Science in Year 1

Yesterday, the children observed and learnt all about different types of animals and how we classify them. The children learnt all about mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. We went on a walk around the school grounds to see what animals we could spot. We then came back to class and put them in the correct category. We saw so many different types of animals!

A great morning at Astbury Mere

Today Year 5 learnt how to kayak. We played games like Colour Domination where you had to tap the back of your opponents kayak 3 times. It was tricky when we had to line up and hold each others’ kayaks. Some children over came their initial fear and built up quite a speed! Alice was really proud of herself because she didn’t think she could do it but by the end of the session she was a whizz!

Quidditch at Marlfields

Today at Marlfields we had our second Quidditch tournament. The children were amazing and all played their very best. The Mighty Marlfields spirit was certainly with us today.

The children then waited eagerly to find the results and who were the ultimate winners.

Well done to the Yellow team who scored the most points.

Stable Structures

Today, Year 1 worked as a team to create their own stable structures following a brief. The structures needed to have a door, a ramp, and they needed to be able to hold a toy car. The children worked extremely hard to create their toy garages using a variety of different skills.
