Marsden 2022 - 2023

Mrs Swire


 Welcome to Class Marsden 2021-2022! 

'I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my eye upon you'.

                                                                        Psalm 32:8


This year, our class is made up of 20 Year 3 children and 10 Year 4 children.  We are taught by Mrs Swire and Mrs Barnes (Year 4 Maths and Science) and supported by Mrs Hanif, Mrs Hales, Mr Bowie and Mrs Kinsella. 

Our school curriculum is very exciting, and each half term we aim to share some of our learning with you on our class page. Just scroll down the page to see more. 

Key Information

Physical Education: We have a one hour swimming lesson every Wednesday and a one hour PE lesson on Tuesday. Children come to school in their kit on PE days. 

Reading Books: Our reading book changing days are: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  If your child has read at home and their reading record book is signed, they will receive a new book if they have placed it in the 'Books that need changing' basket in class. Please ensure they bring their reading book to school everyday

Library: Our library day is Tuesday.

African Dance and Drumming 


What an amazing couple of days we had with Casper, learning an African dance and how to play the drums.  We learn't lots of information about Ivory Coast too.

Art - Printing


Our art topic this half term is printing and we linked it to our History topic - The Stone Age.  After exploring with various prints, we created our own and added it to the class collaboration.
