Our Nursery at Ash End Farm

Friday, 27 May 2016

The day went like this: A quick play in the park,

meet the birds of prey, lunch in the barn.

After lunch feed the goats, hold a chick,

find an egg, feed the lamb.

Another play and a bounce.

Ponies and horses,

coach and sleep.
A big thank you to all of the parents for their help.

The Wedding of the Year

Wednesday, 18 November 2015

Our Reception and Nursery pupils went along to St Giles Church today to find out what a wedding ceremony is all about. We walked down to the church on what was a very windy morning but thankfully it stayed dry for our walk there and back. The information and ceremony is part of the Early Years topic “It’s Good to be Me” where the children look at different religions and getting married in a Christian church is a part of the topic.
A big thank you to the many helpers who walked with us down to the church and to our Vicar, Andrew Gandon for explaining it to all the children.

Aaron’s Excellent News!

Tuesday, 3 March 2015

We know its been a while since we gave you news on Aaron but we are all so delighted we knew you would want us to share this with you.

The Panton family would like you to know that Aaron received the news that we have all been hoping and praying for – he has been given the “all clear.” The treatment in the USA, that you all so kindly contributed to has been a complete success and there is no trace of the illness left.

The family again want to pass on their heartfelt thanks and gratitude – what a wonderful gift you have all given.

“A big thank you goes out to all the pupils, teachers, families and friends of Wheelwright Lane School. As you’re all aware during the last school term, as a family, we had to take Aaron to America for Proton Beam Therapy.

While we were out in America we were very touched to hear that you were very busy fundraising for Aaron with many events going on over the weeks and many kind donations from yourselves and local businesses.

As a family we want to express our appreciation for everyone’s generosity and support. With all the hard work and fundraising, you have helped support us with financial costs incurred. A donation of £700 will also go to Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital to help other children like Aaron.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks. We will never be able to thank you all so much. It has been over-whelming to hear what you all have done for us-it will never be forgotten.

Thank you all for your kind support towards Aaron.”

Michelle, Damion, Haydn and Aaron

Aaron back to school

Wednesday, 16 October 2013

We are so pleased to have Aaron back with us and settling down to normality in Year 3. His friends missed him while he was away and are now making up for lost time. He is playing happily on the playground and working hard in his lessons. It is good to see the family back safe and sound.
As you know last Summer Term, staff, parents and pupils were involved in a variety of fundraising events to raise funds to support the family during Aaron’s Proton Radiotherapy Treatment, only available in the U.S.A.
Thanks to everyone’s commitment and hard work we managed to raise a total of £4049.88. Well done!
The funds have been presented to Aaron’s family and we hope that the amount raised will be of help to fund a proportion of the overall costs incurred while Aaron was receiving his treatment.
Out of the fundraising amount, the family have donated £700 towards the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, where Aaron usually receives his medical care and will continue to do so now he is back.
On behalf of everyone, we wish the family all the best for the future and continue to keep them in our thoughts and prayers

Aaron’s classmate selling the cakes.

Yesterday the fantastic fundraising continued for Aaron, one of his friends had the idea of writing to local cake stores to ask if they would donate cakes. Both “The Cake Shop” and “Harry’s” donated fabulous cakes, the sale of which raised an amazing £125.  It just shows how generous people can be when approached, we are really proud of the continuing support from Aarons classmates. Well done.

Hello everyone today July the 2nd was my last treatment at the UF hospital. I was very excited and also a bit sad that it was my last day as everyone has been really nice to me.

To celebrate the end of my treatment I got to ring the big bell/chimes which was fun and everyone cheered and clapped.

Had my photo taken with Dr Danny and a soft toy alligator that they gave me to remember them.

Missing you all but will soon be back at school
