This week our Year 5 pupils went on their leavers’ trip to Aztec water sports. Everybody got the opportunity to do kayaking and use the SUP boards which are paddle boards for small groups. It was great fun and a lovely way to celebrate all of their hard work this year.
What a fantastic day we all had on Sports Day on Friday. The children were excited, competitive, fair and kind – showing
many of the values that we are trying to develop in their time at Ashton. Here are a few photos of a lovely day.
We enjoyed a fantastic trip to the Three Counties Show
On Tuesday of this week, after 21 days of waiting and watching the eggs in the incubator, we had chicks hatching throughout the day on Tuesday.
The highlight of this week was a fantastic visit to Sandfield Farm on the most beautiful spring day.
We have been enjoying the story of ‘Centipede’s 100 shoes’
What a fantastic day the Year 2s had at Sandfield Farm! We were so lucky with the weather and had a really lovely time pond dipping and then playing in the woodland playground. The children really enjoyed being out in the countryside and seeing all the different creatures that they found in their dipping nets.
This week we have started our new topic ‘From a tiny seed’ about animal and plant life cycles and the children have been adding their ideas to our planning. They have thought of lots of questions about plants, mini beasts and local wildlife to which they want to find answers. They have decided to make our role play area into the ‘Rainbow Garden Centre’ and in class we are looking after 20 eggs in an incubator and hope to have some baby chicks hatching in three weeks’ time.
