This morning, PSCO Holly Madsen visited Year 6 to teach us about how to keep ourselves safe online. We found out all about age limits for apps, negative and positive aspects of the internet and how we can use privacy settings to protect personal information. Holly also spoke to use about consequences for making inappropriate content and what to do if we come across it. We all learned so much!
You can listen to the songs from the Upper Key Stage 2 Christmas Show of “Cinderella & Rockerfella”
This afternoon Y5 and Y6 completed their walk to Cornthwaite Park and even managed to squeeze in some time to play in the park before returning to school.
What a wonderful, yet wet, day Year 6 have had on their visit to Beamish today. The children took great efforts to look the part and dressed just like 1940s evacuees. Once our evacuees has arrived at Home farm, they learned all about the types of jobs they’d be expected to do. We wrote letters home to our family in the city and then we were put through our paces as new Home Guard recruits.
After lunch, we took time to explore all of the interesting areas of Beamish and tried out travelling on coach, tram and steam engine!
Congratulations to Year Six who received their certificates and badges after a tough week of cycling. They faced every different type of bad weather imaginable but battled through with smiles on their faces! We are very proud!
At the beginning of the school year, it is our tradition that the Year 6 children are given a chance to be elected for House Captain and Vice Captain.
Competition was tough this year, with a massive effort being put into their speeches. All of the children in KS2 were asked to vote and the winners were:
Captain Vice Captain
Red Lucas Jessica
Green Maisie-Grace Jacob
Yellow Grace Jace
Blue Frederico Skye
Year 6 wanted to share their assembly with you as we could not invite parents and children into the hall.
We hope you enjoy! 🙂
Here are our final photos from our last day at Marsden. We are so lucky to have taught such wonderful children and we hope they have made special friendships that will last a lifetime. We loved catching up with Harry over the fence at lunchtime!
Mrs Potter, Mrs Maddison and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for the lovely cards, gifts and messages. We will truly miss each and every one of you!
EYFS children were very upset that the Year 6 children weren’t able to have a traditional end of year celebration. So they put their thinking caps on and teamed up together to make a card and keepsake for every child in Y6.
We hope you love your bags and we wish you well in your new school.
We will miss you! Love EYFS x
