This Week’s WorkReach for the stars!
Reception have been learning about the UK this week. A group of children walked into Ramsbottom and bought ingredients to make a corned beef hash. They peeled potatoes, cut them up and made a fabulous meal! 
Year 1 created ‘Wanted’ posters for a missing dragon! They thought carefully about adjectives, conjunctions and questions.
In Year 2, Isabelle’s group worked well as a team in their science work to find out information and create their habitat to encourage insects into our potato patch.
Year 3 had a wonderful time making heathy sandwiches when Warburtons came to visit and Bonnie wrote a fantastic description using personification.
In Year 4, Grace wrote a lovely recount of her favourite holiday and Eloise wrote a great recount in the form of a postcard.
In Year 5, Luke produced a very smart card for a male role model and Reuben worked confidently to ‘round’ decimals
Year 6 have written to recounts of their trips to Robinwood. They have lots of happy memories to share!

There is lots more work to enjoy on the Children’s Work Page.
 

The Sky’s the LimitAirport Trip
Our Reception class had a great time then they went to visit Manchester Airport as part of their geography work. They learned lots of new facts about planes and even got to sit in the cockpit!
Who knows, maybe one day one of them will be a real pilot and take us all on holiday!

Action stations - It’s Robinwood time!
Year 6 had a fantastic time at the Robinwood Activity Centre at Dobroyd Castle. They pushed themselves to their limits as they fearlessly tackled every challenge. Here is some of the action from each of the three groups - Volcano, Dune and Lava.

Science Boffins at Hazlehurst SchoolScience Day Rocket
We had a fascinating experience on our recent Science Day, when a real live scientist came to school to show us how much fun you can have with science! We learned about chemical reactions, the digestive system, electricity, food chains and lots more. We even learned a special dance which ‘Boffin Joel’ uses when he is mixing chemicals together - he said he preferred dancing to stirring with a spoon! The day ended with a spectacular rocket launch on the school field. It was great!
Thanks to the Friends Association for funding our Science Day.

Hazlehurst’s Top Brass Visit No1 SpinningfieldsTop Brass
The sky was the limit when 11 of our finest brass players took their music to the top floor of Manchester’s newest skyscraper - No1 Spinningfields. The children provided entertainment at the official Topping Out Ceremony, to celebrate the completion of the outer shell of the building.
The performance culminated with a new song, ‘Spinningfields Skyscraper’,  which had been written in collaboration with other local schools and musicians from Manchester Camerata.
Our children performed brilliantly - well done!

‘Actions Have Consequences’ DayEmergency Call
Thanks to the community team from Greater Manchester Police and Prison Service for giving our children such an interesting, entertaining and informative day.
They learned about staying safe, being good citizens, looking after each other, and very importantly, they learned not to mess with the police dog! It was a very memorable visit.

Reception Dinosaur TopicSmile-asaurus
Our reception children have been learning about dinosaurs with a little help from some friends from Bolton Museum. They sang songs, listened to stories, solved puzzles and got to grips with some great big bones and teeth. Then they drew some dinosaurs of their own. It was a roaring success!

Whoops-a-Daisy Angel comes to HazlehurstWhoops-a-Daisy Angel
Thanks to all our Key Stage 1 children for putting on a super performance of ‘Whoops-a-Daisy Angel’ - a charming Nativity play telling the story of the clumsiest angel in heaven, who ends up with the most important job of all - to tell the world about the birth of Jesus. The singing and acting was wonderful and the audience loved every minute of the performance. Thanks to the staff for all their hard work!

‘Away In A Manger’ - Reception Nativity PlayMary and Joseph
Well done to all our Reception children for a wonderful performance of this year’s Nativity play. Morris the mule had a busy time when lots of visitors kept interrupting his nap in the stable. But he didn’t mind because the final visitors were Mary and Joseph and he got to meet baby Jesus.
The audience loved the performance. Thanks to all the staff for preparing the children so well.

‘Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!’A letter for Santa!
The Year 5 & 6 Christmas Concert was a great success! The show told the story of how Santa and his (very modern) elves set out to teach some children the true meaning of Christmas.
The acting and singing was wonderful and the Christmas message of peace and generosity was very powerful.
Thank you to the staff for their brilliant work and to the children for all their enthusiasm!

The Night Before ChristmasMr and Mrs Santa
Thank you to all our talented children in Year 3 and 4 for putting on a super Christmas concert, which was based around the famous poem, ‘The Night Before Christmas’. The singing was as lively as ever and there was an amazing array of Christmas jumpers on display!
Thank to all the staff for putting it all together so well.
The audience loved it!

All the Fun of the FairA Fair Tuba Player
Thanks to everyone who helped to make this year’s Christmas Fair such a great success.

Happy Diwali! Diwali lamp
Our Reception children had a great day our when they visited the Hindu Temple in Bolton during the week after Diwali. They were amazed by all the wonderful colours and and the beautiful patterns. Thank you to all our friends at the temple for giving us such a warm welcome and sharing their faith with us.

Keeping the Faith Church Window
Year 1 enjoyed an interesting trip to St Andrew’s Church in Ramsbottom, as part of their RE topic. They learned about how Christian’s worship God and found out about lots of artefacts in the church building - they even had a go at ringing the Church bells!
Thank you to the parishioners of St Andrew’s for sharing your church with us for the day!

Turning back Time!Victorian Girl
Year 6 brought history to life when they became Victorian children for a day on their trip to Quarry Bank Mill. They learned about life in the mill and how different the daily routines were for children - from making the bed and playing games, to learning to read and write, and of course going to the privy! It was a fascinating day out.

Farm to Fork in ReceptionFruit Salad
Our reception children had a great time when they visited Tesco to learn about where our food comes from. They explored behind the scenes in the supermarket and met lots of interesting people. Thanks to the staff of Tesco for taking us on a journey from Farm to Fork!

The Great Hazlehurst Bake OffBake Off
Congratulations to all our fantastic bakers for a fabulous display of culinary talent.

Congratulations to the overall Star Baker, Lucy Carroll, and huge thanks to our judges, Judith from Park Farm and Cath from Cake Craft.
Thanks to the organisers for another wonderful event!

School Band Brings Sunshine to BirminghamBand MFY Birmingham
The school band gave a great performance in Birmingham Symphony Hall in the National Festival of Music For Youth. They were one of only two primary school brass bands in the country to be invited to take part in this prestigious event, and they made us all very proud.
The band played 4 pieces all linked by a weather theme: ‘I Can See Clearly Now the Rain Has Gone’, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘Bring Me Sunshine’, and ‘It’s Raining Men’ (for a big finish!).
The judges gave great feedback, saying they were ‘an excellent band’, who ‘captured the joy and fun of the music’ and had ‘excellent playing in all departments’.
