Today we say goodbye to Jack and Sophie as they begin their exciting adventure to Ireland. We know they’ll make lots of new friends but we hope they stay in touch with their Marsden family.
We were very excited to have some special visitors in our classroom on Monday…
Key Stage One had a brilliant morning doing their sponsored ‘Move a Mile!’
We ran, skipped, hopped, crawled and danced our way around the track.
We were exhausted once we had finished!
We have had a special day, celebrating the end of our ‘Grace Darling’ topic in Year One.
We started the day with our amazing class assembly.
We then had a special Grace Darling quiz, where we had four winning teams!
After that, we worked together to build our own lighthouses. This was very tricky!
This afternoon we walked along the coast to Souter Lighthouse. We looked at perspective and talked about the horizon. Then we produced our own sketches of the lighthouse.
Finally, we ended our day in Laura’s park.
What an amazing day it has been!
Well done to Year One who were amazing in their class assembly.
The children have had a brilliant time learning about Grace Darling and were so proud to show her story to the rest of the school.
Anais: I loved being Grace Darling because I had lots of lines to say and I had loads of fun.
Oliver: It was awesome! I loved being a storyteller and I loved learning my words!
Blossom: It was brilliant because it was really fun. I thought it was really good, especially when my Mam cried!
Louie: It was good. I liked singing.
As a celebration of our Fairy Tales topic, Year One have designed, created and evaluated their own houses today.
We used a range of biscuits and had to work as a team to build our houses.
Which biscuit do you think is the strongest?
Year One have had a brilliant morning at the KS1 Athletics Festival. We participated in a range of activities including: running, jumping, throwing and catching. We definitely worked up an appetite and couldn’t wait to get back to school for our dinner!
Year One have had a fantastic day, celebrating World Book Day 2019! All of the children looked amazing, dressed as their favourite book character and we had lots of fun looking at each other’s costumes. We also designed our own book covers, shared stories with our Year Five buddies and made bunting for our community library.
We wish every day was World Book Day!
Year One had a very important job to do as part of their science work this week.
The Three Little Pigs roof has been letting in lots of water and they wanted to know which material would keep the water out!
Year One were happy to help and carried out an experiment to find out which materials are waterproof.
We decided that the most waterproof material was plastic!
