From January 2019, Ashtree Primary School will be adopting a new approach to homework. Details of this approach were sent home on the 9th January and can be viewed again by clicking here.

Homework for 23.01.19. was based on Chinese New Year. Below is a selection  of Chinese New Year decorations made by our children from Reception to Year 6. At Ashtree we are extremely proud of some of the amazing work which our pupils are producing at home.


Netball Fixture

Ashtree Netball Squad played two matches this week, with both the A league and B league teams representing our school.  As is now normal for our girls, both teams played with skill, resilience  and determination.

Our first match was an A league fixture against St Margaret Clitherow at Ashtree on Wednesday 6th February, our second time against them.  We knew that this would be a challenging game, as the St Margaret team had already demonstrated a very efficient defence and attack in our first match.  The Ashtree squad gave their all until the very end of the game, which unfortunately resulted in a loss of 1 – 16.  The Ashtree girls should know that they did our school proud with their continuous energy throughout the game and their ability to adapt to changes made in their positions.  It was not the outcome we had hoped for, but the girls should be proud of the game they played and their perseverance to succeed.  The player of the match, chosen by St Margaret Clitherow, was Jessica Y, who took on the position of Centre during the match, which enabled us to build a stronger line of attack and defence.  Despite never having played this position for Ashtree before, Jessica gave it 100%, intercepting passes and making the flow of the St Margaret Clitherow team’s play less fluid.

Our second match was the B league fixture against Longmeadow on Thursday 7th February.  This was only the second match our B league team had played and for a couple of the players, this was their first match.  It was a fantastic game to watch, as the Ashtree team developed in confidence, settled into their positions and put into practise the skills they had been taught.  We won the game 9 – 4.  Captain of the team today was Maisie F, who was also chosen as the player of the match by the Longmeadow squad.  It has been fantastic to see the progress Maisie has made since first starting netball and she thoroughly deserves this award.  She created opportunities for channeling the ball by finding space to receive passes and supported the rest of the team brilliantly.  A special mention should also be made to Jessica Y, who, although usually playing for the A league, stepped into a very unfamiliar Goal Attack position for the B league team, as we were a player down.  She also played in very fair and sporting way, by enabling opportunities for the rest of the team and helping them to develop into the amazing young netball players they promise to be.
