So Year 5 2015-16 is completed and I can’t believe I’ve finished my first year at Marlfields.  We’ve had some amazing experiences and worked hard. I am so proud of you all. You are an amazing group of children and I’m so excited and privileged to be teaching you again next year. Thank you so much for all the lovely gifts, cards and wishes. I promise I’m not crying reading them all! Have a fabulous holiday!

Sports Day

On Thursday 7th July, Marlfields Primary Academy had their Sports Day. Key Stage 1 did theirs in the morning and Key Stage 2 in the afternoon. Everyone had a great time and some of the races were very close! We would like to thank Multiflex for their commitment and help to make sports more accessible to us.

Year 5’s Enterprise Week

During our Enterprise week, we asked children to choose which football team they thought would win the Euro 2016 tournament. They could also buy a raffle ticket to win a Euro 2016 football. Children decorated gingerbread men in their favourite football team’s strip and we also made different flavoured slushies. We’ve had a great week and made quite a bit of money.

Empty Classroom Day – Geocaching

On Friday, Year 5 went geocaching around Astbury Mere. We used the geocaching app to find the approximate location. Then using the clues, we hunted high and low for the caches. Mrs Perry became a real expert at finding them. One highlight was meeting a mummy duck and her ducklings. We had a great morning and several of us are keen to go geocaching with our parents.

The last day of the experiment.

Our final day has arrived! We were required to count how many plants were alive. There were 22 plants from the red packet seeds and 29 blue packet plants still alive. We have looked at all the data we have collected and there doesn’t seem to be a clear distinction between the two sets of plants. We’re now excited about finding out the results!
