When the Badgers visited Romsey


Today the Badgers spent the morning in Romsey. We started the day with a quick coach ride into Romsey, our first activity was to walk around the town centre and compare how Romsey has changed. After that we were lucky enough to have a tour round the Abbey where we learnt that four men bought the Abbey from King Henry 8th so he wouldn’t knock it down. We ended our trip with lunch outside in the Abbey grounds.

Drama Club

Thank you to our wonderful Drama Club members for all of the hard work that they have put in to their show: Eddie the Penguin Saves the World! We all loved the singing, dancing and acting this afternoon and enjoyed hearing the very important message in the story. What a great way to kick start Walk to School Week!

Baking in the Rabbits!

On Thursday, the Rabbits made some delicious cookies to finish their Maths learning on weight and using scales. We carefully read the recipe to see how many grams of each ingredient we needed to measure out and them showed excellent teamwork in making the cookies. When they were baked, we enjoyed them in the beautiful sunshine!


Cross Country at Gang Warily!

On Friday 6th May, in beautiful sunshine, some children from the Athletic and Running Club represented Hazel Wood in the New Forest Infant Cross Country Competition at Gang Warily. They did extremely well against many other schools and certainly did Hazel Wood very proud! Well done! Thank you to all the parents and carers who also came to cheer the children along!
