School Events

 

Children from KS2 took part in the 'Better Together' event at Morley Town Hall on Wednesday 21st June - you may have seen us featured on Calendar! The children performed brilliantly, in front of a packed town hall.  I have uploaded the videos below.  The quality of the recording has been reduced in order to put them onto the website but I will try to find a suitable time in school for parents to come in and see the original recodings.

Carol Singing

The choir went to the White Rose Centre to sing carols.  We collected money to buy a bench for our Forget-Me-Not garden and raised £160.  Lots of people stopped to listen and everyone said the choir were brilliant!  Well Done!

Well done Lucy and Matilda for representing our school at the Remembrance Parade in Morley!

We hosted a visit by representatives from the other Aspire school councils on Friday 11th November.  Andrea Jenkyns MP came along to talk to the children about being an MP.

We have started work on our Forget-Me-Not garden.  Thank you to Floratec, our gardeners, for donating a cherry tree to the garden and for helping the children to plant it.

Good Luck to our Year 6 Leavers!

We wish all of our Year 6 leavers all the very best as they move on to high school.  It has been a pleasure to have you at Asquith and you will all be missed.

Thank you to the children who attended the service to commemorate the beginning of the Battle of the Somme.  You were excellent ambassadors for our school.  Well done!

Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday

We celebrated Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday with a garden party in her honour.  Unfortunately the wet weather meant that we had to have our picnic in the hall but that didn't spoil our fun!

We have also been running to Marseille for the start of the European Championship and the whole school completed the trip this morning by walking around the school grounds together!

Here is  slide show of our day!

Fuel for School

Fuel for School is an exciting initiative created by The Real Junk Food Project in partnership with Richmond Hill Primary School.

The programme has three key objectives:

  1. Remove hunger as a barrier to learning
  2. Highlight the importance of nutrition, well-being and the associated benefits linked to learning
  3. Highlight the vast amounts of wasted (yet perfectly edible) food across our local and wider communities.

Here at Asquith we are using the food to educate the children on these three main objectives and engage the local community in a market stall. Every week we will receive two deliveries of food, that would otherwise be destined for landfill. The children have complete responsibility over the market stall, from sorting the food to counting the money. The children will decide how to spend any money taken at the end of the year. The stall operates on a pay as you feel (PAYF) basis which means you can pay as much or as little as you would like.

Last Thursday we took our first delivery and six children from Year 5 set up a table as a market stall in the playground. The uptake and response was phenomenal. Because of the work the children had done in class they were able to talk to parents about every aspect of Fuel for School. Five minutes after the bell at the end of the day all the food had gone. No bins fed, but plenty of bellies around Morley that night!

Thank you everyone for your support and I hope you continue to support us and this fantastic initiative through visiting our market stall every Tuesday and Thursday.
