Astley running Club has started for the Spring term. Six intrepid runners joined us with a couple more hoping to come next week.
On Tuesday 7th November six girls from years 5 and 6 went to WNDSSP to play in a football tournament. There were twelve teams altogether divided into four groups, at this point, after playing six games we were placed 2nd. During the afternoon, all the first placed teams played a knock out as did the second and third placed. Astley played brilliantly winning 5-0 and 8-0 consecutively. A good day was had by all. Thanks goes to Mrs Starling and Mr Hill for helping escort the children for the day.
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 Thursday, it was time to visit Eyam Museum to learn about the plague. We had lunch in the village then took a stroll to the cemetery to look for victims from many years ago!
Then our final task was at Dark Peak to complete our soil testing, to compare to White Peak & Briston, before returning to the hostel for some well-deserved free time!
