On Monday 6th March 2017, Astley Primary School celebrated World Book Day. The children made a fantastic effort and came dressed as a variety of story characters with everything from Harry Potter to a crayon.
The school also welcomed Pippa Goodhart, a published author, who shared stories she had written and stories from her life with all the classes across the school.
It was a fantastic day with lots of opportunities to inspire the children at Astley to read and write!
The House Teams were set a challenge to design a hand drawn and eye catching poster about reading, including tips to encourage others to read. The final 3 winning posters were selected based on the criteria, with two winning entries from Red House Team and one winning entry from Green House Team. This means that Red House Team scooped up first place, with Green close behind in second and Blue and Yellow House Teams coming joint third. We are looking forward to displaying the winning entries around school!
Gill Building have been running a competition for the children to design safety posters to be put up on our building site. The winners were announced today in assembly. There were 18 winners who each received a £10 book token. Three of the final designs have been enlarged and will be displayed on site. Thank you to the amazing generosity of Gill Building.
The children were very excited with the new equipment from our sponsors Butcher Andrews solicitors. The scooter is for our younger members. The balance vehicle to develop coordination and the Lego figures were requested by the children.
It is fantastic to have the support of a local business. Thanks again Butcher Andrews!
On Thursday 1st December some Year 3 and 4 children played in a Football Tournament run by the Community Sports Foundation. The children played really well and showed some great sportsmanship. Supporting each other and other teams. The team came away finishing second overall. There was a particular mention for Taylor Mortlock and Jessica Gould we received a special sticker for showing all round sportsmanship. Well done to all those who took part.
