Year 6 Blog

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

It has been lovely to welcome the children back after a well-deserved Christmas break. Year 6 have returned with determination, ambition, confidence and motivation and have dived straight back into their learning and into their SATS preparation. We are proud of the way the children have ‘stepped up’ and are showing their hard work in their lessons and with the extra revision that they have done over Christmas and have continued to do throughout the first half of the spring term. Keep it up Year 6!

Across school children have been having a ‘bagel and a book’ in a morning as well as having class, family time in the morning where children get to talk and get to know each other more. In year 6, this has been a nice part of the day where children have found time to relax and refocus. In addition to family time, school has resumed our celebration assemblies. This is a highlight of the week and two children from each class receive a value or a pride award. Every week, the choice (to choose just two children) is difficult as there is so much talent, hard work and ambition in the class. We would like to thank parents and carers. for your support, as for those who are chosen, it is nice to celebrate their success and for you to attend the assembly too.

A highlight for all of the year 6 teachers is playtimes, where we often (the teachers) get involved with the children's games. This term, we have played basketball, football and even some rugby at lunchtime on the yard. The children display some great teamwork skills and sportsmanship, and it is a pleasure to join in (or play against them) at one of their favourite parts of the day.

High Hazels Academy PTA made an amazing gesture in December and sponsored a snowflake at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Over the past seven years, the award-winning snowflake display has raised over £1m for Sheffield Children’s Hospital!

In return for pledging to raise funds, the PTA sees their snowflake sparkle on the Sheffield Children’s Hospital building, with an attached name tag recognising the contribution for all to see.

The initiative brings people together with a shared goal to build a better future for the staff, patients, and their families at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

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.
