Shhh, geniuses at work.
Stay tuned next week to see the finished masterpieces!
Today saw yet another educational visit for Year Six – this time to the Beacon of Light for the Bring it On event. The event featured displays from many of the leading companies that specialise in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), giving our children a fantastic insight into what it would be like to have a career in one of these industries.
Yesterday, Year 5 took part in South Tyneside’s hockey tournament. All of the children showed excellent teamwork and superb positive attitudes throughout the morning. Even though we didn’t win, we had great fun and enjoyed learning new hockey skills.
Today, Year Six visited Nissan to take part in their Monozukuri Caravan workshop. The children took part in lots of hands-on activities to learn about car manufacturing and all had roles in a Lego production line. We also visited the workshop to watch the robots in action and one had a spooky message for Lucy (see photos). Our fantastic day was topped off with delicious double chocolate cookies and bags of goodies to take away! Congratulations to India and Emily, who were runners-up in the art competition, and to Oscar S who was the overall winner!
On Monday, the Year 6 children visited South Shields Community Fire Station to lean about Reducing Accidents at Play (RAP). We came away with lots of valuable information about keeping ourselves safe and had so much fun in the process!
Here is the Powerpoint that was shown at the Leavers’ Assembly. What cuties they were!
The staff at Marsden wanted to prepare a little surprise for Year 6. We hope they enjoyed our sketch and wanted to give you another chance to watch our “sensational” singing!
