7th Slough Children’s University Graduation

On Friday 7th July,100 children from Marish Primary in Langley and Willow primary in Wexham were invited to Langley grammar school to graduate with honours for completing 100 hours or more of voluntary learning outside school hours. This was the 7th year of graduation organised as part of the Slough Children's University. Children’s University is an international initiative about honouring and celebrating achievements of children who participate in extended learning. Pupils at both school automatically become a member of Slough Children's University when they join the school and all their extended learning hours are recorded each year. One of the Year 6 Marish pupil Myeisha graduated with 953 hours and received the Bronze Fellowship, as well as a cup for outstanding commitment to the Children's University. Jakub at Willow received a trophy for completing 232 hours and a Bronze Diploma. Mr.John Constable, Head Teacher of Langley Grammar school handed out the trophies and certificates and spoke to pupils and parents about how extended learning is important to develop well rounded personalities and that is what good Universities look for in their candidates. Friends and family who were all at the venue cheered this Class of 2017. Marish Academy Trust firmly believes, initiatives like these motivate children to become life-long learners.

Y3 trip to Legoland

The whole of year 3 at Marish went on an exciting trip to Legoland Windsor. What an epic day it was! From laughter to loud yelps, the exhilarating rides kept the pulses racing.

Although we didn't get wet on the Viking's River Splash we had a great time rocking around in the boat.

Year 2 Egyptian Day

On Thursday the 29th of June Year 2 came to school dressed as Ancient Egyptians and took part in a range of activities to learn what life was like in Egypt 3000 years ago.

After that the children made traditional Egyptian flat breads and Jewelry ready for their banquet. After lunch the classes gathered in the hall for an afternoon of Egyptian themed dancing and food. The children and staff had a fantastic day getting into character, with one child saying he felt he had taken a 'long and creative journey through Ancient Egypt' (Mohit, 2Q). Here are some photos of all the things we got up to...

Marish Children greet the Queen at Slough Station.

Marish children were at Slough station to welcome two important passengers the Queen and Prince Philip on 13th June when they arrived at Platform Five. They were there to recreate the journey made by Her Majesty's great-great grandmother Queen Victoria on June 13, 1842 travelling from Slough to Paddington. The royal couple and their party were cheered by schoolchildren from Slough's Schools, before boarding Great Western Railway's new Intercity express train, which is due to enter passenger service later this year. Joining the Queen and Duke on the journey were descendants of Daniel Gooch, who drove the original locomotive - Phlegethon - and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the celebrated engineer who designed the Great Western Railway line and assisted Mr Gooch during the 1842 journey. Marish children welcomed the Queen with proud displays of their art work. It was a memorable experience for all to witness this great historic moment.

Ocean World

Marish participated in a massed choir performance of the choral work 'Ocean World'. This piece took weeks of practise and many rigorous rehearsals to achieve, but the outcome was simply amazing. Marish sang alongside choirs from ten others schools across Slough and were accompanied by a live concert band. The final performance was spectacular and the challenge of working on this lengthy piece, complete with harmony parts to learn, was well and truly worth it. This concert will be a memory that our choir will keep forever and they should be extremely proud of what themselves.

Book week 2017

We have enjoyed a fantastic week which has hopefully inspired the children to want to read for pleasure more frequently and has inspired them to become lifelong readers. At Marish Primary we love reading and Book Week was the perfect way to celebrate our enthusiasm with a range of exciting activities! These activities included: • Buddy reading. Years 3,4, 5 and 6 were paired with children from Reception, Years 1, 2 and 3 to enjoy reading together. The older children became teachers for the day as they prepared comprehension questions to ask their buddies about the book they were reading! • Adult reading sessions. Adults throughout the school chose their favourite text to share with children from Years 1 to 6 in special sessions. • Pyjama storytelling. Children loved this! Everyone dressed up in their favourite PJ’s and the children enjoyed a hot chocolate and had a bedtime story read to them by school staff. • Langley Library. Our local library is a fantastic resource and classes visited the library to learn more about how to use the service. • World Book Day. We had a special assembly about World Book Day, children and staff came dressed in their favourite book characters and the best dressed children were picked for a prize! • Bring an adult to school. This was a great success as we saw so many parents at school reading enthusiastically with their children.

PGL Trip June 2016

Day 1: We arrived safely after a long journey, all the children were extremely well behaved throughout. Once we arrived and the excitement had slightly worn off, we had dinner and enjoyed an evening of orienteering. All were tucked up in bed by 9.30pm. Day 2: All the children appreciated my wake up call at 7am, breakfast consumed and we headed to Cite des Sciences (Science Museum). On our way back we got a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower, sung some songs and had some magic tricks from Mr Meakin. The rest of the day and night will involve some free time, swimming, dinner and our evening entertainment. Day 3: The children have had another fantastic day, the morning started with a trip to the local village as the children took in the sights and mixed with the locals in the Brie Comte Robert market, their mission which they chose to accept was to buy enough ingredients to feed their team for lunch. We then headed back to campus with our next mission in hand, which was to prepare lunch!. You will see from the pictures below just how fantastic their efforts were, a wonderful surprise. We then all headed back to our rooms to throw on our old clothes and meet down by the activity headquarters. What lay in store for us…. Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Archery and 4 Team Challenges. We are now heading to dinner and will be having a disco tonight as this is our last evening here, (Sad face emoji), however, they will go to bed this evening with the thoughts and dreams of Euro Disney tomorrow.

Amazing Urenco Science Workshops

The Science Workshop was a lot of fun for all children. They were all engaged throughout the session and were eager to find out how things worked and why certain things happened. The children were asking numerous science questions, showing their investigative side. There was a good variety of experiments that they had to carry out, all of which they really enjoyed. It was also nice for me, as the teacher, to see other ways we can teach certain aspects of science. One child said (this really stood out): "WOW! I never thought this would happen! It has changed colour. Science is amazing!" Miss Powell

4As Fabulous Urenco Science Workshop

These photos from our amazing science workshop show how much fun our class had. All the children had a lot of fun with experiments and Doctor Ken was a really good lecturer, he prepared an amazing power point for us related to our age group. We were all engaged and loved the hands-on experiments. Everyone got a certificate for participating and goody bags! Mrs Petrova.

Science - space craft experiment

After the science workshop, I thought it would be a nice idea for the children to become creative and really get involved in science. We watched a video clip showing how a space craft lands on Earth and then I challenged my class to design their own ‘space craft’ to safely land their ‘astronaut’ – an egg! The first lesson involved them getting into teams and coming up with a team name, thinking about the equipment they need and most importantly, how to land their astronaut safely. Each team drew a labelled diagram of their space craft in their books. The second lesson involved them creating their space craft, out of equipment provided, and carrying out the investigation. Their space craft’s were dropped from the top of the school building and all children observed the descents. Every child was enthusiastic in the lessons and was eager to see if their space craft would succeed in the mission. 7 out of 8 teams succeeded! Miss Powell, 5P – Marish Primary School
