Welcome to Class Marsden
We are a mixed Year 3/4 class of 29 taught by Mrs Swire and supported by Mrs Mahmood & Mr Ashworth.
We hope you enjoy seeing the things we get up to in our class!
15.11.19 Anti-Bullying Week
We have learnt lots today about being responsible for making the changes we need to put a stop to bullying. We worked together to make these super posters and enjoyed creating a video to share in school.
8.11.2019 Friday Friends
Come and see what we got up to on our first Friday Friends of the year! Our theme was Ancient Greece and we all enjoyed drawing the Minotaur from Theseus and the Minotaur!
17.10.2019 Titanic Parent Gallery
We enjoyed inviting parents in to our class today to look at some of our learning that has taken place both in class and at home through our Titanic, local history study topic.
26.9.2019 Gazegill Farm
We had an amazing day at Gazegill Farm. Gazegill is a working farm and the children saw the farmers hard at work. During the day they got to feed the animals, make ice cream, see where the cows are milked and hunt for mini bugs. We learnt about the wind-turbine that provides electricity to the farm too - this linked in with our science topic.
5.9.19 Art Day
We had a great day learning art techniques today. We studied the work by a local artist known as Rob Edmondson. After we had explored a range of drawing and painting skills, we created our own 'Autumn Tree' art work. Some of this work is on display in the school hall!
Class Marsden Term by Term
Shelley Swire (Boss) on: Class Marsden Term by Term
Our topic this half term is Ancient Greece. We are enjoying finding out about life in Ancient Greece through research in History, reading 'Myths' in English and creating clay pots in art. We spent a lot of time studying timelines this week - it is very hard to understand where something that happened 1000's of year ago fits on our timeline but Class Marsden are getting there!
We have spent time on Anti-Bullying week this week. We decided to make a video to share with people so we can help change the way we are with each other. The video will hopefully appear on the web page soon.
Pop back next week to see what else we have been up to!
Design & Technology - November 2019
We made some amazing lighthouses in DT. After some research, planning and exploring, the children used their knowledge of circuits to create these wonderful lighthouses that included a switch to ensure they could turn their lighthouse on and off.
19.9.2019 First Recorder Lesson
We really enjoyed our first recorder lesson today!
We always make the most of dry days and take PE outdoors! When we can't, we work in the school hall. We are really mastering the chest past and defending skills!
6.9.2019 Bright Spark Science
What a super day of learning we had today linked to our topic of electricity. We did a lot of collaborative learning when creating circuits, we learnt all about safe electricity (batteries) and about the jobs people have linked to electricity.
