School Closed for Easter Holidays

 


We have finished Spring 2 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

Year 3 have worked incredibly well through the lockdown and have been settling in for the remainder of this very strange term. Thank you to all our families for your continued support.    

Through lockdown, the children have impressed all the year 3 staff with overcoming the challenge of using technology, new experiences, expectations and remote learning. We had a busy day independently engaging with mindfulness, TTRS, Bug Club, and a wider curriculum subject for our morning learning. The children then engaged with the teachers in writing, reading, maths and ended our day with story time.   

In writing, we have been planning and writing narrative and fantasy stories thinking about characters, setting, problem and resolution, ensuring we apply the skills we have been learning, such as expanded noun phrases, speech and including paragraphs. The children have really surprised the teachers with their creative imagination when writing their fantasy stories.   

In reading, we have enjoyed exploring a range of texts around our topic ‘Ancient Egypt’. We have looked at both fiction and non-fiction texts to understand the lives of pharaohs, process of mummification and the River Nile. We have also loved exploring our favourite author Roald Dahl and studied his book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. We used our knowledge of the story and created a comic strip on the computers as part of our computing lessons. The children enjoyed using the internet and Microsoft word.  

One of our texts was looking at a recipe after we learnt the process from bean to bar and we were excited about making cookie mallows adding lots of chocolate chips in our cookies!  

During the lockdown, in maths, we were learning about multiplying and diving 2 and 3 digit by 1 digit. We have also been practising our 3 and 8 timetables – please encourage the children to keep practising these!   

We have also learnt about adding money and working out change, the children have enjoyed buying toys from our pretend shop. This week, we have moved onto learning about length and converting millimetres into centimetres and centimetres into metres.

Its Week 5 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

 

This week has been full of fun-filled activities in Year 3! In Reading, we have been learning about recipes and have been reading Nadiya’s Bake Me a Story. From this book, we baked delicious Cookie Mallows in our classes. They went down a treat! In Writing, we have started our new unit of explanation texts and have started to plan our own. For our Maths, we have started a new unit on measure learning about cm, mm, m and equivalent lengths. In D&T, we have been learning about pneumatic systems and created our very own Moving Monsters! What an exciting week.

Ancient Greece day in school for Y3

Dear Parent / Carer,

As part of our topic for this half term we are learning about Ancient Greece.

On Wednesday 21st April, we have invited the Dan Tastic Education company to visit us with a range of resources and workshops to support our understanding about ancient Greece and their way of life. To help us fund this visit we are asking for a contribution of £5.00.

Please note that the school and Education company have completed a detailed risk assessment to ensure that the visit can be taken place with all the safety measures including social distancing.

In the meantime why not visit their website with your child at

http://www.dantasticeducation.com/ancient-greece/ and discuss different topics covered during the workshop?

Thank you in advance for your support.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

The Year 3 Team.

Its Week 4 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

This week in Year 3, we have been continuing our learning about volcanoes in Geography. We have learnt all about the different parts of the Earth and made flashcards to explain and remember each one. In Computing, we have been practising our skills using Microsoft Word and learning to add text, manipulate text and insert pictures. We have used these skills to create some amazing Comic Strips for the story of Charlie and the Chocolate factory! 

A big well done to all of Year 3 for completing their assessments this week – you have worked so hard and we are so impressed with your dedication to your learning!

Virtual Parents Evening 30th & 31st March

Dear Parents

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to hold face to face parents evening meetings.  We have missed meeting parents, and we want to ensure that until we can meet parents face to face we have a virtual system to discuss pupils progress.

Therefore the school has introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system called school cloud. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments.

School cloud allows parents to have a video consultation with their childs class teacher, and we are confident that parents will find this system simple and easy to use and we welcome any feedback.

We will hold our virtual parent evening meetings on Tuesday 30th March and Wednesday 31st March.  Parents will be sent a letter detailing all the information needed to make appointments, along with parents unique login code.  Nursery parents will be able to speak to Mrs Adlington on Wednesday 31st March

Please click here to access High Hazels Academy School Cloud Account

If you have any questions or queries please contact the main school office on 0114 2442189 or email enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk. 

Many thanks for your continued support
