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 Video

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we could not invite parents to view the art exhibition, 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 mixing paint, drawing, sewing, making clay pots and tiles and printing. It is clear that the children have worked incredibly hard to create their artwork and we hope that you enjoy the video of the exhibition.

Viewing the EYFS and KS1 Art Exhibition

The children had a fantastic time viewing their artwork in the Art Exhibition.

The children had a fantastic time using clay to make pinch pots and tiles. Their patterns were inspired by South African music, a genre that we will be learning about soon in our music lessons.

The children worked very hard on their artwork this year. They have used a range of different techniques such as drawing with HB, 2B and 6B pencils, colour mixing, using tools to make patterns in clay, painting and printing with natural materials.

Sports Day

The children had a fantastic sports day that involved a sprint, a skipping race, a bear crawl and an egg and spoon race. We had lots of certificates to give out!

Enjoying the school field

The children enjoyed a visit from Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby Athlete, Ayaz Bhuta. They had a 'zoom' assembly and had the opportunity to ask Ayaz questions throughout the morning. After the assembly, the children took part in circuit training, led by Ayaz. They then went outside and put Ayaz's catching skills to the test.

While the weather has been dry, the children have been making the most of the school field at playtimes. They have played lots of games and enjoyed drinks and healthy snacks under the shade of the trees. 



Year 1 have had extra tennis lessons this half term. They have learnt key skills needed to play tennis and applied these to matches.

Nell Bank

During fitness lessons, the children have been learning how to work as a team and how to communicate well to achieve an end goal. 


The children did not let a bit of rain spoil their school trip. They had a wonderful day learning about animal habitats and the senses animals use to keep safe. The children also went on a minibeast hunt and enjoyed pond dipping. 

We spent time learning how to be mindful by breathing carefully. We grew from a seed to a tree, carefully mirrored our partners and listened to calming music while breathing deeply.



Year 1 have been learning how to draw using thick, thin, wavy and straight lines. We have also used different grades of pencil such as HB, 2B and 6B in our artwork. 

The children in Year 1 have been working very hard on their knowledge of running stitch. They concentrated well and worked in a very safe way with the needles. 

Class 2 Skip-a-thon



For Comic Relief, we had a Skipathon. We have been practising in our break times! 

During our fitness sessions, we have played lots of competitive team games and have used our knowledge from gymnastics.  

We have been learning about the important features of a plant and what plants need. We found out that plants need soil (food), light and water to grow. We grew cress in our window and watched how the stems, roots and leaves grew. 

Wellbeing and Playtimes

Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

We are really happy to be back at school in our bubble with our friends! 

Maths during lockdown

We know how to keep safe, healthy and happy in school. 


The children enjoyed lots of Christmassy activities during the final week of term. 

One way Year 1 continued with their maths learning during lockdown was by finding pairs of different objects. 


The children have been working very hard on their phase 5 phonics. 


It is important to learn that maps can look very different. 



Anti-Bullying Week

The children had lots of fun creating autumnal wreaths. 

The children have been learning how to catch and throw with increasing accuracy during PE lessons. 

To mark the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week, the children all wore odd socks to show that everyone is an individual.
