Its the end of Spring 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

Its the end of Spring 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

Year 5 have had a brilliant half term, through creating and building moving toys using cam mechanisms to researching exciting biographies about different survivors around the world. Everyone has worked really hard and we are very proud of you Y5!

Writing:

In Writing, we have been researching facts about survivors around the world and writing a recount about the famous Ernest Shackleton and his ship the Endeavour which has recently been found by explorers! We have used relative clauses and descriptive language to create atmosphere and tension in our recounts. We have also started to learn about the features of a biography and will be writing our own biographies about a survivor that we have researched.

Geography:

Our topic in Geography this half term has been rivers. We started by looking at the different parts of a river and learning the technical vocabulary for each part. Next, we discussed the different land uses around a river and what are the benefits and dangers of land close to a river.

DT:

This half term, children explored the world of mechanics, figuring out how to assembly a cam mechanism to create their own moving toys. From discussing the different type of cams to using problems solving skills and teamwork to assembly a working cam and troubleshoot when it didn’t work the first time. We also took part in a STEM workshop where we could be independent learner and discover all kinds of things from woodwork to engineering and coding.

Maths:

In Maths we have been learning about fractions. We have covered many topics from adding and subtracting fractions to finding fractions of amount and converting improper fractions into mixed numbers and back again!

After-school Clubs:

The children have really loved being part of the after-school clubs available to them. We have had some very excited children for Craft club, choir, and sport club. Choir have done some spectacular performances in assemblies to the rest of the school and we are looking forward to our trip to Sheffield Utilita Arena in the first week back to perform again. We look forward to seeing all of our student back for more clubs after the holidays.

The Year 5 team have thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 5 this half term and it has been wonderful to see so many children dedicated and excited for their learning and making good progress.

We look forward to welcoming all children back after half term to enjoy another 6 weeks of new learning and experiences.

See you soon,

Year 5 Team.

Dear Parents/Carers

Leadership at High Hazels Academy

We hope that everyone is enjoying the new term. Despite the ongoing challenges of Covid19, we are pleased that pupils are continuing at pace with their learning. After seven years as Headteacher of High Hazels Academy, Mrs Maqsood-Shah will be leaving the school at the end of the academic year. She has been appointed as Regional Director within a Primary Trust. This is not a decision she has taken lightly, and we will be very sorry to see her leave. She has been an excellent Headteacher for the school and, has been very successful in managing the challenges of Covid-19. Her dedication to the school and its community has been superb. I know that everyone in the school will wish her well for the future and thank her for the contribution she has made to the school’s success. She is, of course, fully committed to the school until the summer and is looking forward to a productive six months.

We will now begin a national recruitment exercise to appoint her successor. We hope to attract a strong field of candidates and to have our new Head in place for September. We will, of course, ensure a smooth transition between Mrs Maqsood-Shah and her successor so that there is no disruption to the strong progress underway at the school. Thank you for your continued support of the school during this very important time for catching up on any lost learning due to the Pandemic.

Best wishes

Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

This week the school have celebrated British Science Week. On Wednesday, students visited a number of stations to immerse themselves in experiments, tests and tinkering activities. Some students dressed up, too! It was a fun-filled and educational day

The Date Project

The Date Project

The idea and concept was simple, to raise funds for the Al-Huda Bakery in Syria by selling a box of the finest Medjool dates for £10 during Ramadan. 

Each box sold raised funds for fifty loaves of bread for a Syrian family. The Date Project is a initiative started and run by volunteers with 100% of profits going to charity.

In the first year of the project, 100,000 loaves of bread were distributed, and in 2016 a phenomenal 3.5 million loaves of bread were produced as a result of this initiative. 

For Ramadan 2017, Palestine was added with a beautifully designed box in Palestinian colors being sold as the perfect gift nationwide.

We are supporting The Date Project by selling dates on our school yard next week for £10 per tin. These will be available to buy after school from the PTA members. For more information visit https://thedateproject.org

 

Science Dress Up Day 16th March

Science Dress Up Day 16th March

Dear parents and carers,

Next week we will be celebrating British Science Week. On Wednesday 16th March, we have planned a fun filled day so children can engage in a number of activities that build skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and enquiry. Please follow the Sway page if you would like some ideas on how to continue this learning at home. As part of the excitement, we are asking all children to dress up on Wednesday as something related to science. Again, please continue scrolling for costume ideas you can easily create at home.

If you have any questions, please ask your child’s teacher.
