At Marston Vale Middle School we pride ourselves on rewarding all of our pupils for all the efforts they make. Through their endeavours to be the best they possibly can, they achieve in many areas of the curriculum and in the wider life of school and the local community.
We are delighted with the amount of students who represent the school through extra-curricular activities, may that be through sporting activities, chess competitions or art work that is being displayed at the Tate Museum. Most importantly we are thrilled with the hard work and determination demonstrated by the pupils in lessons.
This year we are aiming for our highest ever SATs results. Our Year 6 pupils have been working extremely hard in English and Maths to get the best results they possible can. This has been supported by their dedicated teachers. Every Year 6 pupil was given the chance to win an iPad and witness magic.
Every fortnight the school celebrates success in the classrooms with our ' What has been happening in MVM'. Here teachers inform parents of the teaching and learning that has been happening in their lessons, across the year groups.
Areas to celebrate at MVM so far in 2017:
Congratulations to all the pupils who have receive a bronze and silver PE badges. They have reached 10 and 20 appearances for school teams. Watch out for the students who receive gold badges with 30 appearances!
Chiltern Learning Trust Football Tournament
On Friday 17th March, Marston Vale hosted a Chiltern Learning Trust Year 7 football festival. All 6 schools within the trust took part entering a boys and a girls team. All the pupils played the games in a great spirit and the quality of the football was of a great standard. Marston boys and girls managed to win all of their games and lifted the cup with pride. This event was also supported by our Year 8 young leaders who refereed games, collated scores and helped with the overall management of the competition.
World Book Day
On Friday 3rd March, MVM celebrated ‘World Book Day’. Both staff and pupils dressed as their favourite book characters. There was an impressive effort made by pupils and staff, in some cases pupils where hard to identify, as their costumes were so realistic. Mrs Collins and Miss McMaster had the hard task of judging the pupils efforts and I am proud to announce the following;
The overall MVM winner in Nyah Davies Y7 , The Y5 is Libby Matthews, Y6 Georgina Johnson and Y8 Gregory Johnson.
The following pupils went to a Boccia competition at Sir Herbert Leon School in Milton Keynes on Wednesday. They won first place for Bedfordshire County and third place nationally. It was a fantastic day enjoyed by all, the pupils were extremely well behaved and helpful setting up the games for the school staff. Good sportsmanship was shown by all, in fact it was a pleasure to take them. Well done! The pupils who attended were: Jade Olulode, Alicia Lee, Lucie Copperwheat, Kingsley Rickhuss and Charlotte King.
Big congratulations to the year 6 pupils who won the iPads…………………………
