Thank you to all our musicians who performed in our first musical assembly of the year this morning. We had 17 performers playing a range of instruments. Their composure and confidence was amazing, especially with many of them having only been playing for a short period of time and in their first public appearance. I also enjoyed listening to our junior choir for the first time this year which included the new choir members. I can’t wait to see you perform later in the year and see what progress you have made. Thank you to Miss Macklam for arranging this assembly.
Thank you Year 4 for your excellent assembly on Children in Need this morning. This is a very important charity which the school supports each year and it was very important and interesting for the school to hear about the history of the charity including Pudsey Bear and who the money supports. I enjoyed Year 4’s version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” and I really enjoyed listening to their song, “Wake Me Up”: the Children In Need song for this year. A big thank you to Mr Drake for organising his first assembly at Highfield.
Year Three have been conducting experiments, in class and at home, to see which objects and materials create a shadow. They tested leather, tiles, bubble wrap, cardboard, glass and many other items and they also looked at what happens when the light source moves closer or further away from the object. At the end of the lesson, Year Three knew what the words ‘opaque’, ‘transparent’ and ‘translucent’ meant. 3M and 3D have also made some shadow puppets. We can't wait to see them! Super work, Year 3! ... See moreSee less

This is what today has looked like across our homes and school! Well done, everyone! ... See moreSee less
