Easter Bonnet Parade 

Well done to all who made their amazing bonnets and helped make the parade a special occasion. For some younger children it was their first parade - next year we can hopefully have the parents back to join in with the fun in the sun too. For Year 6 it was their last Marsh Green Easter Bonnet Parade.

Darwin's Finches

 

Today we had fun pretending to be the finches (birds) Darwin discovered on the Galapagos Islands - did you know that these birds' beaks evolved over time to suit the food available on their island?

REMEMBERING THOSE WHO MADE THE GREATEST SACRIFICE 

 

 

Today the children commemorated those who gave their lives for us by observing a two minutes silence at 11am.  The children were very respectful of this tradition.  We have written our own inspirational speeches to tell people war is not the answer as well as make our own poppies.

She sells sea shells

on the sea shore.”

 

The tongue twister, "She sells seashells by the seashore," is based on a song written by Terry Sullivan. It's thought the song is about a real seashell seller named Mary Anning (1799 – 1847). Mary Anning was more than a seashell seller.

 

Mary Anning was a pioneering palaeontologist and fossil collector. Her lifetime was a constellation of firsts.

Mary Anning was born in 1799 in Lyme Regis, in the southwest English county of Dorset. Lyme Regis is now part of what is now called the Jurassic Coast, and discoveries are still being made to this day.

 There are so many festivals and events happening this half term - Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas!

 

All of our work and discoveries will appear here. 

What a busy half term !

 

We have had a really busy half term as you can see from our web pages.  We have settled right back into school life at Marsh Green and are making really pleasing progress.   We are hard working and enthusiastic learners - we are showing the qualities and expectations of Year 6.

Black History Month

 

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude - Maya Angelou 

 

 

This month is Black History Month and as a class we discussed the qualities we want to see in an inspirational person.  We even went home and began our own research and art work!  

Caged Bird

BY MAYA ANGELOU

A free bird leaps

on the back of the wind   

and floats downstream   

till the current ends

and dips his wing

in the orange sun rays

and dares to claim the sky.

 

But a bird that stalks

down his narrow cage

can seldom see through

his bars of rage

his wings are clipped and   

his feet are tied

so he opens his throat to sing.

 

The caged bird sings   

with a fearful trill   

of things unknown   

but longed for still   

and his tune is heard   

on the distant hill   

for the caged bird   

sings of freedom.
