Sincere & heartfelt thank you to all our staff & pupils, the organisers and participants for marking Remembrance Day in Ashton-under-Hill.
During these unprecedented times, we are all experiencing loss and making sacrifices, but lest we forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for others and to protect the freedoms we have.
‘No-one is safe until everyone is safe’ and keep hold of today’s message of hope and peace for the future.
This week we have been busy learning about the Hindu celebration of Diwali which is taking place over the coming weekend.
On Wednesday 11th November the whole school took part in our Act of Remembrance led by our Year 5 pupils. We were very grateful for the support of Mr. Green, the Standard Bearer for the local branch of the Royal British Legion, and the beautiful playing of ‘The Last Post’ by Mr. Butler and Mrs. Holme. We were also very proud of all our children for their involvement.
This week we have had a firework theme in Acorn Class.
With the lockdown coming into force this week, we are well aware that there is lots going on for everyone at the moment. People often ask us how things are going in school and we thought it would be good to share a glimpse of life in school and how our lovely children are thriving in our happy and calm school environment.
Our Year 5 pupils would like to show you around our wonderful school.
As the Acorn children come to the end of their first half term in Reception and pre-school, it really is the time to say how very impressed we are by their superb attitude and by all that they have achieved in the past eight weeks.
