On Friday 11th November pupils and staff from Van Zant group were invited to run a stall at Hyde Town Hall. The items for sale included lots of handmade poppies from felt and leaves. We also had some wreaths made from plastic as well as decorated picture frames and we managed to raise £25.

At 11.00am we joined members of the public for the 2 minute silence. It was a poignant moment and very powerful as the clock chimed.

In the reception area of Hyde Town Hall is a beautiful poppy display from pupils of Thomas Ashton School.

On 9th November Derek Fisher a 90 a veteran, came into school and met with the pupils to share his life experiences. He shared his experiences of fighting in Germany and Palestine And also his life experiences from the age of 17 to present date.

He talked about the photos he had brought along to share and also the badges which had been presented to him.

Whilst the KS3 football team have already played this season, Thomas Ashton School, in partnership with our sports providers Active Tameside, arranged a special football match for our KS2 pupils.
The match was played on the 18th October at the Medlock Leisure Centre against Parochial School, a mainstream primary school in Tameside.
The purpose for the football match was to give our younger pupils the opportunity to participate in something they would enjoy, at the same time promoting social skills, communication and teamwork.

In October 2015 Mr McBurnie Mrs Mac, Tyler Campbell and Shania Keegan embarked on a trip to Belgium to visit the battlefields. This was a huge success and was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Both Shania and Tyler then teamed up with two pupils from Hyde Community College who they met whilst on the Belgium trip and hosted a Remembrance Day event at Hyde Town Hall courtesy of Councillor Fitzpatrick. They were able to sell handmade poppies which pupils back at school had made and raised an incredible £48 for the British Legion.

Thomas Ashton School football team have been practising their football skills since the beginning of the year in September. The football team is made up of a mixture of Year 7 and Year 8 pupils.
We have always had a football team, and each year the players have worked hard and shown good skills and a great attitude.
And this year is no different! We were over the moon when the team managed to achieve their first win on 9th March 2016, narrowly beating Hyde Community College.

I am sure you are all familiar with the charity we support called ‘Reuben’s Retreat’. An author called Victoria Trundle has written a story on behalf of the charity called ‘Reu the Rainbow Gnu’.

We were very lucky to have the chance for Victoria to come into school on Tuesday afternoon and read her story to some of our pupils. And as a special surprise, Victoria actually brought Reu with her to meet the children!

Last half term, The JP's raised money for the British Heart Foundation, as part of our Enterprise Work.
We learned all about the work of the charity, as well as learning about the way our hearts work. We even cut up real animal hearts!
We hosted a BHF Coffee Morning on Friday 5th February. The school nurse came and gave advice on keeping our hearts healthy including taking blood pressure.
We had a 'keep the bike turning challenge' and we sold lots of Valentine and heart themed gifts.
We raised £132 - Thank you to everyone who supported us.

It has been a real privilege helping to host this year’s scarecrow competition. We were delighted that Rachel Summerscales from ‘Operation Farm’ allowed us to display the scarecrows from the four special schools:

Hawthorns, who had a large, scary crow; Oakdale, who had a very cute cat; Samuel Laycock, whose ‘Dracula’ was a big hit with a lot of selfies being taken!; and Thomas Ashton, who had an ‘Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Art’. They were all displayed in the orchard at Hyde Park on Sunday 18th October.

Two of our pupils, Shania Keegan and Tyler Campbell have had the most fantastic opportunity to travel to Belgium to see the World War I graves, together with Miss McDonough and Mr McBurnie.
Shania and Tyler have made lots of new friends on the trip and on Monday they visited the war cemetery. Tyler laid a cross on a grave with the surname Campbell and Shania also lay a cross on a grave with the surname Keegan.
