I Could Cook 5,000 Meals!

“I could cook 5,000 meals and I could cook 5,000 more!” Please feel free to sing this to the Proclaimers tune. Yes, Helen has indeed done this in just half a term with her amazing team of Steph, Judith and Lisa right behind her. The meals are marvellous, the children, staff and visitors love them and they are all healthy. Well done Helen, we look forward to you cooking 5,000 more!

Our Right to be Safe

At Hazel Wood one of our core values is that everyone has the right to be safe and everyone at the school shares the responsibility to ensure this is the case. As such we were delighted to have an outstanding Health and Safety audit report this week. The visit from Hampshire County Council involved an inspection of the building and grounds and scrutiny of paperwork and procedures. We were fully compliant with all legislation and have no outstanding actions at this point in time. We are not complacent and will continue to rigorously monitor everything we do. Thanks to Kim and Brian for leading this.

Our Harvest Celebration

Thank you to everyone who came to join in with our harvest celebrations. We were so proud of our children! They have been practising new songs to share and producing beautiful artwork and poetry. We especially liked the way our Year R pupils taught their families the words and actions for ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’. We are so pleased to be sending the food that was kindly donated to Youth and Families Matter.

Well done Brian!

Swimtastic!

 
We are so proud of our brilliant caretaker, Brian. He didn’t have the opportunity to learn to swim when he was a child but has conquered his fear of the water after attending regular swimming lessons in Totton and we are thrilled to tell you that he has recently got his first ever swimming award. Congratulations! What a resilient learner.

This week we are reading books by Dr Suess. We think they are exhausting to read! Look in the 'good reads' section of the blog at the end of the week, to see which one we liked best.

Achievement
We are happy to celebrate another swimming achievement this week. In order to be awarded this certificate, as well as demonstrating great swimming skills, it was also necessary to answer questions on water safety. Great work, well done!
