Harvest Festival

We had a great afternoon visiting Whitburn Parish Church to celebrate our Harvest Festival. Mr O’Brien’s choir sang beautifully and all of our children made a special effort to join in with our Harvest hymns. Thank you to all of our fantastic readers, you were very brave to stand up and speak in front of such a large audience! We would also like to thank everyone for their kind donations of tinned foods, tea towels and biscuits. We will be donating our food parcels to ‘Hope and Hospitality’, South Tyneside.

Here are some photographs from our afternoon:

On Monday 15th May 2017 SAFC filmed year 5 in PE for their Youtube channel, promoting the league final match involving the under 23 team. We were lucky enough to meet three players from the team, who interacted with the children and taught them key attacking and defending skills. They even signed our SAFC t-shirts and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Whitburn Academy bring Christmas

This year we have started accessing Whitburn Church of England Academy to deliver some of our Music curriculum and also develop our instrument tuition. To develop this link even further, we welcomed members of the band into our school to hear some amazing instruments and help to get ready for Christmas.

I am sure you will agree, they filled our hall with some amazing music and have definitely got many children thinking about taking up an instrument next term.

Click the pictures to hear the band play.

Marsden has Talent 2016

This year, Marsden’s Got Talent really showed just how much talent we have got.

Each class had so many entries and the judges had a touch job deciding on our winners.

But, they knew they had to make a decision and hopefully Marsden will show what they are capable against Whitburn Primary.

Keep your fingers crossed!!
