Our year four and five children have the privilege of being coached by members of the Newcastle Falcons rugby team; a super experience for them over the next few Wednesdays, where the children will learn rugby skills, teamwork and have fun.
Y5 designed and built rockets based upon real life functional rockets. They needed to include build a rocket no taller than 1m, include a door and a detachable part to win the competition. Thank you to parents and grandparents from popping in and helping to create fantastic rockets!
Year 5 had an amazing morning at the Beacon of Light creating their own PE lessons.
A fantastic time had by all.
Here are the songs that Key Stage 2 need to practise.
I’m already looking forward to watching this production!
Marsden’s Young Engineers have started their work this year by dismantling last year’s car- and what a keen lot we have too!

Lucie was chosen as the winner as she has raised over £400 for charity by cutting her hair to donate to children undergoing cancer treatments. Well done!
We also celebrated the special talents of our engineering team, footballers, bikeability and the wonderful attendance from our whole school this year.
On Thursday 12th and Friday 13th July, the Year Six children attended their new secondary school to see what life there would be like in the next academic year.
Meanwhile, back at Marsden School, each class moved up for a taster of their new class. A lot of nervous and excited children came into school on Thursday morning but fears and worries were soon put at rest when they entered their future classrooms.
Year five talked about their successes of the past year and their hopes for the future; then they wrote a letter to Mrs Watson who will be their new teacher in Year Six.
Here they are hard at work composing the letter and trying to make a good impression. We are confident that they will do very well in the coming year.
