Welcome Lexi 1

The children at Ashington CE Primary School enjoyed a Green Day on Thursday 7th April 2022. The day was organised by Sienna, Magenta, Sophie and Jasmine, four passionate Eco Warriors in Year 5 supported by the school’s Outdoor Learning Lead, Miss Martlew.

The four girls had their eco passion ignited by a Rainforest topic in Year Four and ever since have eagerly encouraged others, staff included, to join them in driving for a more eco aware school, community and planet. Consequently, there was no need for the school staff to set up an eco-group; the girls would never have not let it happen; creating their own group with many other children eager to join.

The Green Day started with a whole school Eco Easter bonnet parade with winners from each class receiving an eco-notebook and pen and an Easter Egg. All hats were adorned with recycled decorations and had an Easter theme. The children clung to their hats in the wind but were full of smiles of pride in the beautiful spring sunshine as they paraded, each class in turn, in front of the whole school to cheerful applause.

The girls also set up a sponsored obstacle course and race, and an Easter Eco fact egg hunt for every class to take part in. Parents were asked to sponsor their children to take part in the race and the girls decided that under the current circumstances the money raised should go to support families in the Ukraine.

The whole school wore green clothes for the day as well as their eco bonnets. Younger children paired up with children from another class to find, read and answer all the eco related questions during the egg hunt. This was a very popular activity with children having fun and supporting each other whilst also learning lots of eco facts.

Year One children enjoyed the obstacle race so much many didn’t want to stop running when their turn came to an end!

The four girls have also led whole school assemblies and organised a book swap as part of their campaign to raise awareness and have many more ideas up their sleeves. The staff wait to see what’s suggested next!

Returning from a Long Lockdown

On returning to school after the Spring Term lockdown, all children and staff recorded on a leaf or petal something positive about their experience during that eight weeks.

We then made a whole school display from these to celebrate the positives.

A quarter of our children were in school during that time and all staff were on a rota. Three quarters of our children were learning from home. We all found many positive things to share about this time.

Year 2 out doing Forest Schools


A few photos, from a (social) distance...

Today Year Two had the best time at Forest School. Although we can't use our usual site, Mr Newland has transformed our wildlife area into a haven for the children.

They were making necklaces, 'fishing', den building, climbing and swinging from the rope swing and helping tend the fire and every child was joining in and beaming from ear to ear.
