Askwith Phone Box Project: Platinum Jubilee 



To mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June 2022, Class 1 decorated the phone box in Askwith using collaged Union Jacks, crowns and bunting.

DT Challenge - Community Judges!



The children worked hard on their DT Challenge: to build a structure for an egg! We were lucky to have two special judges from the community - Andrea and her granddaughter. The children's creations were so fantastic that Andrea and her granddaughter found judging the competition really difficult! 

Fruit Donations to Local Farmers








Years 1 and 2 decided that their leftover fruit shouldn't go to waste, so they decided to donate any fruit to the local farmers for their animals to eat. Mr and Mrs Dibb said "Thank you to Year 1 and Year 2 for all the fruit and vegetables - the hens absolutely loved them!". 

Askwith Tree Planting: Tuesday 29th March 2022

The children had a wonderful time planting the trees! Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered their time and expertise, including Mrs Crabtree for her beautiful photos.
