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.

Recently, one of our Teaching Assistants, Mr Andrews decided to take part in the Tough Mudder challenge in aid of Help for Heroes.

This involved him running along a 12 mile obstacle course which included ice baths, electric shocks, barbed wire, tear gas and LOTS OF MUD! He completed the course in a very respectable 2.5 hours and we would like to congratulate Mr Andrews on this achievement!

On Thursday 10th September we had a cake sale in aid of Reubens Retreat as this would have been Reuben's 5th birthday.
We would like to thank all our pupils and parents who made a purchase and also we would like to thank Hyde Community College for their kindness and generosity in allowing us to sell our homemade cakes at their school.
With the proceeds of the cake sale (£62.83) we have bought a bin and a duvet from their gift list for the retreat in Glossop.

On the 22nd of April the Thomas Ashton School Football team had their first match of the year. The result did not go our way, but there were lots of positives to take from the game. The main positives, were the hard work and determination shown by the pupils.

All of the pupils and coaches would like to thank everyone for their support, and we look forward to our next game.

Well done everyone!

On Monday 9th February some of the children from Chestnut and Willow class visited the Sea Life Centre as part of our Keen to be Green topic. The children have spent the past few weeks learning about Global Warming and the effects it has on the Earth.
We have learnt about lots of ways that we can help save the Earth and help to protect the animals that live on both the land and in the oceans. We really enjoyed exploring Sea Life Centre and learning about the different sea creatures.
