Spring 2 Week 4 - Forest of Fairytales

Y5 thoroughly enjoyed world book day, immersing themselves in a forest of fairy tales. They revisited old favourite stories like Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears and also read Hansel and Gretel and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Spring 2 Week 3 - Adaptions in Animals

Year 5 have been learning about adaptions in animals who live in the polar regions for science week. After seeing a cool experiment in assembly, the year 5's conducted their own experiment and then produced their own lovely posters about what they had learned. Well done year 5

Spring 2 Week 2 - Halle Concert

Year 5 went on the HALLE Orchestra on Friday afternoon to listen to classical music and operatic songs. The children were enchanted by what they heard and performed the song we have been learning in class beautifully. A member of the Sheffield Music Hubs even said how fantastically High Hazels Academy had sung the song. All the teachers and adults were so proud of them! A big well done to you all.

We are delighted to announce that Atiya won the best line for the story slam competition which all Year 5’s from across the country took part in. We had excellent entries and six children were selected form High Hazels Academy. The children really enjoyed working with a literacy specialist and have learnt a lot from the workshop.

Spring 1 Blog - Week 6

Year five have been learning all bout staying safe online this week. Today we learned about how digital images can be altered and what we see online may not always be reality. They also were learning how to cite a site today, a skill which focuses on where information comes from and making sure it is correct. Here are some pictures of our children on the computers using the knowledge they have acquired to find and cite pictures with their partners. 

 

As we come to the end of this half term it is time to reflect on what a successful time it has been. Our mornings have been jam-packed with our learning focusing on multiplication and division for maths, with the children showing their usual enthusiasm for the subject. In reading we have been concentrating on Vikings, switching from our fiction text, Viking Boy, to our non-fiction texts about Viking warriors. Therefore, the children have built up wider knowledge which really shows itself when they talk about the subject. 

 

Throughout most of this half term, the children have been writing their own 500 word stories for the national competition of Story Slam. The children showed much eagerness for the project and all wrote really fantastic stories. It was so hard for the year 5 teachers to pick the top six children to go to Manchester for the final. We are so pleased to announce that one of our Y5 stories won! A big well done to all the finalists for representing High Hazels. 

 

Our wider curriculum has been fantastic with some absolutely stunning artwork created in all three classes and the children obviously enjoying all the new skills they are learning. In history we have created lessons which really push our children to think about the subject in an in-depth manner, using historical sources and artifacts to inform our teaching. Music is always relished as a great way for our children to be creative, with them taking inspiration from sounds they may not always be familiar with such as Jazz this term. Additionally, our children have blown us away with their singing in preparation for the HALLE orchestra performance at City Hall on the 6th of March. This will be a great experience for the children and they are all so excited! 

 

Well done team year 5!

World Book Day - 5th March 2020

Dear Families,

 

            On Thursday 5th March 2020 we will be celebrating World Book Day. This is a day where children throughout the world will celebrate their favourite authors and books.

 

To celebrate this day in school we are asking that children dress up as a character from one of their favourite characters from their class books. If children choose to dress up, we are asking that they donate £1, which will then be used to buy new books for their book corners. If a whole class come dress-up then they get 2500 class points.

 

We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most creative costume. Any children who make their own costume will win a house point ball for their house.

 

Here are some websites to help you create a great world book day outfit.

Throughout the day, children will be taking part in activities based on the joy a book brings.  This is a special day where all around the word can share their favourite stories.  Your child may also bring in their favourite story to share with their class this could be as a reading a book, reading their own story or telling a story aloud from their family.

 

If any parents would like to tell a story in their home language to the children, please let your child’s class teacher know.

 

Thank you

Mrs Hodgkins
