Sponsored Obstacle Course

The children took part in the sponsored obstacle course and worked hard to complete it as many times as they could.



National Poetry Day

This year, the theme was ‘Truth’ and each class wrote a poem all about it.



By 3R

At Hazelwood we value honesty

When I speak, you need to trust in me

Every time I do something

My mind goes ping!

Honesty makes me want to sing!

Truth is so lovely

So I want to speak loudly

To let you all know

That honesty is what I want to show!

This value I will not let go!

In 3R we show respect

And in return, the truth we expect

Never tell a lie

So don’t be shy

Let’s keep the truth between you and I!



Poem by 3M


Stone Age

Palaeolithic people threw spears into water to catch fish,

Palaeolithic people gathered berries and nuts too,

Palaeolithic people used to live in caves,



Hazelwood is the school with values,

Hazelwood is a democratic place,

Kindness is what makes Hazelwood great,



Family is when you do things for each other #amazing,

Everyone thinks their Mum is the best,

Brothers can be super annoying,



Squirrels have sharp claws they use to climb up trees,

Woolly Mammoths evolved into elephants,

Dolphins are very playful mammals,



Tree’s leaves only fall in September, October and November,

Autumn turns leaves orange, yellow, brown and red,

Winter is when animals hibernate,




It is good to tell the truth,

Because lying is bad,

The truth is good in many ways,

Whilst lies can make you sad.


Telling the truth is important,

We tell the truth at school,

Honesty is a value,

And it is a rule.

At home we show respect,

As it’s the right thing to do,

We tell the truth to parents,

And other people too.

Big Bang

Stone Age Day

The children took part in their Big Bang all about the Stone Age. Whilst some children were searching for food, other children were painting in the Stone Age way. In the afternoon, the children sat back and enjoyed the film ‘Early Man’ which introduced them to the Stone Age way of life.
