Coffee Mornings Every Thursday


Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Nursery…………………….

We have had a fantastic term in nursery! We have read lots of traditional tales as our theme was ‘Once Upon A time’. We started the term off reading ‘The three little pigs’. The children enjoyed listening to the story and sequencing the events, building houses using bricks, sticks and straw! On the second week back we welcomed new friends into nursery and helped them settle in by showing them all our toys and playing with them.

We enjoyed the beautiful weather and spent lots of time playing and learning in our outdoor area. The children went on mini beast hunts, cooked in the mud kitchen, played ball games and enjoyed riding our brand new bikes and scooters! In phonics we started learning new sounds with the help of Fred the Frog! The children impressed the teachers with how they have remembered all of the sounds! They completed their phonics homework and brought it back to school to show us! This will really help the children that are moving into reception in September! We continued with our traditional tales stories and read the gingerbread man story.  The children used their creative skills to mix paint and paint pictures of the gingerbread man showing different emotions. We even made our own gingerbread men and took them home to eat! It has been a busy, fun filled half term! We can’t wait for next term when we will celebrate the Queens Jubilee and start our new theme ‘All creatures great and small!’.

Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Nursery…………………….


Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y6…………………….

Year 6 have had a super half term and have absolutely smashed their SATs papers. They have all worked incredibly hard, showing perseverance, dedication and resilience. Not only this but they have conducted themselves with a positive attitude and maximum effort. We are all extremely proud.

This term has also been extremely busy creating some excellent pieces of writing to showcase their writing skills. They have written twisted fairytales; Little Red Riding wolf and Goldilocks’ revenge are just a few fantastic takes the children had on classic fairy tales. In addition, they have created non-chronological reports on the human body and Dairy entries from the perspective of refugees.

Year 6 took part in a fantastic fun run, where some children ran as far as 5km - great effort! In geography, they have been exploring migration, learning about lots of different case studies and learning new terminology about asylum seekers, voluntary and involuntary migration. In PE, year 6 have been developing their cricket and basketball skills and have participated in inter-class competitions.

They look extremely smart in the full school uniforms, and it is nice to see a positive attitude towards their learning since the disruptions of covid. We are looking forward to the last 6 weeks of year 6 with lots of amazing opportunities for our children. We have prom, residential and the school play coming up to celebrate their success and time at High Hazels.

We wish you all a great, restful half term and look forward to coming back for the last half term.

See you soon,

Year 6 team.

Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y6…………………….

Platinum Jubilee Celebration Day - Wednesday 8th June

Dear Parents/Carers

On Wednesday 8th June 2022 we will be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. This is our day to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 70th anniversary of taking the throne.

To celebrate this day in school we are asking that children dress up as a King or Queen. We would really like children to make their own costumes and we will be looking for the most creative costume.

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



Throughout the day, children will be taking part in activities celebrating our Queen such as a tea party, creating their own crowns and a corgi treasure hunt. We hope the children enjoy this day and come together to celebrate this special occasion.

Thank you for your continued support

Year 6 Fun Run

Dear Parents/Carers

We are delighted to let you know that Year 6 will be taking part in a Fun Run at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. This is sure to be a wonderful morning for all and is a fantastic opportunity for your child to learn new skills, challenge themselves and have fun with their friends.

The Fun Run event will take place on Thursday 19th May 2022. The children will be participating in a run around the Olympic Legacy Park, competing against other schools.

This event will be run by qualified instructors (from Sport Links Sheffield) and High Hazels staff will be there to support throughout the morning.

Please ensure that your child wears an appropriate PE kit and trainers for this session.  

There is no cost for this trip. We shall leave school after the register and walk to the event. We will return by lunchtime so your child can have their packed lunch or school dinner as normal.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher or Mr. Sexton.

Thank you for your continued support,


Mr. Sexton

Update on Leadership at High Hazels Academy

Dear Parents,

Update on Leadership at High Hazels Academy

We wanted to update you on progress with appointing a successor to Mrs Maqsood-Shah as Principal of the academy.

The recruitment process is, unfortunately, taking longer than we had hoped as we are very keen to choose a candidate with the appropriate mix of skills and experience to suit the school and its community.

Whilst we continue with the process, Mr Paul Graham, who is Principal of our Abbey Hey Primary Academy in Gorton, Manchester and knows High Hazels well, will be working with the Senior Leadership Team to support the successful running of the school. Mr Graham is a highly experienced headteacher and is looking forward to spending time at High Hazels. He will be liaising with Mrs Maqsood-Shah and the Vice Principals this term so that he is fully involved with the planning for the next academic year.  

We will update you on the recruitment process for a permanent Principal when a successful appointment is made.


Yours sincerely


Tanya Hughes

Primary Regional Director, United Learning
