Y6 End of Year Celebration

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are fast approaching the end of the academic year and your child’s journey through primary school.  Despite the current circumstances, we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate this milestone with all Year 6 pupils.  Therefore, we would like to invite your Y6 child to attend our ‘End of Year Celebration.’

This celebration will take place on Thursday 16th July at 12:00pm – 1:30pm. 

In line with the current government guidelines, we will host this celebration outside on the field.  During this time, the children will have the chance to sign their leavers’ books, socialise with their friends, play games and eat their lunch together.  We will maintain social distancing measures at all times, and your child will be placed in a bubble with no more than 15 pupils. 

Please can your child arrive at the main junior gate at 12:00pm with a packed lunch

Please use the markers on the path outside and wait for a teacher to direct your child onto the playground.

Please collect your child from the main junior gate at 1:30pm, or let us know if they will walk home alone.  If your child has been attending school, they will finish at their normal time (either 1:45pm for Miss Field’s bubble or 2pm for Miss Scrimgeour’s bubble).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact school and ask to speak to one of the Year 6 teachers.

We would love to see your child there to celebrate their achievements at High Hazels Academy.

 

Thank you,

Y6 Team

Summer 2 Week 4 - Worries

In Year Six, we have been talking about worries and how they make our body feel. We drew and labelled 'worry avatars' to show what happens to our body when we feel anxious and then made them out of salt dough. Also, we discussed strategies we can use to help us when we feel worried, for example sharing our worries with someone we trust. Here are some pictures of the clay pinch pots we are making. If we have a worry, we are going to write it down and put it in our pots to share with our teacher.  We have also enjoyed creating games and activities that we can do outside, at a social distance, in our bubbles: circuit training, races, hide and seek, 'football golf', and many more!

Y6 Victorian Day 25th March

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Year six will be having a Victorian workshop day in school on Wednesday 25th March. The day will focus on looking at what life was like during the Victorian era. The day is set to be thrilling, with the children getting to experience what life was like for the Victorian children, what games they would have played and do an archeological dig. This day will be hosted in school by some special Victorian visitors. For the children to get the best out of the day we would like them to come dressed like a Victorian - to give the children the experience it will cost £4.

Please ensure that your child’s allergies and other medical requirements are up to date with the school office.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Spring 2 Week 2 - World Book Day

World Book Day was the highlight of our week! We loved exploring and creating our own graphic novels, creating a piece of artwork in the style of ‘The Child of Books’ and sharing a story with our Y3 pupils. All this, whilst fantastically dressed as our favourite book characters - such a wonderful day!

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
