A huge thank you to all our carers, parents and relatives who came to support our Christingle led by KS1.  I was so impressed with the children's reading, acting, singing and behaviour as they presented us with the nativity story and made an atmospheric start to Christmas with the church looking stunning lit by our Christingle candles.

This year ,we couldn't manage to get a date to visit the church for Harvest Festival so decided to keep our celebrations low key with a Sing-along to our Harvest Greatest Hits.  Thanks you to all our parents and carers who supported us with this.  We're also really grateful for the donations to Otley Food Bank.  School Council will take these to the food bank next week and feed back to the school on the fabulous works they do for our community.

Peace Rose for the Inner Wheel Club

Peace Rose for the Inner Wheel Club 1
The President of Otley Inner Wheel Club, Jennifer Angus, brought Ashfield a gift of a Peace Rose to celebrate World Peace Day on Friday 21st September.  After an assembly earlier in the week, the children wrote their ideas to make the world and our school a more peaceful place on tiny doves.  You can see these in the background of our photograph.  Mr Patel and his gardening team are going to choose a tranquil place in the magic garden for our special gift.

The children in Year 6 had an amazing time on residential - despite the rain.  They were real troopers and challenged themselves in all sorts of ways - taking on chores such as bed making or washing up, pushing themselves to be brave on the assault course, zip wire and high swing as well as working as a team to help each other.  When I came to visit for the overnight shift, I was so impressed with their kindness to each other.  What an excellent start to the school year for our school leaders.
