Home Learning in Reception...


We are so proud of how amazing all the children who have returned to school this term have been. We have also loved all the work the children learning at home have shared on Tapestry. Thank you so much to all of our children and families. 


From now on, home learning for those Reception children not in school will consist of the 'playful challenges' which will be posted here on the website. We hope they will give you ideas to inspire the children and if you would like to post photographs of what they have been up to on Tapestry, we would love to see them! Mrs Sands will continue to read chapters of The Enchanted Wood as well. 




Back in January we launched the ‘Ablaze Water Poetry Competition’. Lots of children from across the school entered their poem creations on the theme of water, so a huge ‘well done’ if you were motivated and got involved.

An amazing 566 poems were submitted to Ablaze from various schools around Bristol! The judges had a very tough job selecting which ones to publish, but after a lot of discussion, they finally picked 90.


Ashton Gate Primary School is proud and delighted to announce that 8 poems were selected (6 from KS2 and 2 from Early Years and KS1). All the staff at Ashton Gate are very proud of our talented poets and can’t wait to receive the book with the published poems! Many congratulations to our ‘soon to be published’ poets. You can have a read of their fantastic poems below.
