We had a lovely ‘christmassy’ morning finishing our calendars and making Christmas cards. We wish all a very lovely Christmas and a relaxing break.
On Friday Year 5, were treated to a special visit from two lovely ladies from the space agency. They came to talk to us about Mars and let us do experiments to see which soil was most like soil from Mars. We learnt new scientific skills like filtering, measuring
and using litmus paper to see which sand contained acid.

We tested if it let water through quickly,if it had salt and if it was acidic.After that we competed our results
Yesterday, Year 5 had a visit from John, a fireman from Cheshire Fire and Safety, to talk to us about keeping safe and demonstrate just how quickly a fire can start. We learnt how important it is to keep the floors clear, keeping a fire action plan and why it’s so vital to have a fire safety plan. Then we went onto the playground to see what smoke does when we went into a smoke tent.
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!
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.
On Tuesday, Year 5 were lucky to be invited to a preview performance of Hairspray at Eaton Bank. We loved all the singing and dancing. There was an amazing amount of talent and humour. Well done Eaton Bank!
