Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

We love to problem solve in Y4. We have been using our knowledge of factor pairs to explore the following problem:

 

Mr Sexton has 36 children in his PE class. He wants to put them in equal groups, how many children could he have in each group?

 

To help use solve this problem, we worked systematically and used counters to help us investigate.

PTA Sponsor Snowflake Appeal at Sheffield Children's Hospital

High Hazels Academy PTA made an amazing gesture in December and sponsored a snowflake at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Over the past seven years, the award-winning snowflake display has raised over £1m for Sheffield Children’s Hospital!

In return for pledging to raise funds, the PTA sees their snowflake sparkle on the Sheffield Children’s Hospital building, with an attached name tag recognising the contribution for all to see.

The initiative brings people together with a shared goal to build a better future for the staff, patients, and their families at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

This is a great app to help your child develop their maths skills. It is free to use and helps children practise addition and subtraction. It is aimed at children aged 4 - 7, but could be beneficial to KS2 children too. A few minutes on this app each day will help your child to progress in maths.

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

Y4 have been making the most of the clubs on offer this half term. In science club we have been learning about famous engineers and developing our problem solving and team working skills. Last week we were challenged to make a bridge that could support three cartons of beans. Happily, everyone succeeded - just! This week we have tried to create tall structures inspired by the Eiffel Tower. We had so much fun and learnt a lot from the structures that worked well as well as the structures that didn't work well. It's not too late to sign up to a club. There are still spaces available in Monday's computing and karate club and Thursday's sports and science club.

End of Term Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers

Please click here to view the end of term newsletter.

It has been a challenging, enjoyable and very productive half term at high Hazels. Reflecting on what we have done and achieved thus far, fills me with pride and humility to be part of such an amazing staff team who all work hard together for the better of all our pupils and to serve our supportive community. We have completed our end of term assessments for all year groups where our pupils have demonstrated the fantastic progress gained in this Autumn term. Well done to all our pupils, their determination and resilience is commendable.

This half term tarted with our annual High Hazels Lantern Parade on the 5th of November, and I am sure you will agree with me that it was a resounding success. For this I am grateful to all the local councillors Mary Lea and Zahida Naz, South Yorkshire police, Darnall Well-Being, Sheffield Park Academy, Local youth clubs and our fantastic PTA. The success of this event is due to the meticulous planning of our school leaders, creativity of our pupils and the support of all the mentioned groups and organisation, without whom this event would not be possible.

As always, our pupils have received a full complement of an exciting curriculum and enrichment offer including theatre visits, inter school sports tournaments, after school clubs, Reception Christmas singalong, swimming offer to Years 3 and 4, end of term parties, Christmas jumper and Children in need fund raising events, just to list a few.

This half term we have been able to restart our face-to-face parental engagement offers cautiously and carefully such as: family learning, toddler group, coffee morning, reading workshops, weekly achievement assemblies, PTA meetings, parent consultation meetings.

How you can help us next term:

  1. We need parent volunteers to support or free breakfast offer for all pupils.  From January all our pupils will receive a free breakfast bagel in the morning as part of our commitment to ensure all pupils have a great start to their learning day with a healthy breakfast. To this end I am reaching out to all of our parents to ask for parent volunteers to support us in the mornings in preparing this breakfast. You can volunteer for 1 hour for any day in the week. If you or anyone in your family has the capacity to support us with this than please speak to your child’s class teacher.
  2. We need a parent working group to consider our Relationships Health and Sex Education curriculum consultation. If you are a parent and would like to be part of this working party, then please contact the school office, and let us know. The group will begin their work/consultation with myself in January week beginning 10th of January. I am hoping to be able to go out to full parent body consultation by the end of January in order to complete the consultations by February half term. This will then allow the RHSE policy to be ratified and in place from March 2022.

Finally I would like to thank all our pupils, staff, governors and parents for their continued support and efforts.

Wishing all our school communities a Happy New Year and a very merry festive season.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Principal
