Clay Teddy Bears

During Friday afternoon, we made our own clay teddy bear's to link with our theme.  We got our hands very mucky but we enjoyed moulding and shaping the clay.  Now we have to wait for our clay to dry out and then we are looking forward to putting them in the kiln.  After that, we are going to paint and glaze our bears!

Sainsbury's School Games County Finals

Date: 11th Jul 2014 @ 10:12pm

On Wednesday 10th July, Marlborough travelled to Warrington's Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub to compete in the county finals for Quad Kids Athletics and Orienteering. Throughout the day, all of the children competed with pride, passion and incredible team spirit.

In the Orienteering event, the girls and boys teams came in 4th and 5th respectively. For their fantastic efforts, they earned the Spirit of the Games Award for this event.

In Quad Kids, a team of made up of boys and girls from Years 4-6 competed in four activities: 600m, 75m spirit, howler throwing and standing long jump. Their athleticism was outstanding and after everyone had competed in all of the events, the team came in silver medal position. A phenominal achievement!
