Well done to everyone who has been learning Mandarin! I know you have had a brilliant time.
The Young Engineers have started to build the car and have really stuck into the role of engineers. Tools at the ready, they have used the design plan to help get on with the long process of building the car.
This half term we have been very lucky to offer a Mandarin after school club, organised and delivered by Iris. The children have had lots of fun learning about Mandarin and I’m sure that you will be amazed by the children’s work.
When asked about the after school club, Autumn said that is was “very interesting” and Ellie said that it was “fun to learn a different language”.
Thank you so much for providing the children with this fantastic opportunity, Iris!
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
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 Key Stage Two dance group performed at the South Tyneside Dance Festival tonight and there can only be one word to describe them, Wow!
As always they behaved impeccably and made us so proud, well done!
The Young Engineers club which meets every Thursday evening has just two more sessions before the final race day on Newcastle quayside.
