On Friday 30th June we held our annual whole school Race for Life event starting with a Zumba warm up. It was a huge success with lots of parents and family members also taking part. We have already raised lots of money for Cancer Research and the sponsorships continue to come in. Will we reach our £1500 target? Thank you to everyone who supported our Race for Life event.
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.
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.
