A wonderful Harvest Festival - A treat for the grandparents
What a treat the grandparents of Ashley School have had today. They have been served delicious soup made from vegetables grown in the Ashley garden, prepared by the Year 6 children and then served by them in a sleek and professional manner. After this treat for their taste buds they sat back and enjoyed wonderful Harvest performances from all the year groups. These ranged from poetry, to song, to instrumental recipes. Of course the festival was rounded off by everyone singing together the classic Harvest song 'We Plough the Fields and Scatter'. Thank you to all the children, the year 6 parents for serving the tea and biscuits afterwards and the grandparents for coming along to celebrate this wonderful time of year.
We have high expectations of our children, whether it be in extending the more able, helping them perform to the best of their ability, or exploring a more reflective dimension to their life.
We place sustainability at the centre of all that we do and are a national leader in this field and we engage our children and the wider school community in all that we do.
