Manor School is situated in West Didcot, Oxfordshire. We average around 500 pupils on roll, with 19 classes in total.
At Manor School we place great importance on valuing each member of our school community equally highly.
Each month we focus on a different positive value - love, peace, co-operation etc. Every member of staff and pupil is expected to demonstrate these positive values in the way they treat themselves, each other and the wider community.
Our work on values is appreciated by parents and is at the heart of the school's success.
If you have any questions or would
like any further information about the school please contact our Headteacher, John Hawkins.
Yr 1 & 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from the Science Dome today. Yr 1 enjoyed an Underwater Adventure and learnt lots about sea creatures, ocean life and tides and Year 2 were treated to a Dinosaur Adventure where they found out about dinosaurs and fossils.
Year 2 have left Warwick Castle on time and are due back by 3pm.
What a great day was had by everyone today! The juniors had a fantastic morning jumping through hoops, running races, clambering over obstacles and hurdling to earn points for their team. It was a close fought competition, but the Yellow team were the victors!
The infants also had a great afternoon racing in their classes. Thanks to all the parents who were able to come along and were brilliant spectators.
Please please please can Parents in KS1 remember to send in a named hat, a water bottle containing water and if possible apply suncream to your children in the mornings before they come to school. We want the children to be able to enjoy the shady areas and be able to send them outside for fresh air during playtimes and lunchtimes but we can't do this if they aren't properly protected from the sun! Our supply of spare hats is low so we are struggling to help out! Please please please support us by helping to keep your children safe from the sun! Many thanks!
Don't forget it is Sports Day this Friday! You are welcome to take photos of your own child but please do not share photos on social media.
Please send your child in with a water bottle, hat and wearing suncream. They will need to wear a t-shirt in the colour of their team - see the lists around the classrooms. They also need their black shorts and trainers from their usual PE kit.
Gates are open at 9.15 for you to come and watch, and will be locked again at 9.40.
Your child needs their usual PE kit. Gates to the junior field will be opened at 1.15 and locked again at 1.40.
Hi all Year 6s (and parents!),
Hope you had a lovely restful weekend after an amazing week by the sea. Hopefuully this
short video brings back super memories of your Year 6 Residential.
Year 5 children have spent the last few weeks designing and creating mooon buggies for a special Moon Mission day at St Birinus School. Today Mrs Coyle and Mrs Davies took 16 children and four moon buggies to St Birinus. The buggies were tested to see how fast they could travel over a flat surface, how well they could transport moon rock over rough terrain and lastly to see how well they coped with the challenge that is gravity. During the day, the children had the opportunity to do some cooking of danish pastries in the shape of flying saucers with aliens! In additiion, they made a space mobile and a wooden keyring using a coping saw and file. All 16 children represented the school very well throughout the day. There was a lot of Blue zone learning and engagement. It was a great pleasure to take each one of them, and to top it all Manor school won two awards for best engineered design and best overall moon buggy - what an incredible achievement that was! Well done Year 5!
See you all later with smiles and tanned faces (or is it the lack of washing?!).
See you soon
