Key Stage One Play Equipment

On Thursday 20.6.19 we had our grand opening of our new Key Stage One playground equipment. We would like to thank Friends Of Ashtree and our school community for raising the £10,000. As you can see, the children were really excited as we counted down to the cutting of the ribbon by our Friends of Ashtree committee members. Well done to Mrs. Rook and a couple of Key Stage One pupils for testing it out for us.

Ashtree Primary School Early Years Success

Netball Tournament

On Tuesday 16th July, the Ashtree Netball squad played in the Stevenage Primary Netball tournament. Both the A league and B league teams played and demonstrated once again, the amazing skills and sportsmanship that we have come to expect from them.

In what turned out to be a very busy afternoon, the girls played 4 or 5 matches against other school sides.  With 6 games being played simultaneously each time and a very quick turnaround before the next match, the time flew by!

The A league team won all but one of their tournament matches and came 2nd overall in the tournament.  The League results for the season were also announced and Ashtree came 2nd in the league too!  Well done Ashtree!

The B league team did not make the top 3 places in either the tournament or the league, but the potential these girls show is incredible.  I am thoroughly looking forward to the 2019/2020 netball season and how the squad will play!

I would like to thank all of the parents of the squad for their support; in enabling their child to attend matches, to understanding when matches are cancelled at the last minute and for helping them to practise their skills at home.  This has made such a difference!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank both Mrs Cook and Mrs Young, for their time and expertise! The Ashtree netball team would not be where it is without either of them!

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 v Peartree Spring – 19.06.19

Wednesday afternoon saw the final A league game being played for this season.  We were lucky with the weather and  we were able to complete the game before the downpour began.  It was also lovely to have such a large group of spectators and I hope we kept those waiting for Year 3 to return from their trip entertained!

The girls played brilliantly and it is fantastic to see how well they have developed and progressed over the two years they have been at netball club.  The game tonight showed fluency and great communication between the team.  We won the game 14 – 0 and this means that the A league team have only lost 3 games this season! Well done to all of the girls!

Our captain for the game was Leila, and the Player of the Match, chosen by the Peartree team, was Jessica Y.  Jessica listened carefully to instruction and followed it perfectly.  She zoomed around the court, creating many opportunities and enabling the fluid and accurate passing we know the whole team are capable of.
