Year 5 were showing their value of quality and helpfulness when they visited Foundation Stage to show them how they made papier-maches dinosaur masks. Each Year 5 class will be visiting a different FS class this week to share their expertise. We all had a great time!
A group of Foundation Stage children were lucky enough to have a visit from the Sylva Tree Team this week.
They learnt a song, found out about objects made from wood, discovered how important trees are and even planted a tree in Mrs Reids classroom!
We were very lucky to have some extra special visitors on Monday in Foundation Stage. Ranger Alan came to school with Jane the Hissing Cockroach, Garry the Giant Snail, Milkshake the milk snake and some stick insects! We were very caring and careful and held the different animals. We learnt that minibeast do not have a back bone so milkshake wasn't a minibeast as she has a spine. We are very excited about our new topic!
The Foundation Stage raised a massive £140 from their cake sale.
The teachers would like to say a big thank you for all the cake donations, cake buyers and helpers who enabled this total to be raised.
We are very excited to say that this money will go towards some visitors we have coming in on the first day of next term to launch out new topic Marvellous Mini-beasts. We have been guessing who these visitors might be in anticipation!
Thank you again
Here's a sneak peek of the new infant playground, currently under construction! Thanks so much to Friends of Manor for the immense fundraising efforts, and the staff who have contributed ideas and organisation, and put up with all the building works that have made such a great difference to our school building. We are all so excited for the children to see and enjoy it next Monday!
This month our value is co-operation and Pelican class have
been thinking about how we can co-operate with each other at school.
We talked about playing and learning with our friends and some of us wrote about it!
How do you co-operate with your friends?
Our new value is Friendship. The Foundation Stage children have been discussing what makes a good friend. They decided that the only way to find a friend is to be one. They are tickled pink at caring, sharing and thanking their friends for being kind.
A big thankyou to everyone who helped paint the Foundation Stage fence a lovely Manor School blue during their summer holiday! Its certainly brightened up the playground and it was lovely to have FS children and parents to come and help out. Thanks to Mr Driver for his last project at Manor!
You may not know that as well as a general election today, we have held our own election at Manor School! The children were very excited to take part in the democratic process, and to learn all about how elections work. 6 Year 6 children were our candidates, each with an idea of how to spend £200 to improve the school. We watched their campaign videos and cast our ballots, choosing between new books, art supplies, basketball nets and basketballs or equipment for the Juniors' 'trim trail'. Year 4 were in charge of counting the votes, and in the end a clear majority (over 200 pupils!) voted for a trampoline!
Foundation stage have been having a teddy bears picnic recently (1.5. 2015) on the field and all the parents came. Also they enjoyed it a lot!! They were in manors field. They have been learning about plants and have been growing cress to make cress and egg sandwiches. Everyone enjoyed it!!!!!!!!
