House Team – Spelling Bee

On the 9th June 2017 Astley held its very first Spelling Bee house team competition! Children worked in pairs to spell the words with suffixes, double letter, silent letters and common exception words. All the contestants showed an excellent command of spelling and fantastic team work under the pressure from the buzzer. Eventually after a close contest it was the Team Phoenix that came out on top.

Yellow House Team have froglets in their little pond! The garden is looking very pretty and we have picked our first ripe red strawberry.

Mini Tennis

On Monday 22nd May children from Years 3 and 4 were entered into a Mini Tennis event held at Easton Tennis Centre. They were first coached in how to play the game and were then split into 3 teams. Our A-team reached the final and came third overall. Thank you to Mrs Hill for supporting us on the trip.

Netball Tournament

On Friday 21st April eight of our year 5 and 6 pupils attended a Netball Tournament at Neatherd High School organised by the Schools Sports Partnership.  The children had a great day with over 30 goals scored!  Well done to all the children who took part.


House Team – Dance Competition

The last day of the Spring Term ended on a high with the House Team Dance competition 2017 event. There was fantastic support for the event with many relatives attending to support their children. We had some very special judges this year who very kindly gave their time to do a very difficult task.

The theme was the 1980’s and the children worked really hard during their lunchtimes with teachers to choreograph a group dance which included two children from each year group.

The winners were Phoenix (Red) House Team, very closely followed by Orion (Green) and in joint third place were Pegasus (Yellow) and Delphinus (Blue) House Teams.

Everybody got up to dance at the end when Pheonix did their encore to I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston which was the perfect ending.

Well done to everybody who took part, we certainly have some winning memories to treasure.
