An Emotional Day of Goodbyes

Yesterday was a very emotional day of goodbyes. I’ve had the pleasure of watching your children grow and flourish over the past two years (some even less) they are lovely children who all have the potential for achieving great things.

I hope that the children and parents keep in touch. I also would like to thank everyone for all of the gorgeous and extremely thoughtful gifts.#dreambelieveachieve

Our Final Day in Year One

Well that is it… our time in Year One has come to an end! We have had such a lovely last day!

Just a quick message from me. I just want to say how much I have enjoyed teaching your children this year and watching them grow and progress across the year. It has been an absolute pleasure and I will miss every one of them!

Have a lovely, safe summer.

Year 5 had an illuminating experience when they went to Daven to learn about the science of fireworks.


Gruff Learning

Today Nursery went on an exciting visit.

We went to Gruff Learning where we saw chickens, goats and an alpaca. We were able to feed the chickens and the goats and listen to the sounds they made.

We had lots of fun!

Yellow Day for East Cheshire Hospice

Reception Class organised a whole school ‘Yellow Day’ to help raise money for East Cheshire Hospice.

The children could come into school dressed in yellow clothes.  Also, if they wanted to they could plant a sunflower seed to take home to grow.

In the afternoon, the children had a special visitor come to see them – “Sunny The Dog”.

Thank to everyone who donated money.

Forest School Week

This week has been ‘Forest School Week’. The aim of the week was to introduce all of the school to different aspects of the forest school style of learning and to raise money to develop of forest area. We also took the opportunity to complete some house team based activities.

On Monday, the whole school split off into their house teams in the afternoon. They took part in 4 different activities across the course of the afternoon. Each team worked on a carousel of activities, one completing a natural activity in the woods, one decorating stones, one creating their team flag for sports day and one classroom activity about the animal they sponsor in their house teams.

The children were also set other challenges across the week. These included; creating a nature shoe box, den building, a themed ‘Thumbs Up Thursday’ which included creating natural photo frames and a natural scavenger hunt in some classes.


Nature Shoe Boxes


This week at Marlfields it has been Forest School week. Today we designed and created nature shoe boxes. We worked in our teams (Polar Bear, Snow leopard, Panda and Orangutan) to create the habitat of our adopted animals. Can you tell which habitat belongs to which animal?
