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!
On Monday 29th October, Year Six took part in a Humanities Walk into Whitburn as part of their History, Geography and RE studies. They looked at buildings in Whitburn that were in place before and during The Second World War, those which had changed function and at some sites where land had been changed specially for the demands of the war. One such place was the site of the old football ground on Lizard Lane which now has allotments and part of the cemetery on.
The children have also been learning about the features and functions of Churches and had the opportunity to visit our local Parish Church. This helped them to find out about church history- myths and truths. Why not ask your child what they found out? It was very interesting as the whole class paid attention and were extremely well-behaved during the visit. Well done Year Six.
Today, Year Six were lucky enough to take part in the Monozukuri Caravan event at Nissan. The children competed in a Lego production line competition, raced model F1 cars, tried their hand at using factory tools and found out lots about the car manufacturing industry. I’m sure we have one or two future engineers and technicians in the making! Prior to the event, the children were asked to design a new logo for the event and the well-deserved winners were Ella and Finlay. Runners up were Ruby and Emily M. Two lucky children also received a very special message from a Nissan robot! All children were rewarded for excellent participation with delicious cookies and a goodie bag! Here’s our fantastic day in pictures ……
Today Year Six experienced life as evacuees, sent away to work at Beamish Home Farm. We took part in workshops about life in the Home Guard and what happened during ‘The Blackout’. The children also had great fun exploring the other areas of the museum and were glad to return home to their own homes at the end of the day! A great time had by all!
Marsden’s Young Engineers have started their work this year by dismantling last year’s car- and what a keen lot we have too!
This week some of last year’s group with our current team visited the ‘Bring it On’ Science and engineering event at the newly opened Beacon of Light School in Sunderland.
