe online. We have made posters and discovered ways to do safe and efficient searches. In art we have been looking at the artist Stephen Wiltshire and how he became the famous artist he is today. He specialises in drawing and sketching city scapes using 3D shapes, so the children have practised sketching techniques and drawing various 3D shapes. After half term, they will begin to recreate one of Stephen’s famous drawings.

The Y5 team are looking forward to welcoming the children back after a well-rested half term ready to carry on with more exciting and inspiring learning that the children have presented this half term.
