2020-2021

EYFS and KS1 Summer Performance - Staying Mentally Healthy

This year, there have been lots of changes to our normal routines and it has been a challenge for everyone. At Askwith Primary School, we understand the importance of our mental health and we have incorporated many different activities to support the wellbeing of our children into everyday school life. The children in EYFS and KS1 have worked incredibly hard to put together an assembly about how they have stayed mentally healthy this year.

EYFS and KS1 Art Exhibition 

KS2 Art Exhibition

During the last two weeks of the summer term, the children's annual art exhibitions took place in the school hall.

 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we could not invite parents to view the art exhibitions, but all of the children in school had the opportunity to view the beautiful artwork in their ‘bubbles’.

 

There are examples of the different techniques that the children have used such as painting, drawing, sewing, using digital tools, pinching and rolling clay to make pots and printing. It is clear that the children have worked incredibly hard to create their artwork and we hope that you enjoy the videos of the exhibitions.

Sports Day

The children had a fantastic sports day in their 'bubbles'.

 

Nursery, Reception and KS1 enjoyed lots of different races including a sprint, an egg and spoon race and a skipping race.

 

KS2 practised their relay skills and also competed in a sprinting race. Many of their races involved working well as a team. 

Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby Athlete, Ayaz Bhuta

The children had a wonderful morning when Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby Athlete, Ayaz Bhuta, visited.

They had a 'zoom' assembly where they listened to Ayaz Bhuta's life story and learnt how hard work can help them to achieve their goals. They also had the opportunity to ask Ayaz questions throughout the morning. 

After the assembly, each 'bubble' of children, took part in some circuit training led by Ayaz. They then went outside to see if they could put his catching skills to the test! 

Thanks to your generous contributions, all costs were covered and the school has over £500 to spend on sports equipment and sports activities. Many thanks to all the sponsors!

Mentally Healthy Week 2021

 

 

 

Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, the children enjoyed lots of different activities, with a focus on nature and the world around them.

World Book Day 2021

This year World Book Day was a little different, however, we still dressed up and celebrated our favourite characters from books together. Some children dressed up at school and some children dressed up at home. Everyone took part in lots of different activities based on stories.  

 

 

 

 

PE in Lockdown

Every child at school was provided with a range of sports equipment which was collected from the school shed at designated times.

One Year 1 child said:

"I wasn't very good at skipping but I used my skipping rope from school every day and now I can do it!" 

 

 

 

Story Time

During Lockdown, we still had our daily class story.

Some children listened on Zoom and some children listened in school, but the important thing is we still shared our story every day.
