Its the end of the academic year - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

What a fantastic year we have had in Year 3! Everyone has worked so hard and we have learnt so much through exploring the historical monument of Stonehenge and creating a free-standing replica to writing myths inspired by the Ancient Greeks and investigating how light and shadow works in science.

Writing:

In Writing, we have produced many different forms of writing from fantasy stories and haiku poems, to information texts and exciting newspapers. This half term we looked at a collection of Aesop’s Fables and used this to innovate and create our own versions of the fables, each including a moral at the end. We looked at using direct speech and expanded noun phrases in our writing.

Award Winners 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

It is very important that school and parents work closely together to celebrate children’s achievements, and in doing so, children realise their potential and develop a strong sense of achievement and motivation to succeed. 

Every year the school relishes the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our pupils.  We are delighted to announce that today in the lovely sunshine we held our High Hazels Academy Annual Awards Ceremony, as for the past 2 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to do so.

Well done to all the winners.

Its Week 3 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

This week, Year 3 have been very productive! In Reading, we have been learning all about the Euros 2021 and answering questions about the text. In Writing, we have been identifying features of persuasive writing and taking part in a class debate. In Maths, we learnt to order, add and count fractions and in Geography, we created a table to show the human and physical features of the Amalfi Coast. Year 3 had a special treat for DT as we made delicious Greek Salads with tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, olives and red onions. It went down a treat! We also had a fun-packed Sports day on Wednesday where children took part in races such as long jump, football dribble, balance beam and many more. Well done!

PTA Selling Ice Pops - Thursday 24th June

Dear Parents/carers

Due to the currrent Covid-19 pandemic our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) have been unable to have any events in school for the last 18 months. Our PTA work extremely hard to raise money to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting.

Therefore the PTA will be selling ice pops on Thursday 24th June for 50p each.  Children can bring money into school if they wish to buy one.

Many thanks for your continued support
