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!
Wow, what an amazing show the Year 6 put on for their final Marsden production. It was an emotional rollercoaster with tears, laughter and most importantly fond memories.
A special congratulations go to Sarah-Ann on earning Mrs O’Brien’s last ever Deputy Head’s Award and Nicholas on earning the prestigious Head Teacher’s Award.
Congratulations Year 6, you were fantastic!
Today, Year Six had a visit from Show Racism the Red card, a charity organisation who aim to improve understanding of racism and prejudice. The morning was very informative and the children found out lots about acceptable and unacceptable words to use surrounding race and culture.
In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to be put through our paces by Gary Bennet (ex Sunderland AFC player) who led us in a football fitness session.
Here are the songs for Year 6 to listen ready for their performance.
Year Six have had a busy week taking their Sats.
The class have worked hard with Mrs Watson, Mrs Maddison and Mr O’Brien, supported by Mrs Small and staff from the school to prepare for these important benchmark tests.
During the week, our cook John has prepared some lovely cooked breakfasts for the children each day to help set them up for their tests- ‘an army marches on it’s stomach’. Thank you John.
What better way to finish the week with a French breakfast or ‘Petit dejeuner’.
‘The Pattisserie’, owned by Mrs Lee, did not disappoint us and the children enthusiastically tucked into croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin, tresses, banana and maple syrup bread, fresh fruit, jams, chocolate, caramel and maple sauces. The children also had juice and Chocolat Chaud (Hot Chocolate) to accompany their breakfast.
Every piece of food was eaten and there was no waste at all – Year Six like their food- especially when it was a good at this .
This morning, Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to Cleadon Academy to take part in their annual careers fair. The children were able to meet with adults from all different professions and discuss what their jobs entail. They also got to try out equipment, tools and uniforms to try out what it might be like to work in areas such as: the emergency services, law, building and architecture, medicine and dentistry, sport and fitness, science and pharmaceuticals. I hope the children came away inspired about their futures!
On Wednesday 14th March, Year Six visited Safety works in Newcastle to learn about being safe when out on the streets.
They had a super time with really well-informed and engaging people who took them through scenarios to learn how to keep safe when in the home, using the Metro, shopping with friends and playing in the park. The children took part very enthusiastically and were supported by staff and parent helpers.
Acting out an arrest.
Shop keepers are usually helpful so don’t take advantage!
Trying out the ‘Recovery Position’
We know how to stay safe!
