This week we were challenged to build the Statue of Liberty!
Here are our quick builds.
On Thursday 27th September the girls football team took part in a tournament at Boldon School.
Here is the match report:
Y6: Alania, Georgie, Ruby, Aleyna and Erin
Y5: Daisy, Lyra, Autumn and Ebony
First we played Harton A; unfortunately we lost 1:0. We were very unlucky to lose this match but we played our best and that is all you can do. Daisy actually scored but this goal did not count as the referee didn’t see it and Alania was very close to make it an equaliser!
The second match against St Oswald’s Hebburn saw Daisy take the first goal, with the ball smashing off the goal post and being reflected in by the other team. Great defending and goal keeping by our team, kept a clean sheet and Daisy kicked home another two goals, earning a hat trick on her first play for the Marsden team. We all agreed she should get Player of the Match for this round of the tournament…Well Done Daisy!
Everyone had a great afternoon, enjoyed the game and being part of the team. We can’t wait until the next round in Novemeber.
The children have been having great time in Mandarin club with Iris! This week they were looking at colours and numbers.
The Young Engineers club which meets every Thursday evening has just two more sessions before the final race day on Newcastle quayside.
Next week Thursday 21st and the week after Thursday 28th will last until 5 pm as the bodywork will need to be completed and then test driving will take place.
The main chassis is ready and the cardboard template for the correx bodywork has been fitted so now we have to cut out the correx and attach it to the car prior to test driving it on the MUGA on Thursday 28th.
The race day arrangements are:
Please treat this timetable as flexible, thank you.
The children are looking forward to this, so we need to complete the car next time.
This week the children were challenged to build their own Roman arch, some developed their arches into bridges.
Here are their creations!
At science club this week Year 3 and 4 have been learning about acids and alkalines. The children had to test different liquids to see if they changed colour. If the liquid changed to red it was an acid, if it went green it was neutral and if it went purple it was an alkaline.
We had a great time playing investigating liquids and are looking forward to next week!
At computer club, Year 3 and 4 were asked to develop their own computer game.
The children thought carefully about the images and scenery they would need for their game. Some went along the Christmas theme and other chose other topics such as food.
To make their games more fun, they invented their own scoring system so that if their character was to catch some items they would earn points but other items would take points away.
We had a great time playing the finished games.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in hula hooping this term. On Thursday afternoon you all took part in an amazing Christmas performance! Everybody really enjoyed watching the new skills you have learnt. We look forward to your next performance. Keep up your hard work!
