Just to remind you of the start times for Sports Day this Friday 6th July. Please note that this has been posted in our newsletter each week, since 24th May.
Reception/Year1/Year 2 – 9:30am
Years 3 – 6 – 1:30pm
Anyone coming to watch and cheer the children on should enter the school field through the double gates at the bottom of the main drive. A member of staff will be supervising this gate and everyone should leave this way too after the morning event.
At the end of the afternoon event, the children will return into school to return their chairs and collect their belongings. They will then be dismissed through the normal doors, providing there is an adult waiting to collect them. If you then walk round to the infant yard, younger siblings will be handed out to you from there. Where there is no adult to collect a child early, we will obviously keep them in school until the bell goes.
Please remember that any photos taken are for your own personal use and MUST NOT be uploaded onto any social media sites. This is for the safety of some of our children. We very much appreciate your support on this matter.
We look forward to seeing you there and fingers (and everything else) crossed for the weather!
Please remember to check the school website – ashleyprimary.co.uk regularly for updates and news. Newsletters are uploaded every Friday and have important dates etc on the first page.

This week we planted carrots and peas! Our potatoes have also started to grow. After that, we gave everything a good drink of water.
On Wednesday after school, an exciting discovery was made by Miss Evans… a Pied Wagtail bird has decided one of our watering cans is the perfect place to make a home. Take a look at our visitor sitting on the roof (watching us) and then hopping back to her eggs. Now we’ve had a sneak peak, I think we’ll leave her in peace and hopefully we’ll hear the chirp of hungry chicks soon!
And… here’s the video (she’s on the shed roof):
See you next week!

We have been super busy in Gardening club! This week we have been planting potatoes and continuing to remove weeds from the other beds, ready to plant more fruit or veg. Here are some photos:
Why not go and have a look at our hard work next time you’re near the garden at school?!
The Foundation of Light and Ashley Primary School are hosting a coffee morning on Wednesday 2nd May at 8.30 for all parents and family members of Ashley Primary School.
The Foundation of Light will be there to talk about their FREE family learning course available to parents and family members of Ashley Primary.
This course will help you develop your confidence and social skills. There will be activities that will help you make decisions, identify your strengths and be more confident working with others.
The course is ideal for those looking to move into work in the future or just develop their confidence and social skills
During the coffee morning we will talk about what is involved in the course and try out some activities involved, including:
*Buzz personality tests (what animal are you and what does it say about you!)
*Coping with pressure countdown quiz
*Dragons Den – Who would you invest in?
Biscuits will be provided and we promise it won’t feel like you are back at school!
Every Friday afternoon playtime, there’s nothing better than dancing the time away to our favourite songs on the yard – it’s even better when the sun is shining!
Check out our video below:
Let Miss Lawson know your favourite song and who knows, you may hear it one Friday! Have a great weekend everyone, don’t forget your sun cream.
