    A group of 60 very excited children had a trip of lifetime yesterday when they went with a group of staff to see Disney's the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre in central London.

    On Thursday, as is Hazelwood tradition, the choir entertained the crowd gathered around the Christmas tree at the Palmers Green triangle as we officially welcomed in the start of the Christmas period.

  • Year 5 Trip to Gilwell

    Published 20/10/23

    On Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October, our Year 5 children headed off to Gilwell Scout Camp for a couple of days of outdoor learning. They really enjoyed sharing rooms with their friends and taking part in exciting activities such as crate stacking, bouldering, zip wire, pedal go-carts and wobbly pole. 

    The children spent time playing outdoor games and exploring the woods, identifying trees and looking for hidden secrets. Some even created their own woodland person from the natural materials they found. Some children were a little nervous about taking part, but everyone challenged themselves to overcome their fears, showing our values of resilience and courage as well as fantastic teamwork and responsibility. Despite a little rain, the children had a fantastic time and enjoyed taking part in activities they may not have tried before.

  • Year 6 PGL

    Published 29/09/23

    On Monday, some very weary Year 6 children and staff arrived back to school following their fantastic trip to PGL Caythorpe Court. The children had a wonderful time, taking part in a whole host of different activities: climbing, abseiling, Giant Swing, canoeing, orienteering and archery, just to name a few! Lots of sweets were eaten and not much sleep was had but all of the children demonstrated our school values of courage, ambition and teamwork throughout the trip - we couldn’t have been prouder of all their achievements!
    Huge thanks to Miss McBride, Ms Reid, Mrs Conner, Mr Jack and Miss Rosalind for leading the trip and giving the children these life-long memories!

  • A Golden Ticket

    Published 15/07/23

    The Year 6 production of 'A Golden Ticket' was truly magnificent! The children performed so well, having learnt their lines, the songs and the dance moves during the half term. There were singers, dancers, prop makers,  Oompa Loompas, bratty children (who we know are lovely in real life - they are simply great actors!), suspect German actors, poor manners with too much burping, and, of course Willy Wonker herself with a lot of chocolate!! Not forgetting the technicians who ensured that the show ran without a hitch - it was a wonderful team performance from our very special year 6!
    Huge thanks to all of the adults who helped to make this show so special: Ms Kelly, Miss Saker, Mrs Leite, Mrs Watson, Mr Jack and many of our support staff who worked so hard to support our children, make the props and help with costumes.  
    And to our directors and producers - Ms Reid, Mr Robotham and a special mention for Mrs Barker who choreographed and made sure the show was simply brilliant!

  • Art Exhibition - Year 1, 3 and 5

    Published 13/07/23

    Following the successful art exhibition for years 2 and 4 last half term, we held our second Art exhibition this time for Year 1, 3 and 5. All year groups have all been "Working in 3D".

    Year 1- Making Sculptural Birds

    In Year 1, the children have combined their making and drawing skills to create wonderful birds. Inspired by a range of artists and using a range of media including oil pastels, water colours, pencils, crayons, the children carefully recreated ‘feather’ like drawings before creating a collage of their work on a foam board resembling the bird’s body.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Year 3- Stories Through Drawing & Making

    In year 3, the children have been taking inspiration from different artists and illustrators. They looked at Quentin Blake’s characters in more detail and created their own sculptures inspired by his work. They used different techniques to construct and model their 3d pieces then used acrylic paint to finish and add details to the sculptures.

     

    Year 5 – Set Making

    In year 5, the children created their own model theatre sets.  They started by looking at the work of Rae Smith – set designer for the production War Horse and then looked at the sets of other big theatre shows like The Lion King and Les Misérables. They discussed how the set created the atmosphere for the production and helped tell the story. Using the stimulus of either Under the Sea, the Jungle or the Savannah, they sketched plans for a set and then created them using shoe boxes, paint, construction materials, fabric and their imaginations.

    The whole school visited the art exhibition and were very excited to see the work of our artists. It was also wonderful to see so many parents attend the Exhibition after school!

     

    The artworks were all absolutely amazing! We have very talented artists at Hazelwood!‚Äč
