Everyone had a great time at the Hazlehurst Egg-lympics! Eggs were balanced, rolled, flipped and thrown as the children completed their eggy challenges and finally took their places in the giant egg raffle to see who would win the tastiest chocolate eggs.
It was great fun - thanks to all the helpers and organisers.

We are very proud of you!
Year 4 enjoyed a visit from some special visitors this week and they were inspired to create their own, rather cute models. I wonder which is your favourite?
Don’t forget to visit our Children’s Work page. We hope you enjoy looking at our work!
Year 6 Feel the Heat!
Our Year 6 class had a great time when they joined Mrs Schofield and the Year 8 Eco Club at Woodhey High School. They collaborated with Year 8s to design an “Eco Friendly” house . The class learned about the impact of global warming on the planet and how small changes to our homes can reduce the damage. Thank you Woodhey!
Have you ever wondered how to wash a woolly mammoth? Year 1 will tell you how!
Spring Has Sprung!
There are new signs of life all around us at the moment. The eggs have hatched into fluffy chicks, the daffodils are waving in the breeze, the Hazlehurst frogs in the pond are busy making frogspawn and the seedlings are sprouting in the raised beds!
What an exciting time of year!
Annual Plant Sale
Summer is coming. Set your garden ablaze with colour! Wow your friends with your home-grown produce and turn your children’s fingers green!
This year’s plant sale is running entirely on advance orders, so simply complete the order form and return it to the school office - we will do the rest!
We were pleased to receive a letter and a school photograph recently from Mr Arthur Keown, a past pupil of Hazlehurst, who attended our school in 1941.
His letter gives a fascinating glimpse into the history of the school and its old headteacher, Mr Burton.
Those were the days!
Adventure is out there!
Year 6 pupils have produced fabulous written work relating to the Disney film “Up”. To round off our work we put our maths skills to the test, enlarging a simple line drawing from the film and finally, used watercolour techniques to paint them.
We hope you like our mini masterpieces!
Y5 Visit to Woodhey Science Week
Year 5 had a great time when they took part in a ‘Vicious Volcanoes’ lesson as part of the Primary Science Week at Woodhey High School.
Mr Dodd, the Geography teacher taught everyone about what a volcano is made of and then showed the class how to construct their very own.
All the groups worked really hard with paper, card, stick tape and a water bottles to produce their very own volcanoes.
Then it was off outside to make them erupt using vinegar, water, washing up liquid and bicarbonate of soda!
Y6 have also published more of their brilliant personification poetry.

Banding Together for Christmas!
The school band spread lots of Christmas cheer in their super performances in Long Street Methodist Church, Bury Market and Ramsbottom Market.
Well done to all our fine young musicians!
... to all our friends from Hazel the hippo and Hurst the duck
(and their pet lamb)!
We hope you enjoy this year’s whole school Christmas song
Here Comes Santa Claus
Christmas Talent Show
Hazlehurst school has definitely got talent - and lots of it!
The judges had a tough job picking winners from the fantastic selection of acts on display - from poetry, singing and dancing to magic shows and even an impersonation of Deirdre Barlow!
It was a great show - thanks to everyone who took part.
It was great fun!
Infants’ Nativity Play
The infants were so excited they just couldn’t keep still as they performed ‘A Wriggly Nativity’! The audience loved the songs and the acting, and all the children’s happy faces. Well done everyone and a special ‘thank you’ to all the members of staff who helped to get the show ready!
A Night To Remember
Everyone had a wonderful time at the Key Stage 2 Christmas Concert. Years 3 and 4 took us ‘Off to Bethlehem’ with a traditional nativity play and then Years 5 and 6 told us all about ‘What Christmas Means to Me’.
The show ended with the Christmas classic, ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’ performed by the whole of Key Stage 2.
Thanks to all the staff who helped to prepare this great performance and to the children for their brilliant enthusiasm. It really was a night to remember.
2013 Christmas Fair
Our 2013 Christmas Fair was a great success. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it such good fun. The games and stalls were excellent, the refreshments were very tasty, the school choir and school band performed beautifully and everyone had a great time!
The event raised £1250 for school. Thank you!
Year 5 Road Safety Poster Competition Winners
As part of road safety week, the children in Year 5 took part in a poster design competition. Stephensons solicitors, in partnership with the charity Break, delivered a road safety lesson and then judged the posters. Three lucky winners were chosen and won Trafford Centre vouchers.
‘Oh they do like to be beside the seaside!’
Year 2 have been comparing our own town of Ramsbottom with ‘a seaside location’ and it was time to experience it all first hand with a trip to Blackpool!
They took in the view from the top of the tower, went wild in Jungle Jim’s, had a look at the action in the ballroom and finished it all of with a walk down the prom! It was great fun!
Big Maths at Hazlehurst
We have been using Big Maths for 6 months and it has been great fun. If you would like to know more about how the scheme works, please read our Big Maths Guide for Parents and Carers - it will give you an overview and tell you how you can help at home!
Year 6 Victorian Experience
History came to life when the Year 6 class turned the clocks back to 1886 on their visit to Tatton Park for a Victorian experience! They came searching for work as servants to Lord and Lady Egerton and they had to work hard all day learning the skills that they would need, such as making beds, lighting fires, scrubbing floors and, best of all, making scones!
At the end of the day the housekeeper gave her verdict - and the good news was that they were all offered jobs! Hoorah - three good meals a day from now on and no more worries about being sent to work down the mine!
Tea and Toys
Thanks to everyone who helped to run our toy sale this year and to everyone who donated toys and cakes for the refreshments - the usual high standards were maintained (mmm!).
Gardening Day - Autumn 2013
Everyone had a great time getting close to nature on Gardening Day. Working alongside our friendly volunteers from Incredible Edible, the children and staff planted all sorts seeds, bulbs, shrubs and trees and when they were not outside in the fresh air they were inside doing Art and Craft work that was linked to the great outdoors!
Our new raised beds and now full of interesting possibilities and the new playground planters are full of spring bulbs, so we have lots to look forward to in the new year! Thanks to everyone who helped to make it such good fun!
