Living History!Y6 Victorians
Y6 had a fascinating day when they turned the clock back to Victorian times and went to work in the grand hall at Tatton Park. They scrubbed the floors, made the beds, cleaned the silver and made some tasty scones! Then it was time to head back to school and to the present day for a good rest!

Year 1 Visit to St Andrew’s Church2017 Y1 Church visit
The children had a fascinating time learning about what you would find in a Christian Church. They were given a warm welcome from the vicar and they had a very good look around. They even got to ring the church bell in the bell tower!
Thank you to everyone at St Andrew’s for making us so welcome!

Art for Art’s SakeProfessor Illustrator
We had lots of fun when Professor Illustrator (Martin Olsson) came to school to lead our Art Day. He showed us how to create cartoon characters that had lots of personality and we all improved our drawing skills! Then we went back to class and did Art with our teachers all day! It was great!

A Bumper Harvest!2017 Harvest
Thanks to everyone who supported out Harvest Festival. It was great to see so many parents and friends in the audience. The musical performances from each class were wonderful and we were pleased to be able to donate over 500-worth of food to the food-bank charity, ‘Porch Boxes’. Well done!

Who’s the King of the Castle?2017 Castle Day
Y1 had a brilliant time on their Castle Day. They turned their classroom into a castle and prepared an enormous feast, which they ate together at a giant table. They even killed a dragon, which they found in the nature area! It was great fun!

The Pick of the Crop!Prize potato!
There was great excitement at the final weigh-in of the 2017 Hazlehurst Potato Growing Competition! Each class dug up their prized potatoes and then gathered together in the school hall for the results to be revealed. As a school, we grew an amazing 100 kg of potatoes, but the overall winners were the children of Year 5, who managed to grow an incredible 23 kg in their raised bed.

Y5&6 Summer Concert - The Three Little Pigs3 Little Pigs
Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhyme came to life brilliantly in the Y5&6 summer concert with an outstanding performance of The Three Little Pigs. The singing, dancing and acting was superb, and the audience were all mighty relieved when the wolf got his ‘come-uppance’ at the hands of Red Riding Hood!
Thanks to the staff for all their hard work and to the children for the wonderful entertainment!

Year 3&4 Summer Concert  - ‘Dragon Days’ Dragon Days
The children gave a wonderful performance of this hilarious musical show, which told the story of how a group of hapless villagers faced a fire-breathing dragon and lived to tell the tale!
The audience loved the singing, dancing and acting.
Well done everyone!

School Band in the Music For Youth National FestivalMFY Birmingham

Thanks also to all the supporters who came to cheer them on.
Well done everyone!

All the Fun of the Fair - Summer 2017Mr Bounce
Everyone had a great time at this year’s summer fair. The rain stayed away and we even had a bit of sunshine at the end! The pony rides and owls were a big hit; there was an action-packed football competition; the refreshments from the barbecue and cake stall were delicious (as usual) and the event raised a wonderful  2300 for the school.
Thank you to the organisers and all the many helpers. Well done!

Bring Me Sunshine!Bandemonium
The school band gave a great performance in Bury Bandemonium.
It was a scorcher, but everyone still played their best and there were lots of happy faces in Bury Town Centre.
 Well done everyone!

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!
