Spring Term 2019

Shelley Swire (Boss) on: Class Marsden Term by Term

This is a busy and very enjoyable term in school. Let's see what we have been up to and what we have to look forward to! 

Spelling: We have completed the first round of the Spelling Bee.  Sayf is the champion in our class for year 3.  We are looking forward the the second heat at the end of the month in our school clusters - we are hosting the second round here at St. Philip's!

Times tables: We are working hard on the timetables challenge. Zohra is taking her score serious and is working hard on her tables at home. She is currently top of the leader board on Times Tables Rock Stars!

Reading: Today, 7th March, is World Book Day and our theme was 'Bees'. We all dressed in black and yellow and spent the day working on a range of bee activities.  I think it is fair to say we all had a fabulous day! 

There are a number of children who are now working in the Bronze level for reading - well done to those - I hope to have a silver reader in our class soon! 

Physical: The children are all continuing to make good progress at the swimming pool - whilst we still have a long way to go to be swimming at the standard needed in primary school, we have already got some level one and two swimmers! We will keep working hard. 

Maths: We are trialing a new maths working wall in class - we have 30 Marsden maths monsters just waiting to get their explanations on the wall to show how great they are becoming at talking about their mathematical understanding. 

Science: Next week is National Science Week - we are looking at journeys! Our focus is plastic - we will look at what happens to the plastics we use and how we can try to help the environment by being mindful of how we use plastics in both school and at home. 

Charity: We are looking forward to Red Nose Day next week and we are working on our own enterprise projects where we hope to create and then sell bookmarks to raise money to help people living in poverty in other countries. 

I will check back in soon to keep you up-to-date!

Almost the end of the first half term!

Shelley Swire (Boss) on: Class Marsden Term by Term

I can not believe we are so close to the end of this half term.  What a busy time we have had! The children have settled well into the class routines and year 3 are enjoying being in the juniors.  We have learnt lots about Romans and the highlight of this week has been creating their own Roman catapult! We have seen some amazing homework projects sent into school - thank you to all for your support with this! Remember - reading remains a key priority for homework and we are really keeping an eye on the children who are not having the chance to read at home -this is something we really need parental support for. Also learning timetables is extremely important in Class Marsden - a little every day will support your child with this vital skill.

New term, big changes!

Shelley Swire (Boss) on: Class Marsden Term by Term

Hi All! Mrs Swire here! Well, I am looking forward to my new challenge this year: moving into Key Stage 2 from EYFS. During 'moving on' day, the children showed an excellent attitude to learning and if they continue with such drive, then I know we will achieve great things! 

This half term we are learning about the Romans. I am very excited about this topic! I have prepared a list of tasks to complete for homework which I hope parents, friends and carers will enjoy supporting their child with at home. 

Here's to a fantastic year!

Today, we had a visit from Mark, a local man who loves to play his guitar as a hobby. He came in to play a Beatles' song called 'Blackbird.' A song Class Marsden have been learning, linked to their city topic of Liverpool.  Mark was amazing and so were Class Marsden as they sang along with him!

Class Marsden opened up their classroom again this week to share work created in their 'City' topic with parents in their latest class gallery.  The children loved sharing their projects with each other and the parents.  Thank you to all who came! 


We are loving using our new glokenspiels which were bought by the PTA team.  We have expored th

What a wonderful turn out we had today for our first class gallery where we proudly showed off the work carried out in our Roman topic!  The children loved telling the adults all about the items they had created -  I am extremely proud of them all! 

The Invasion of Class Marsden!

On Thursday 13th September, the children in class had a huge shock when they went into class after lunch! Mrs Barnes and the whole of class Towneley had invaded our room AND they were using our things! We were not at all pleased and it took us quite some time to encourage them all to leave! Now we almost know how it must have felt when the Romans invaded! 

Today in art, the children were asked to draw a Roman Legionnaire. The work they created was outstanding! I am so proud of them all!

Class Marsden are working very hard today - they are getting creative and planning and designing the class reading area!  Only one child can be the overall winner! I wonder who that will be? 

We really enjoyed playing Snakes and Ladders during 'Moving On' day.  We got to work with new people.  

We enjoyed voting for our favourite book.  The only thing we could use was the blurb! The winning book was 'There is a werewolf in my Tent.' By Pamela Butchart. We are excited to read it!   

Finding out where we are from!
