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.

HIGH HAZELS LANTERN PARADE LIGHTS UP DARNALL

HIGH HAZELS LANTERN PARADE LIGHTS UP DARNALL

The streets of Darnall were alive with music, dance and light taken when High Hazels Academy staged the return of their annual lantern parade last week.

Held on Friday 5th November, the colourful event was also supported by Sheffield Park Academy, and provided the perfect opportunity for the youngsters to showcase their handiwork, parading their wonderful lanterns down Staniforth Road and up the main road.

Music for the event came care of Darnall Community Gospel Choir, and High Hazels youngest also sang, whilst the moves were provided by Sheffield Park's students with a contemporary dance routine.  The crowds were also entertained by stilt walkers and fire throwers from Innovation Entertainments, which ended the parade in style.

Commenting on the parade, High Hazels Academy’s Principal Mrs Asma Maqsood-Shah said:

“It’s a fantastic event and one which helps to bring the whole community together. The children also love having the opportunity to show off the wonderful lanterns they have made.”

 Dunya news also attended the parade, the full interview can be found by clicking here
