As we celebrate this Easter, here are a few poems for reflection. Children at Astbury school led our Easter worship from Palm Sunday through to the resurrection of Jesus. He is risen, alleluia.

Thank you to Congleton Councilors who visited Class Jacob at Astbury St Mary's School. The children enjoyed learning about gender stereotypes and how to challenge these in a respectful way. The session opened up some interesting and engaging discussion and inspired pupils just ahead of International Women's Day on the 8th March.

Children in Year 5 and 6 had a visit from Congleton Fire Station The children had a great time learning about fire safety, had a go in the smoke tent, looked through a thermal imaging camera and even sat in the cab of the engine! Thanks to the fire brigade for this great community work.

Astbury School celebrated World Book Day. Families enjoyed some reading time together, children and staff dressed as book characters and spent the day immersed in reading. There was an interactive quiz, a lesson with an illustrator, a live lesson with the poet Michael Rosen - which had lots of children chuckling - and book activities in all classrooms. Children in Astbury Acorns Pre-School made their own books and told their stories - including the front cover and the blurb!

Children at Astbury School were delighted to receive a visit from Bishop Mark from Chester Cathedral. He visited each classroom and spent time answering the very curious questions asked by the children! In Class Mary, he was shown some of the Lent reflection resources.

Astbury School is so proud of these amazing swimmers! They swam 105 lengths in the Congleton Rotary swimathon raising money for school and the rotary charities. With only five in the team, they had to work even harder to reach their desired target of 100 lengths. They showed great perseverance, determination and as always, fabulous teamwork. Well done team Astbury!

Astbury children working as scientists - experimenting which shapes were good for parachutes and increased air resistance to prevent the characters from falling to the floor too quickly. The children were developing scientific skills, using scientific vocabulary and challenging their thinking.

Children in Class Noah were historians; asking questions, exploring and discussing artefacts - toys from the past. They used these items as sources of evidence and recorded their findings. All great preparation for a visit to Lego Land to explore more toys!

Astbury children in years three and four competed in the Indoor Athletics at Congleton High School. The children worked hard and were excited to take part and represent Astbury School. We're so proud of all of them - overcoming nerves and trying their best!

Children in Class Mary are really happy to have their sundial replaced in the outdoor area. Learning to read Roman numerals, telling the time and understanding the relationship between the Earth and the Sun are some of the learning opportunities for the children. Thank you Mr H for securing it in place!

Children in years five and six took part in the Indoor Athletics at Congleton High School. The team worked so hard, competed fiercely, supported each other and represented Astbury School so well. As a small school, a special shout out to the three boys who took part in each event, doubled up in field events and ran twice in races requiring four participants - their determination and commitment echoed our school vision of children growing in character and courage.

Astbury children in the Eaton Bank Academy dance festival. They committed to rehearsals and then danced for two nights - they really rocked those instruments in the School of Rock! Such a great experience being on a stage in front of a live audience. Conquering fears and developing life skills.

Busy at the Astbury School Christmas Fair. Lots of work in preparation, but lots of fun for our families! Thank you to everyone who helped, donated and came to support. We raised £1000 for our children. This fantastic amount will help subsidise the cost of coaches and purchase enrichment resources and activities.
