On Tuesday 6th October, we were lucky enough to receive FREE tickets to go to Cineworld in Ashton, to watch the Key Stage 3 edition of ‘Ten Pieces’.

It featured the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra playing some amazing classical music and a host of famous people, such as Christopher Eccleston, explaining the music to us using graphics, animation and film.

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.
