Today in Science, the children were having fun making predictions and then investigating the effects of increasing the amount of volts within an electrical circuit.
Some of the children in Year 6 represented our school yesterday by taking part in an Armistice Day service at the Cenotaph in West Park. They laid a wreath in remembrance of fallen soldiers and those who supported the country. The children have recently been learning about World War Two and felt privileged to take part in this very important national event.
Another important event in the Ashley Primary School calendar is Children in Need. This will take place on Friday 19th November. It is a non uniform day and we welcome any donations towards the charity that you are able to make but this not essential.

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week this year is One Kind Word. The week will begin with Odd Socks Day. We would like all of the children to come to school wearing odd socks to show we’re ALL unique and different. We want to emphasis the importance of being kind to each other and respecting each other’s individuality.
Throughout the week the children will be talking about different types of bullying, what to do about it and how we can spread kindness around the school. We will even be singing a song about it!
Parents and Carers, as always, we appreciate your continued support. If you would like to find out more about Anti-Bullying Week then please follow the link below:
In a bid to help everyone at Ashley Primary School become more environmentally proactive we applied for some plants from The Woodland Trust. You will be pleased to hear that we were successful and sometime this month we will be receiving 120 Saplings.
Although we have not been given a date for delivery we expect them to come the week beginning Monday 8th November. With this in mind we would like everyone in school to have the opportunity to get their hands dirty to help plant the saplings. We will let you know as soon as we can but your child will need to bring in appropriate footwear (wellies would be best) and if they have them, some gardening gloves.
Thank you, Mrs Jewitt 🙂

We have been reading a book called Rose Blanche. This story is told through the eyes of a young German girl, Rose Blanche, who is a witness to the immense changes occurring in Germany. Her curiosity leads her outside her town where she discovers a concentration camp. Rose Blanche secretly brings food to the children behind the barbed-wire fence.
The children have been fantastic throughout the reading of this story and I am so amazed at all of their enthusiasm and questioning. It was great to see.
