Returning to School September 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

We have a page created on our school website, dedicated with returning to school information for 2nd September 2021.

Please can parents/carers take time to read all the letters/information, as well as viewing the transition videos with your child to prepare them for returning back to school on Thursday 2nd September

Parents can access the returning to school page by clicking here

Thank you again for your continued support and partnership. Everyone at the academy is looking forward to welcoming our pupils back. We are entirely focused on making sure that in every lesson, every day, every pupil continues to learn and thrive.

Returning to School September 2021

 


Its the end of the year - Lets see what's been happening in Y2..............

The Year 2 team are really pleased with the fantastic effort from all children during the whole of this academic year. We are proud of the progress children have made under exceptional circumstances.

Through our topic ‘Rivers’, we have done lots of learning across different subjects. We have learnt about rivers and the features of rivers. We have looked at pollution in water and the effects that it has on the wildlife living there.

In English, we have been using the text The Last Wolf. This is based on Little Red Riding Hood but has some differences. We have explored the language used and used the beautiful pictures to describe the characters in the story. The children then created their own version of the story using animals that are endangered. We used the book in reading to develop our comprehension.

In phonics, we have been learning all our Set 2 and 3 sounds. We have been finding our sounds in words and practising reading our words quickly without sounding them out.

In Maths, we have finished learning about fractions. We know ½, ¼ and 1/3. We can find a fraction of a shape and amount. We have started to learn to tell the time.

In Art, we have been continuing looking at the artist Georges Seurat and the techniques that he uses to create his paintings. We investigated colour mixing and how to create pictures using dots. We have evaluated our own paintings and said how we could improve them.

In science, we have been continuing investigating materials and looking at why materials are suitable for certain jobs. We have looked at the properties of materials and how they change shape. We have looked at the materials that are used in and around school. We have looked at how a human grows up.

Our favourite author is Jeremy Strong, so we are enjoying reading some of his books during Storytime. They are funny and make us laugh. We have been looking at the language that he uses. We have also been reading some of our 10 to read before you leave books.

Year 2 have taken part in the UL singing project, where our song was about endangered species. We sang about tigers.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching year 2 this year

Well done Year 2 and good luck in Year 3.

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.

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
