As always, we follow The Ashwood way at Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary, taking on new challenges and taking risks. Here are a few highlights of what we have been up to in dance, PE and sporting activities.
This term we join forces with The Royal Opera house for our Y1s and Y3s to work with professional dancers to create their very own version of Alice in Wonderland. Some of our children want to be professional dancers and ballerinas as a career when they are older so this is a dream come true for them to work with professional dancers on their movements!
The whole school joined in with our dance along with Dame Darcey Busell, busting some moves!
The children love taking part in lunch time zumba and mini disco with me on the yard. We love to keep fit and healthy and have lots of fun doing so!
Keep on running!
After our assembly with 80 year old Marathon runner Ray Matthews, we were inspired as a school to take on running. We took part as a school in the mile Fun run at Clifton park. We even got medals for our participation!
Y2s represented Ashwood in the Colour run in aid of Bluebell wood hospice. They raised a lot of money for the charity, along with other schools in WPT and had lots of fun running. They returned back to school covered in paint with the biggest smiles on their faces!
Working with Rotherham United Community sports Trust
Rotherham United organised a full day of sport for KS1 and KS2 pupils. The children took part in a range of different sporting events to increase their stamina and fitness. This was held at Parkgate Astro. The children all loved the activities.
Extra Curricular Clubs
As ever, there has been 100% take up for our after school clubs. This year this has ranged from Disney dance, karate, football coaching, street dance and gymnastics. 154 pupils took part in the Autumn term in extra curricular clubs and 182 pupils took part in the extra curricular clubs in the Spring term.
Representing Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary in competitions
This year we are working towards our Gold in School sports Games and have participated in lots of sporting opportunities. This has ranged from hockey, gymnastics festivals, athletics, boccia and even curling.
Multi Use Games Area (MUGA)
Our new MUGA remains as popular as ever with the children taking part in organised activities at lunch time and playtime.
