End of Term Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers

Please click here to view the end of term newsletter.

It has been a challenging, enjoyable and very productive half term at high Hazels. Reflecting on what we have done and achieved thus far, fills me with pride and humility to be part of such an amazing staff team who all work hard together for the better of all our pupils and to serve our supportive community. We have completed our end of term assessments for all year groups where our pupils have demonstrated the fantastic progress gained in this Autumn term. Well done to all our pupils, their determination and resilience is commendable.

This half term tarted with our annual High Hazels Lantern Parade on the 5th of November, and I am sure you will agree with me that it was a resounding success. For this I am grateful to all the local councillors Mary Lea and Zahida Naz, South Yorkshire police, Darnall Well-Being, Sheffield Park Academy, Local youth clubs and our fantastic PTA. The success of this event is due to the meticulous planning of our school leaders, creativity of our pupils and the support of all the mentioned groups and organisation, without whom this event would not be possible.

As always, our pupils have received a full complement of an exciting curriculum and enrichment offer including theatre visits, inter school sports tournaments, after school clubs, Reception Christmas singalong, swimming offer to Years 3 and 4, end of term parties, Christmas jumper and Children in need fund raising events, just to list a few.

This half term we have been able to restart our face-to-face parental engagement offers cautiously and carefully such as: family learning, toddler group, coffee morning, reading workshops, weekly achievement assemblies, PTA meetings, parent consultation meetings.

How you can help us next term:

  1. We need parent volunteers to support or free breakfast offer for all pupils.  From January all our pupils will receive a free breakfast bagel in the morning as part of our commitment to ensure all pupils have a great start to their learning day with a healthy breakfast. To this end I am reaching out to all of our parents to ask for parent volunteers to support us in the mornings in preparing this breakfast. You can volunteer for 1 hour for any day in the week. If you or anyone in your family has the capacity to support us with this than please speak to your child’s class teacher.
  2. We need a parent working group to consider our Relationships Health and Sex Education curriculum consultation. If you are a parent and would like to be part of this working party, then please contact the school office, and let us know. The group will begin their work/consultation with myself in January week beginning 10th of January. I am hoping to be able to go out to full parent body consultation by the end of January in order to complete the consultations by February half term. This will then allow the RHSE policy to be ratified and in place from March 2022.

Finally I would like to thank all our pupils, staff, governors and parents for their continued support and efforts.

Wishing all our school communities a Happy New Year and a very merry festive season.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Maqsood-Shah

Principal

New Spring Enrichment Clubs for Y6

 


Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y6…………………….

Year 6 have enjoyed a successful term at school, full of learning, confidence, and ambition. We are proud of the way the children have continued to follow the school expectations, fulfil their roles and responsibilities as students and challenge their own learning.

We have continued to do lots of learning across different subjects. In geography, we have explored the environment and world in which we live, looking at how to live a more sustainable, eco- friendly life. We have learnt about the dangers of plastic pollution to both ourselves and our planet and have learnt ways to make a change for example reducing, recycling and reusing plastic. Hopefully, our geography learning has motivated us to share our knowledge and make a change in our own environments which we live.  In writing, we too have explored the idea of improving our environments and we have enjoyed researching and being enthused by key figures campaigners of this movement for example Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough. Based on their campaign videos, we worked on our own persuasive speeches designed to persuade our audience to make a change in their own life relating to an environmental issue that we were interested. Some children wrote persuasive speeches on deforestation, plastic pollution and climate change.

In particular, the children have thoroughly enjoyed our unit on electricity in science. Pupils have explored components of a circuit and have investigated ways in which circuits could be changed in order to change the output of the components. In this investigation, pupils discovered that the more voltage a circuit has the brighter the lamp shone or the louder the buzzer was. In addition, they discovered that the length of wire makes no difference to the output of the component.

Change of PE day for Y6

 


Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

What a busy, fun filled term full of learning we have had in nursery! We started the term off learning about nocturnal animals and had a visit from the Wise Owl Falconry Rescue centre. During this visit we got to watch a barn owl fly across the hall, eat and even got to hold an owl for a photograph!

We have also learnt about how different winter festivals are celebrated. We have learnt all about bonfire night, Diwali, Halloween, and Christmas. We talked about safety around fireworks, made biscuits and firework pictures. For Diwali, we talked about who and how people celebrate it in the community as well at home and made firework biscuits to take home. For Christmas we made cards, calendars, read lots of Christmas stories and decorated a real Christmas tree!

As well as all these celebrations we also continued to explore all areas of nursery with our friends, learning to share and talk about our feelings. As we did this, we developed our confidence in new social situations and started to think about how others may feel. We also enjoyed playing and learning in our outdoor area climbing on the climbing frame, riding the bikes, collecting autumn leaves, and playing games with each other. We are so excited for next term where we will continue to learn and play with our friends! Remember to ask us all about our learning!

Its week 6 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have been learning all about Christmas! We have spent timing talking about who and how people celebrate Christmas. We had an exciting delivery of a real Christmas tree! The children have enjoyed helping to decorate it and even made their own decorations! On the maths table the children have been ordering presents by size, on the writing table they have been writing letters to Santa and drawing pictures of toys they would like. We have also been learning lots of Christmas songs including ‘Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer’ and we have even learnt the Makaton actions to the song! We can't wait for next week when we will have our Christmas party!

Its week 6 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….
