Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 9th November

Dear Parents/Carers

Our first week back after half term has started with an announcement from the government of a second countrywide lockdown from Thursday 5th November. The main difference for educational institutions in this second lockdown is that all schools will remain open for all pupils. I, therefore, ask that you continue to send your child/ren to school unless s/he has to isolate or has another illness that prevents them from attending school. At High Hazels Academy, we continue to go above and beyond to ensure that our building remains as safe as possible, that our offer of a high of quality educational provision is maintained and that our pupils' and staff's health and well-being remains at the heart of all that we do. We have maintained high levels of cleaning, employed additional daytime cleaning staff, and implemented a whole range of preventative measures. I am proud to say that our staff and pupils have responded positively to many changes. This has been possible due to your support, for which I am grateful.

However, I would once again want to urge all parents to observe social distancing rules and wear a face mask during drop off and collection times for the safety of all. I am also asking for further cooperation in ensuring that if your child or anyone in your household has any Covid-19 symptoms (high temperature, persistent cough, and/or loss of sense of smell/taste) then please DO NOT send your child to school. This also includes if anyone in your household is awaiting test results. Children must not attend school until a negative result is attained or a period of 14 days of isolation has been completed. Your full support with this means that we can continue to maintain the lowest possible risks of transmission and keep our entire school community safe.

This week has also seen the launch of our annual Parents' Survey. You will have been sent an email from no-reply@edurio.com. The survey is run by an independent survey company and you can be in to win a £25 Amazon voucher. We look forward to hearing your views! Please do complete the survey as it is more important now than ever that we get your feedback and look at how else we as a school can continue to support our families.

This week you will receive a letter from the school about our offer of after school club for all pupils. To clarify, these clubs will be run by teachers within their own class bubbles therefore maintaining health and safety arrangements for all. I would encourage you all to support your child to attend their after-school clubs. The clubs constitute a key part of our Education with Character offer that builds pupils' skills and knowledge beyond academia. This is particularly important as it will help with supporting our pupils p

Dear Parents/Carers

As I write to you on the final day of this half term, I am filled with gratitude and pride for all our staff and pupils. They have worked so hard this term to get back on track with all learning. Our staff have created bespoke catch-up plans to ensure that no child is left behind because of the pandemic. I will be sending you more information after half term about these plans, including our continuity of learning.

All our pupils have settled into school really well and have impressed all of us with their confidence and ability to manage their learning with all the current restrictions. I have already noticed brilliant progress in children’s books. This is a credit to our pupils’ exceptional learning behaviours and determination to do well at school. We look forward to sharing your child/ren’s progress next half term.

I would like to thank all our parents/carers for their continued support, and timely communication that has been invaluable to us in the safe running of the school. Here at High Hazels Academy, we are all looking forward to the start of another amazing term, full of learning achievements, joy and progress.

Have a restful half term break.

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Headteacher

We have finished Autumn 1 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

In Year 5, we have made a wonderful new start to the year despite all the new changes in school and their usual routines. The children returned to school excited and enthusiastic to learn. Our topic this term is ‘Anglo-Saxons’ where we have created exciting and inspired learning across all subjects.

In history, we have delved into the world of the Anglo-Saxons and researched how they came to Britain, used archaeological knowledge to look at how they lived, what their religion they followed, as well as how and why they converted to Christianity. The children found looking at the Anglo-Saxon gods particularly interesting and created their own fact-file of their chosen god. The children have thoroughly enjoyed looking at how different our lives compare to theirs.

In reading and writing, we have been looking at the legend of ‘King Arthur and his Knights of the round table’. The children loved listening to this story and hearing how Arthur became the first true king of England. We explored the text by looking at its vocabulary, retrieving information about the character and using drama to really deepen their knowledge and understanding of the story. The children then had the opportunity to create their own innovated version of the legend, creating their own characters and villains to follow in similar footsteps to Arthur’s legend. In our stories, we have looked to include speech, fronted adverbial phrases and using consistent tense. Next half term in writing, the children will have the opportunity to write their own discussion about whether the legend of King Arthur true or not.

In P4C and computing the children have been focussing on how to keep safe online. We have made posters and discovered ways to do safe and efficient searches. In art we have been looking at the artist Stephen Wiltshire and how he became the famous artist he is today. He specialises in drawing and sketching city scapes using 3D shapes, so the children have practised sketching techniques and drawing various 3D shapes. After half term, they will begin to recreate one of Stephen’s famous drawings.

The Y5 team are looking forward to welcoming the children back after a well-rested half term ready to carry on with more exciting and inspiring learning that the children have presented this half term.
