A truly memorable Christmas Nativity, performed by Years 5, 4 and 3. Congratulations to all pupils who took part in the performance at St Mary's Church.
Year 4 spent an amazing day in Cardiff on Tuesday 26th November. First they experienced ‘hands on’ science at Techniquest and then a truly fascinating session in the planetarium, where the pupils were congratulated on their superb knowledge of our solar system, by the staff of the centre. After a short walk around Cardiff Bay, the pupils arrived at The Doctor Who Experience, where they stepped into the interactive world of the Doctor (some were genuinely scared at certain points in this virtual experience). Finally, they looked around the two floors of Tardis sets, costumes and monsters, which are actually used in the T.V show. This school visit must be ranked as one of the best and Mrs Jones has certainly experienced a great many!
A big well done to all three teams that entered the ‘Children in Need It’s a Knockout’ competition on Saturday 23rd November at the Larruperz Centre. The event, which was organized by Ashfield’s very own Mr Marshall, was open to teams from all the local primary schools. In total, 8 teams competed, including three from Ashfield Park: #Yoda, Sunset chocolate Cake and Ashfield Avengers. After a closely fought battle, #Yoda narrowly beat teams from Brampton Abbotts and Weston Under Penyard. However, throughout the competition, Ashfield’s teams were consummate sportsmen and women, borrowing players here and there when they needed extra and raising the roof as they cheered one another on (we definitely won on the loudest school front too!). In the end, they all agreed that all of the Ashfield teams had won collectively – the Ashfield Spirit is alive and kicking!

Pupils from Year 4 excitedly returned to Ross Community Garden to harvest their bumper crop of pumpkins, which they planted back in June, with the help of Tim Shelley and other volunteers from the project. It was a great learning experience for the children, who each cut the best pumpkin from their plant, to take home. The Community Garden is an inspirational project and staff and pupils from Ashfield Park School would like to thank Tim Shelley for involving them in the first year’s harvest from the garden.
